New Treks
at a Glance


New Treks creates new opportunities for Denver’s youth to access the outdoors. By working directly with local schools and organizations, we teach the foundations of adventure to ensure that youth have the knowledge and confidence to safely enjoy the outdoors.

During the school year we teach classes in Title 1 schools and schools that serve underserved youth grades K-12. Our classes range from the environmental sciences to adventure recreation in which our students earn credit. We meet the schools needs for credit and have had students earn environmental science, earth science, elective, PE, and more in credit for school. 

During the summer and holiday breaks we work with youth service organizations. These range from transitional housing to behavioral health centers. We provide half day to full day activities or a learning progression style in adventure recreation. We also work with a local ski mountain to offer winter sport lessons with our instructors at a reduced cost.

Teaching in schools as an elective class, our students earn credit while learning hard skills associated with rock climbing, paddling, backpacking, and more! Through our lessons and these activities, students gain social-emotional skills that help them navigate life outside of the classroom.

By offering our programming as an in-school class we remove many, if not all, the barriers associated with access to the outdoors. We build trust, familiarity, comfort, and understanding of the outdoors by introducing it as a regular and consistent class for our students.


"We should come home from adventures, and perils, and discoveries every day with new experience and character."
