Summer Day Camps

May 11, 2013

The ELC's first summer camp of the season is, 'Frontier Explorers.' We'll learn games that people on the frontier used to play, explore the way they lived, and try some of the food they would have eaten.

Explore a place rich with history

The ground on which CSU's Environmental Learning Center stands was once home to Plains Indians, a place where pow wows and tribal council meetings took place.

The ELC's 212 acres of cottonwood forest, riparian areas, and prairie grasslands are now used as a living, learning environment to connect people with nature.

Summer camps

Every summer Colorado State's Environmental Learning Center hosts day camps for youth age 7 through 12.  There are five, week-long camps during the summer of 2013. Some of these camps are already full but do have wait lists.

We may accept younger children on a case-by-case basis. Participants will be broken up into age-appropriate groups for most activities, though this will vary based on number of attendees and the age break-down of each camp.

See the full list of camps and registration links

  • Camps are 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day.
  • Before (8:30 a.m.) and after (3:30 p.m.), care is available for an extra fee.
  • Drop off and pick up will always be at our East Drake site, though we may take field trips during the day.


Prices are be $140 for members and $170 for nonmembers. Before and after care will be $10 per child per week.
