Pre Kamp Vail

June 12-Aug. 18 | Ages: 2.5 to 5

Pre Kamp Vail knows how to provide adventure for children with little legs and big spirits. The low camper-to-counselor ratio allows your camper to receive individual attention as they enjoy self-directed play, arts and crafts, songs, games and a daily adventure outing.

Camp Vail

May 30-Aug.18 | Ages: 5 (AND entering K) to 12

Vail’s premier day camp invites children to experience the countless activities of Vail’s unique alpine setting in an engaging and inclusive environment. Campers tailor their day by choosing from a wide variety of sports, art and science activities or special outings.

Mad Scientists

June 30, July 14, July 28 | Ages: 7 to 12

Camp Eco Fun

Camp Eco Fun offers children hands-on learning about the natural environment at the Vail Nature Center, plus crafts and activities that support the weekly ecological theme. VRD partners with Walking Mountains and the Vail Nature Center to provide kids an opportunity to playfully explore nature.
