The Colorado Outdoor Learning School began in 2014 out of an opportunity provided for outdoor education experiences in the Four Corners when Camp Redcloud went out of business. Camp Redcloud in Lake City, CO had been running the preeminant experiental learning program in the four corners for the past 20 years. The Colorado Outdoor Learing School was formed in partnership with Cross Bar X Youth Ranch and Tyler and Beth Treadway, the former Directors of the Outdoor Education program at Camp Redcloud.
The Colorado Outdoor Learning School is an educational 501 C 3 non profit and shares a facility with Cross Bar X Youth Ranch, a faith based 501 C 3 non profit.
Cross Bar X Youth Ranch has been providing high quality summer camps and youth activities at our 150 acre facility in Durango, CO since 1977. The primary purpose of CBX is to provide high quality, yet affordable summer camps and youth activities for socially and economically disadvantaged families.
