School year is approaching the end and a lot of parents have been planning some fun stuff to do already. However, there are a lot more who are not quite ready for it! Let’s see how we can keep all the energetic kids occupied and entertained here in the mountains for either locals or visitors. Take a look at these activities in the mountains for the kiddos.
It is never a bad a idea to get kids outdoors and try something adventurous, especially when in the mountains. With two convenient locations in Buena Vista and Idaho Spring, kids can release their wild side to the extreme! Get them suited up for some class II and III whitewater fun on the Arkansas River, Clear Creek River, Blue River, or Upper Colorado. Let kids be kids and gear them up for a thrilling zipline adventure. Looking for more family quality time? Rent a cabin or a campsite by Arkansas River after the trip, grill out and finish off with some campfire stories.
At the Breckenridge Fun Park on Peak 8, this might be one of the biggest playgrounds in the summer for kids of all ages. With its convenient location this fun park is great for lcoals and visitors. A bunch of activities such as alpine slides, gold coast runner, mini golf and bungee-trampoline, your kids are sure to be worn out by the end of the day. There is no parking on Peak 8 so make sure to leave your car behind and hop on the free gondola ride up. Who does not like a free ride especially when you get to see Breckenridge from above. Want to get away from a big crowd? Escape to nature on Peak 9 with horseback riding trips where kids and parents can spend some hours wandering through the tranquil Ten Mile Range.
The Mountain Top Children’s Museum in Breckenridge is an outside classroom where kids are educated and have fun at the same time. Various day camps and field trip options are available throughout the summer. Highly trained staffs will take the kids outside and learn about the town history, pan some gold, learn to make some pizza, or stay inside and learn how to paint like Picasso or become a junior CIA!
Whether your kids are adventurous or more conservative, be sure to encourage them to try some of these activities and have some fun!
