As the leaves start to change color and kids return to school, it is time to reflect on an amazing summer and all the happenings here at Cottonwood.
We kicked the summer off with a couple of weekend adult survival clinics, where our brave attendees not only built a survival shelter, but actually slept in them!
We continued our summer journey with two, 7-day courses geared towards the mighty teenager! The first was all about the stone age, where students made their own tools, learned primitive fire skills, and built debris shelters. The second was all about the wolves. The students immersed themselves in the land of the wolves, learning about their habitat and culture, as well as nature awareness, animal tracking, and survival skills.
We ended the summer by giving back. Team Cottonwood joined Sunrise Century, a 100 mile bike race, for a day of volunteering as route marshalls in beautiful Boulder. And to top that off, we moved mountains at Mt. Evans with our valiant volunteers and Colorado Fourteeners, while on a trail building mission.
