Getting kids to play outside more often is such an important mission, and we’re getting help from people and organizations all over Colorado. Everyone, from Colorado Parks and Wildlife to the Denver Public Library, is offering programs and activities. Best of all, most of them are free. Learn how you can get involved.
Crank up your outdoor adventures! Denver Parks and Recreation offers year-round activities for youth and families to get outside and stay active. Check out everything from group hikes and environmental education to the Genesee Ropes course and paddleboarding in the latest activity guide.
Want to take your kiddo to a state park but you’re on a budget? Colorado libraries are lending free "Check Out State Parks" passes and an activity backpack with binoculars, brochures and more. Find a participating library near you, check out the backpack with your library card, and start exploring.
PEAK Online videos and activities help kids ages 7-12 understand the Seven Principles of outdoor ethics and how Leave No Trace skills help protect outdoor places we love. After you and your kiddo complete PEAK Online, download a certificate of completion.
