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, as well as scooters and push bikes for those just starting out. 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!

Don't let the kids have all the fun!  Join us for a bike rodeo or family group ride. We host FAMILY EVENTS throughout the year.

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 and Red Rock Canyon. To beat the heat of those dog days of summer, we head over to the waterfront at Quail Lake where we paddle kayaks and standup paddle boards. We even get into a rhythm working in teams, to paddle our tandem kayaks. More experienced cyclists hit the trails at Ute Valley Park, learning to navigate the off-road terrain. We'll have a blast on our fleet of "Fat Bikes".

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.
