Fort Collins Adventure Camp

We have a Purpose.

In Mighty Adventure Camp, our purpose is to build a community of inspired young outdoor enthusiasts who, as leaders, possess the tools, skills, and experience necessary to make sound decisions.

“Life Begins at the End of your Comfort Zone”

We believe that dynamic wilderness experiences have the ability to change lives!  In Mighty Adventure Camp, safety is our first priority, however we also encourage participants to challenge themselves and to take appropriate risks.  We believe that when campers are encouraged to leave their comfort zone behind, they can truly start to experience growth both in and outside of camp!

 

Camp Programs

Adventure Camp is available in two locations for 2022.  Check out the Programs at each location below.

Meet the Staff

The key to our camp program being successful year after year is our Amazing Staff.  We build our team from individuals whose passion is sharing the love of the outdoors with youth.  All our staff are extensively background checked, trained, and responsible with campers.

Why the cost?

We try to make Adventure Camp as affordable as we can every year.  Adventure Camp does not have large profit margins.   We do what we do because we LOVE it! The cost we charge is reflective of running a program of this caliber.  There are a lot of expenses with field trips, permits, rising fuel costs, and quality staff that result in our prices.  One week in the program and you’ll understand, it might be your child’s best summer ever!

Michael Berna

Miramont North - Adventure Camp Director

Michael has been on the Mighty Team since the summer of 2019. Some of his favorite outdoor adventures have stemmed from the ‘worst’ situations. Camping in extreme cold temperatures, rappelling in a blizzard, or generally not having the correct gear. Michaels focus with Adventure Camp is to present the tools necessary both mentally and physically for the campers to not only survive in the outdoors but to thrive and have a blast regardless of what goes wrong.
“Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far they can go.” – T.S Eliot
