Help maintain a high-use trail on Mount Elbert--the tallest of Colorado's 14,000-foot peaks--during this one-night multi-generational camp out. We invite the whole family to participate in this fun, educational community event to restore a piece of the South Mount Elbert Trail. Attendees ages 14 and over are invited to participate in trail work, and an educational program will be provided for kids ages 7-14. Educational topics presented to all ages will include: Basic Camping, A "Be Bear Aware" Wildlife Talk, and Leave No Trace Ethics. Get Outdoors Leadville! will be providing lunch and dinner during the weekend. This event is perfect for families, first-time campers, and those interested in dipping their feet into the world of trail construction and maintenance.
**This event is for ages 7 and up. RSVP is required.
