Coldharbour Institute hosts 6 Fridays throughout the Summer. Each Friday has a different theme. Ages 6-12 are welcome. The cost for each Friday is $30.00 or $160.00 for all 6 Fridays. Scholarships are available, thanks in part to the City of Gunnison. See the details below for Friday's Camp on July 8th. Friday, July 8: Art/Science Units – In the morning students will go on a hike and along the way they will collect materials like leaves on the ground to make art projects when they return to the ranch. They will also get a chance to make casts of animal tracks then paint them. In the afternoon the students will be led by a graduate student checking different trail cams spread throughout the ranch. After that they will participate in a science experiment using the data they collected from the cameras.
Gunnison Valley is also host to several beloved annual events. A classic winter event is The Alley Loop, a Nordic ski race that doubles as a costume contest. In fall, Mt. Crested Butte hosts the famous Chili and Beer Festival. Every summer in Gunnison, a crowd gathers to watch America’s fourth-oldest rodeo, Cattlemen’s Days. There are also festivals in Crested Butte that celebrate local art, music, wildflowers, and more. Attending an annual event is a good way to connect with the culture of the Gunnison Valley. You might even create a new tradition for you and your family and friends!
