Aspen Snowmass in the Summer 

Camp Aspen Snowmass activities will begin for the summer on June 15 and continue through Aug. 21, 202o. Programming will run with social distancing protocols in place that will engage children with safety in mind first. Programs this year will include downhill biking in the Snowmass Bike Park, rock climbing on the Rugged Ascent Climbing Wall, fishing, rocket building, mountain boarding, arts and crafts, hiking, Treeline Challenge Course and the Breathtaker Alpine Coaster. 

New this year, a Private Camp option is available to ensure camper’s safety and limit exposure while also providing a personal and enjoyable experience. Private Camp from Camp Aspen Snowmass will include a custom experience and will be limited to members of the family or a small group selected by families in order to limit camper exposure and exercise social distancing outdoors. Private Camp options will be available for kids 3-15 and have a maximum of five children/teens per group. All activities will be age-appropriate and lift access is included in the cost.

Programming (reservations required)

In order to maintain social distancing rules and sanitation, Aspen Snowmass has updated programming. While some activities will be removed from the calendar, this also provides the opportunity to offer campers new, unique activities as well. Reservations are required for all daily activities this summer. As always, safety is a top priority and campers will be spending the majority of the day outdoors and on the mountain. When indoors, due to weather or other circumstances, campers will be required to wear masks. 

Aspen Snowmass will be following state guidelines regarding young children and masks. Group sizes will adhere to up-to-date COVID-19 guidelines and state licensing regulations. Campers will remain with the same group of children/teens and staff for the entire day. Guidelines no longer allow Aspen Snowmass to provide lunch for campers and all campers are required to bring a nut-free lunch from home as well as their own water bottle. 

Health and safety of the children is the top priority and programs, group sizes and lunches will be modified accordingly. For an update on safety information visit, www.aspensnowmass.com/safety/announcements.
