Fort Collins Summer Camps


Fort Collins Summer Camps


Update: All 2020 summer camps have been canceled. Please see our Covid-19 Article for more info.

Fort Collins summer camps the way they’re meant to be with hot dogs around a fire, overnights under the stars, creek exploration, rock climbing and more. Enjoy a summer camp adventure in our intentionally primitive camp 45 minutes from Fort Collins; an off-the grid, pristine playground where kids can discover both the natural world and their own innate skills and abilities. It’s a haven for imagination and possibility, a venue for developing friendships. It’s a supportive environment for kids to challenge themselves and expand their comfort zones.

The No Barriers Youth summer camps are a phenomenally fun experience that allow kids to become leaders, to support each other, make decisions and take ownership over their experience. Our seasoned camp leaders don’t just escort kids from one activity to the next, they create teachable moments using the natural environment. They empower kids to learn, grow and have ridiculous amounts of fun!

Getting immersed in the culture of India and getting to know and love the children was the greatest. When the students would cling to me at the end of class, and tell me how much they enjoyed having me there was heartbreaking.

There is so much life, happening all the time. It's crazy to think that, after only three weeks, I feel like I've become accustomed to so much of how the world move.

I just wanted to take a moment to formally thank you for another unbelievable and life changing trip. No Barriers Youth made it all possible and took the guesswork out of a potentially nerve wracking and complicated task.
