About the event

We're celebrating the end of the school year with La Luz Micro Middle School by camping out inside Bishop Castle, with special permission from the Bishop Family. Always Choose Adventures has been working with La Luz Micro Middle School as part of our ReWild Your Child Program this 2023-2024 school year. ACA has provided 8 months of adventure based clinics with La Luz Micro Middle School and we're excited to celebrate the end of the school year with this special event! 

La Luz Micro is a Denver micro-school with a focus on experiential learning, relationship building and character development.  Learning can happen anywhere and everywhere.  It doesn't and shouldn't have to be confined to a building and four walls.  La Luz knows that community members are excited to be part of your learning experience.  We believe that this is the future of education! 

We are raising funds to provide meals, shoes, gear and transportation for this event. Please donate on our website

Please note: Bishops Castle is a work in progress, meaning there’s still metal being fabricated, tools and potentially dangerous materials outside the castle, for this reason.
