High Trails
2018 High Trails Information
 
What is High Trails?

High Trails is District 20 Outdoor Experiential Education Program for sixth grade students. Students stay at High Trails, which is near Florissant, Colorado, for four days and three nights. Boys are in boy’s cabins and girls are in girl’s cabins with District 20 and Timberview teachers in each cabin. Students attend outdoor classes called “Discovery Groups” in both the morning and the afternoon. Discovery Groups study Colorado history, geology, geography, orienteering, crafts, and many other topics. High Trails camp staff, District 20 teachers, Timberview teachers and District 20 high school students provide the instruction for Discovery Groups. There is a Timberview teacher with each Discovery Group at all times. This is a unique learning opportunity and is the number 1 highlight from middle school. Many students apply to return as high school instructors.

 
Cost

The cost is $280.00. Fees cover lodging, meals, transportation, lesson materials, and the program itself. We believe that no student should miss the opportunity to attend due to financial need. Therefore, scholarship assistance is available. Please send an email to Gina Perez at gina.perez1@asd20.org by September 14th if this causes a financial hardship for you.

  

Payment

Academy D20 is now offering a secure on-line payment system for High Trails through PayForIt.net. VISA, Mastercard, and electronic checks may be used with this system.
