"You can’t beat working outside all day in Colorado."

Being a part of the Youth Corps in Colorado has helped me figure out what I want to do with my life and has provided me with skills and knowledge that I will use throughout my professional career. I feel so lucky to have joined the Youth Corps and want to thank Great Outdoors Colorado for making this experience possible. You can’t beat working outside all day and knowing you are clearing trails, creating paths and preparing campgrounds for people you know will really appreciate it. It’s been the best learning experience I’ve ever had. Create your GOCO adventure Click to Close

"Every trail seems to have an incredible view."

I moved to Colorado because of the hiking and biking and all the wonderful outdoor activities. Every trail seems to have an incredible view of mountains, lakes or forests. There is no place like Colorado. I’m turning 50 next year and my goal is to climb every 14er in the state. Wish me luck! Thank you, Great Outdoors Colorado for making this possible.

"There is great whitewater right out my back door."

There is nothing better than slipping into my kayak and finding some great whitewater to paddle through unless, of course, that whitewater is right out my back door. It’s amazing that, thanks to Great Outdoors Colorado, we have a beautiful and challenging whitewater park right here in downtown Canon City. It’s great to have this place where I can enjoy kayaking and my wife can watch from the shore or my kids can play in the park nearby.  We are so lucky to have this spot in our community.

"My favorite memories are of camping with dad."

My favorite childhood memories are of camping with my dad.  I remember learning how to pitch a tent and the musty smell of our sleeping bags, but my favorite memory is of roasting marshmallows over the fire. Now I’m a father and I can’t wait to start building these memories with my kids. Great Outdoors Colorado supports campgrounds in state parks and open spaces throughout Colorado. We have so many great choices for weekend camping trips with our kids — nice, clean campgrounds we can enjoy after hikes nearby. This is really what it means to be a Coloradan!
