Our mission


Together we will discover the wonders and adventure of exploring our own backyard as we take to the neighborhood. We will take advantage of the summer sunshine, nourish our bodies through physical activity and fresh food, and challenge our minds through activities that encourage exploration and innovation.  We will develop a community that supports skill development and helps kids to be successful as they grow.

Go West Camps uses biking in its summer day camps and teen leadership programs to promote healthy living, community awareness and skill building.

kids on the go

At Go West we're committed to getting kids out "ON THE GO".  We travel on foot and by pedal power. Whether it's off to the pool or out to explore a nature spot, we walk or ride to get there. From avid bikers and hikers to beginners, everyone joins in the fun. Our fleet of two-wheeled vehicles includes bicycles of all sizes to fit every camper. Each three-week session includes a course in bike safety, general bike maintenance and navigation skills. And, for the tech lovers out there, we use fun tools to track our steps, miles ridden, and routes taken. Mom and dad can even follow along from home or the office!

 

Go West Camps includes adventure activities in our summer day camps and teen programs. These activities give kids the opportunity to build skills and challenge themselves.

JOIN in THE ADVENTURE

Summer isn't complete without a little adventure.  We rock climb in picturesque Garden of the Gods, Red Rock Canyon and North Cheyenne Canyon. To beat the heat of those dog days of summer, we head over to the waterfront at Quail Lake and Palmer Lake where we standup paddle board. More experienced cyclists hit the trails at Ute Valley Park and Red Rock Canyon, learning to navigate the off-road terrain. Campers will have a blast on our fleet of "Fat Bikes".

Adventure isn't all that we do

Campers will build an appreciation and understanding of nature through our hands on wildlife, geology and pond exploration programs. Arts and crafts and fine art programs including photography, drawing and painting allow campers to express their creativity. A sense of stewardship is gained through volunteer work in Ute Valley Park. Team building, large group games like Capture the Flag and sining camp songs are a tradition that kids will remember long into adulthood.

fresh from the garden

From seed to lunchbox, we think it's important for campers to have a hand in the process. Planting, watering, weeding, harvesting...we do it all.  Caring for our community garden is a team effort, and we all get our hands dirty. The delicious rewards are the perfect match for our camp lunches and snacks. Make Your Own Pizza is sure to be a favorite.
