About Us

The staff on this event were amazing! I had great conversation with all of the staff and they all taught me something I did not know. The brief about the tools beforehand, how to make the trail and use the tools was great...I would love to attend another event when I visit my son in Colorado again! Thank You for a WONDERFUL experience!!
