Alpine

Alpine

Alpine is a wilderness camp held near Gunnison, Colorado. Adventure Experiences, Inc. owns and operates this rural campground, where you will stay in cabins, experience cold weather at night and have few modern conveniences. This five-day experience includes home-cooked meals in a warm hunting lodge, white water rafting, low and high element challenge courses, rock climbing, an adventure race, and close-knit friendships that can last throughout your college career.

Please note that you will not get cellphone service while you’re at camp, and you will have very limited access to electrical outlets – so don’t plan to use your phone as an alarm clock.

Keep in mind that temperatures will vary significantly, from 15 degrees at night to 80 in the afternoon, and we will be spending most of the time outside. Please pack accordingly.

Adventure Experiences, Inc. provides the necessary wilderness equipment for your trip; however you should plan to bring the items listed, in addition to clothing for five days. Attempt to pack as lightly as possible, but keep in mind that the weather in Colorado in July and August can change rapidly. Rain or snow showers are likely and temperatures can vary from 15 degrees at night to 80 degrees during the afternoon. This means that wool and synthetic blends are preferred over cotton clothing. Try to bring “layering” clothes that include both cotton and wool/synthetic. Also, please let the camp staff know if you have any health conditions of which we should be aware.

Cost: $475*

*Please see our Cancellation & No Show Policy.
