Flagler Outdoor Adventure in Colorado

FLAGLER, Colo. – Youth from eastern Colorado have a chance to experience an amazing weekend of free outdoor learning at Flagler State Wildlife Area. Colorado Parks and Wildlife is hosting the first Flagler Outdoor Adventure the weekend of June 29, 30 and July 1. Things get going at noon on Friday, June 29 and run until 5 p.m. on Sunday, July 1. Outdoor skills training and educational workshops will be offered throughout the weekend.

The weekend slate of activities includes opportunities for families with kids over the age of 10 to camp, earn a hunter education card, practice shooting sports in a safe environment and learn outdoor skills from Parks and Wildlife staff.

All youth participating must be accompanied by an adult but the whole family is welcome to come along and enjoy the Outdoor Adventure. A camping area will be set up and Colorado Parks and Wildlife staff and volunteers will be providing meals for registered participants throughout the weekend.

As you can imagine, this once-a-year event fills up quickly and the number of participants is limited. To reserve a spot for the weekend, contact Warren Cummings, District Wildlife Manager at 719-775-2025.

The Flagler State Wildlife Area is located east of the community of Flagler in Kit Carson County. The wildlife area is a youth-only hunting area but is open to the public for camping, hiking, fishing and wildlife viewing.
