CAMP PROGRAM INFO: The Road Less Traveled as an organization was founded by Jim and Donna Stein in 1991, and has been successfully running safe, exciting, life-changing trips for teens ever since. Both Jim and Donna are still the current directors, and are integrally involved in every single aspect of the company. In the summer, they are on call 24/7, available both to parents as well as to our leaders in the field.

We are an ACA accredited organization with an impeccable track record. We believe in the process of accreditation. It allows us to compare our standards to other professionals in the industry. Our accreditation allows us to follow specific standards related to leader screening including use of application forms, reference checks, personal interviews, work history review, and background checks.

Many years ago, we were the first company serving young adults to require that all leaders have a Wilderness First Responder (WFR) medical certification. WFR training is far more advanced than standard first aid or wilderness first aid. In addition to this certification, we carry extensive first aid kits on all of our programs that include antibiotics and epinephrine. Contents, protocols, and standing orders are reviewed and updated every year by our Medical Director who is an MD.

Since our inception, RLT has been on the cutting edge of technological advances in communication. We began carrying Iridium satellite phones on all of our programs as soon as they were available. Today we continue to carry the latest in emergency communication systems. According to geographic location, programs are equipped with satellite phones, ground-to-air radios, and/or cellular phones providing the possibility of 24-hour access to medical help in case of emergency.

OTHER CAMP INFO: Rainbow Trail Lutheran Camp invites you to join us for an outstanding opportunity to share in the love and joy of God's family. We are an outreach ministry of the congregations of theRocky Mountain Synod, Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. We are located in the heart of the San Isabel National Forest of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. The majestic wilderness becomes an excellent setting for growth and renewal. We encourage campers to make new friends and develop new skills while discovering their gifts and growing in their faith. The strength of our ministry is that Christ is the center of all we do.

Our Bible Studies are based on the theme “Forgiven: A Better Version of Me.” In the New Testament, Jesus talks about forgiveness, about forgiving ‘seventy times seven.” We have received the ultimate gift in the forgiveness of our sins and the salvation that we have received through Jesus Christ. So what does it mean for us? Are we good enough for God to forgive us? Can we forgive ourselves? What about when it comes to forgiving others? These are all questions that we will wrestle with during our week together. When we live in the forgiveness we have received from God, we will be transformed; we will be different. How can that change our world, not only at camp, but especially when we come down the mountain? And how will that forgiveness make us better versions of ourselves? Our summer staff is carefully chosen and well-trained to provide excellent Christian role models for youth. Come spend a week with us this summer! We're eagerly anticipating your arrival!

CAMP SESSION DATES & FEES:
All sessions are week long, beginning June 9th. We focus on a specific age group each week. Regular week of camp is $435. We also offer half week sessions for younger children. Those sessions are $220. See our website for specific week information.

CAMP LOCATION: Extreme Sports Camp is located in the Roaring Fork Valley between Glenwood Springs and Aspen. Many of our activities take place throughout the valley as well as Rifle, New Castle, etc. Our office is located in Carbondale, CO, about 30 miles from Aspen.

CAMP FACILITIES: Our camp facilities vary depending on the season and programs that are in session. During the summer months, Extreme Sports Camp stays at Colorado Mountain College Spring Valley Campus in Carbondale, Colorado. During the Fall weekend programs, Extreme Sports Camp meets at their office in Carbondale and participates in activities throughout the valley. The winter program takes place at Snowmass Village and Ski Resort, specifically at the Viceroy.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Our staff at Extreme Sports Camp are educated and experienced in working with individuals across the autism spectrum and at any level of athletic ability. Certifications within the staff vary from Teacher Certifications, Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist, Behavior Specialists, and Vocational Rehabilitation.

Extreme Sports Camp is embarking on their second winter season as a PSIA (Professional Ski Instructors of America) school for autism. Our mission is to enhance the health, social engagement, and personal growth of people with autism through challenging, attainable, and enjoyable recreational, athletic, and work programs. Unlike their typical peers, children and adults with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) have few opportunities to experience the more advanced, age-appropriate activities which truly challenge them.

Extreme Sports Camp provides this opportunity and the underlying instructional approach to realize it. ESC believes that learning any activity is best accomplished through sustained and repeated immersion, coupled with the expectation that the participant can in fact progress to the next level.

We have chosen activities that can be �extreme� to an ASD child but which can also be mastered by that child through incremental learning. The activity provides an intrinsic motivation to learn and work, and the staff of ESC provides the specialized instruction to enable the camper to succeed.

Extreme Sports Camp was founded in 2004 in Aspen, Colorado.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: Scholarship applications don't have to be submitted at the same time that you register- the earlier we receive them, the better! If your child lives in the local area (between Aspen and Parachute) and you want to enter him or her into the camp for respite reason, you may be qualified for assistance from The Valley Autism Assistance Fund, a charitable initiative of the Aspen Valley Foundation that provides monetary support to local families with members on the autism spectrum.

Please see the Aspen Valley Foundation website for more information and application instructions.

External scholarships are available as well. Autism Care and Treatment Today offers scholarships to families, with priority going to military families and families with more than one child affected with autism. See Our Camp Website Link: www.act-today.org for more information.

FAMILY CAMP SESSION(S): During our summer programs, we offer a Family Session, where families are able to come stay overnight and participate in the activities with their children.

YEAR-ROUND PROGRAMS: Extreme Sports Camp offers a fun, rewarding, and challenging overnight sports camp that provides the opportunities and support for children and adults on the autism spectrum to progress in active sports. Our staff is experienced in working with individuals across the spectrum and at any level of athletic ability. We know that people with autism can succeed at recreational sports � they just need the chance and the appropriate instructional approach.

Whether your camper's goal is improving athletic ability or building friendships and deepening social skills, Extreme Sports Camp has what you need! Participants experience sports activities each day that include wake boarding, water skiing, tubing, biking, rock climbing, white water kayaking, climbing on a ropes challenge course, hiking, and swimming. Activities are repeated throughout the week to build skills and confidence.

At our base camp at the Colorado Mountain College Spring Valley campus, ESC offers supplemental activities in a social environment such as yoga, games, movies, therapeutic drumming and dancing, and music in the park, as well as low-key athletics such as disk golf and field sports. We also now offer an adult-specific program lead by a dedicated Adult Team Supervisor. This program includes our regular sports plus employment-skills enhancement.

Depending on the individual's skill level, participants can assist our counseling, logistics and sports instruction staff, or they can focus on fully-supported development of discrete job tasks. Training is in the outdoor sports and recreation field in an ASD-friendly environment and is fully individualized. Our location on a community college campus facilitates age-appropriate living and working away from family. ESC is known for its winter ski/snowbard programs and summer camps; but we don't just disappear during the spring and fall! Our weekend program runs throughout the school year, offering a variety of outdoor (and some indoor) activities throughout the Roaring Fork Valley to small groups of no more than seven local participants from Aspen or the Roaring Fork Valley.

The program is designed for individuals anywhere on the autism spectrum from age six and up. Our pioneering methods combine relationship-based, social-emotional supports, embedded motivators & positive reinforcements � plus sports proficiency instruction & analytics are effective for ANY skill level! At the Winter Day Camp, we enjoy 5 days of skiing and snowboarding at Snowmass, Colorado, one of the world�s premier family-friendly ski resorts just a few miles outside of Aspen. The private lesson option pairs campers with Aspen Skiing Company instructors trained in working with persons with autism. Because it is a 1:1 program, private lessons allow for greater flexibility and convenience for participants than the camp program while still providing them the same quality ski/ snowboard instruction.

Families that want their students to enjoy a lesson with an Aspen Ski Company professional instructor while developing their social skills in a mainstream environment can request to sign-up for our buddy-supported group lessons. Supervised by an ESC buddy, enrolled students will participate in one of Aspen Skiing Company�s group lessons alongside neuro-typical learners of the same age group and skill level. The buddy-supported group lessons package includes assistance from an ESC buddy throughout the day. Improve Basic Life Skills! Adult Participants improve their social, vocational, daily living, and athletic skills with Extreme Sports Camp's trademark 1:1 support.

At ESC, we know that there are limited resources available for adults with autism after leaving school to facilitate their entry into the outside world. But adults with autism want to live dignified lives, just like other adults! So ESC has joined the growing national and global adult autism support movement by offering assistance and opportunities for young adults to integrate themselves in the mainstream Aspen and Roaring Fork Valley Community.

We learn vocational skills through job training and job hunting with our HIRE Adult Program, social skills through age-appropriate activities such as dining out and going to concerts, daily living skills through community living in ESC's camp house in Carbondale, Colorado, and athletic skills through ESC's classic athletic activities such as swimming, wake boarding, and hiking.

Our approach is thus holistic, attending to every aspect of our participant's maturing personality, and communal, incorporating participants into all facets of life in the valley and promoting community autism awareness. We recognize that people with autism are as multifaceted and are social beings as much as anyone else.

In the afternoon we will work with the herd of horses and we will learn how to calm ourselves and how to safely be in relationship with the horses and each other.

Tuesday: Leadership and Embodiment

On this day we will be exploring leadership and what it means to be a leader. We will discuss personal power, body language and communication. We will spend the day working with these topics and learning to lead the horses in a safe and productive way.

Wednesday: Honesty and Conflict

On the third day of camp we will be exploring honesty and conflict. We will spend time educating the girl’s about their brain’s and their body’s reactions to fear and conflict, in an effort to teach them how to work with difficult emotions in a positive way. We will be “joining” with the horses on this day. This activity is all about honesty, connection and relationship.

Thursday: Feeling Powerful

On this day we will be working on the skills we have built so far and we will be increasing our horsemanship skills in preparation for riding on Day 5. In order to feel powerful we need to be able to calm ourselves, be a leader, and communicate honestly. We will use all of these skills in an activity with the horses, concentrating on communication, trust and self-worth.

Friday: Intimacy and Trust

The last day! On this day we will be riding all day long. We will be bringing in all of the tools we have built since Day 1 and we will be celebrating all we have learned and done in the 5 days.
