The sunny, summer days in Colorado beg us to get out and enjoy the absolutely stunning outdoors right here in our own backyard.  This summer, take advantage of all the recreational fun to be had at the Rueter-Hess Reservoir.  The whole family can head out to the Reservoir and take a free, guided tour.  Learn all there is to know about this relatively new addition to the area. 

There is also the Avid 4 Adventure Children’s Day Camp (pre-registration is required.)  In a technology driven world, many children are discounnected from the nautral world that is literally all around them.  Avid4Adventure Camps, currently run in Colorado, Californaia and Oregon, introduce kids to the power of the outdoors and empowering outdoor adventures.  Camps run June 2nd through August 3rd, Monday through Friday.  For more information or to register your campers, go to
