05 May 2014
For kids, there are few things that define summer more than camp. However, across the Vail Resorts portfolio, summer is a family adventure. Here are some ways kids can enjoy the quintessential summer activity and grownups can stay and play, too.

Keystone, Colo.

  • For the kids | Keystone Science School’s Day Camp features a different theme each week that speaks to the minds and imaginations of young campers. Kids can transform into a pirate, superhero or astronaut, while enjoying hands-on activities, outdoor adventures and more. Drop-in day camp is also available.
  • For the parents | Camp isn’t just for kids at Keystone. The Beti AllRide Skills Clinic is a summer bike camp for adults only. Scheduled for June 21-22, there are numerous options to choose from, ranging from a single day of instruction, to a full weekend at Keystone including lodging and spa packages. Attendees will also have access to afternoon yoga sessions, a gourmet continental breakfast, lunch and happy hour. Keystone is also offering new and expanded wellness options this summer, from mountaintop yoga, designed to refresh and rejuvenate at 11,600 feet, to the 2,000 calorie burner hike that will elevate both your heart rate and altitude as you make your way to a picnic lunch with spectacular views.
  • Lodging Deal | Take advantage of the special lodging offer available for summer campers. Save up to 33 percent on lodging for five nights or more and 20 percent with drop-in day camp.
