Mountain Campus

Colorado School Activities

The Mountain Campus at Fountain Valley School of Colorado is haven from the demanding schedule of Fountain Valley School of Colorado and city life. It's a place for learning, fun and camaraderie.

Freshman and Senior Retreats
These retreats happen at the beginning of every school year. The seniors spend Saturday night together doing team-building exercises, setting goals and discussing their class legacy. When the freshmen arrive Sunday, seniors greet them and welcome them to their first Mountain Campus experience. The two classes spend one-on-one time getting to know each other before the seniors return to the main campus. 

Western Immersion Program
The four-day Western Immersion Program is an interdisciplinary experience for sophomores that has its academic roots in the traditional FVS curriculum, yet lends itself to experiential learning.

Ski Weekend
The Mountain Campus is the base for the annual Ski Weekend, held every January. Students hit the slopes of nearby Colorado ski resorts during the day and relax in the cabin at night.

Senior Seminar
The last night of Senior Seminar is at the Mountain Campus. Seniors share memories and read letters they wrote to themselves as freshmen.

Mountain Bike Weekend

Mountain Bike Weekend participants leave on a Saturday from the main campus and pick up rental bikes in Buena Vista (if needed). Riders stay at the Mountain Campus and end the day soaking in the Princeton Hot Springs. 

Pack Trip
The Mountain Campus is the base for the yearly student pack trip, where riders take their horses and spend two days riding in the Colorado mountainous areas.

Mountain Campus Alumni Weekend Kickoff
Alumni Weekend attendees and family members can visit the Mountain Campus for the two days before the main event kicks off, participatingin a variety of activities, including rafting and hiking. Of course, there's a trip to the nearby hot springs!
