2020-21  Voyages

Students at Renaissance participate in voyages to gain the highest degree of learning the Colorado great outdoors can offer. Voyage experiences build from year to year. A kindergarten student learns basic skills in navigating the outdoors with safety on day trips, while a sixth grader goes on multi-day trips to explore and face personal and group challenges in the wilderness discovering a stronger self and developing a stronger community. 
2021 Spring Voyage Day Trips
 
We have been approved for spring voyage day trips to Castlewood Canyon. 
 

Directions for Drop Off and Pickup:

Parents, please drop your child off using the West Entrance to Castlewood Canyon, (off Castlewood Canyon Road west of Franktown). After passing the Park Ranger Booth, drive into the park about 1 mile until you see a parking area on your left and some bathrooms a bit beyond that - see map below.  You will see your teacher and Mr. Cody there to greet the students. Parents are not required to purchase a pass as you enter the State Park as we will have prepaid passes for all students.   

 

Pickup is at the same location. Please do not enter the park more than 15 minutes before your pickup time as we will not be ready and you could be assessed a fine if parked and waiting.
