Yampatika’s summer camps open for registration for children

Camps offer a variety of new themes, including Wildlife Wardens, From Worms to Wolves, Skulls and Bones Society and Utes, Miners and Pioneers, under the direction of youth program coordinator Mike Loots. Also new this summer is junior naturalist program training for 13- to 15-year-olds.

“This year’s camp themes revolve around the relationship between recreation and restoration,” Loots said in a news release. “We maintain our focus on natural communities and ramp up our offerings for recreation opportunities on public lands.”

Camps, which run from through Aug. 17, include weeklong programs, overnight adventures and drop-in day options. One of the highlights of the summer camp schedule is a five-night backpacking trip for 12- to 15-year-olds the first week in August.

In addition, Yampatika’s camp will be running one week longer than past years to better accommodate the start of the school year.

Need-based scholarships are available once again this year for families.

“We are excited that the Craig-Scheckman Family Foundation is supporting our scholarship program this summer,” said Kellie Gorman, Yampatika program director, in a news release. “Their support will help us increase our capacity to offer scholarships to at-risk families in the Yampa Valley”
