Adventure Trips and Clinics

Adventure Trips and Clinics are designed to provide a balance of challenge, education, and fun!

We offer a variety of trips and clinics tailored mostly to enhancing the beginners experience in outdoor adventure activities.

You will learn new or enhance your current skills through the instruction and coaching provided by our highly trained staff.

While most of our trips explore our own San Luis Valley and its neighboring mountain ranges past trips have gone as far as Moab Utah, Joshua Tree National Park, and the Anasazi Ruins in Chaco Canyon.

We hope you will join us this semester. You won’t be disappointed!
