This is a fantastic combination of the typical summer at KIVU with the vision of the KIVU Gap Year as you will experience all of the adventures the Rockies hold and immerse yourself into the urban environment of downtown Denver. Your time will begin with a week in Breckenridge rafting the Arkansas River, hiking a 14,000 foot mountain, mountain biking world famous trails, playing at Breckenridge Mountain and relaxing in the beauty of a small mountain town.
While in Breckenridge, you will be taken through a leadership training course that will prepare you be the leaders no matter what kind of relationships you find yourself in. From there, you will head to Denver to see first hand what the KIVU Gap Year is like as you experience urban living with our Gap Year staff.
The dates are July 12-21 and the cost is $2,500*. You can either fly into Denver where the KIVU staff will meet you or drive to Breckenridge on your own. The price covers all lodging, food, leadership training and activities during your time both in Breckenridge and Denver. We are excited about adventuring in the mountains and the city with teenagers ages thirteen to eighteen.
A $300 deposit is required and full payment is due April 1st. The trip will be cancelled if we do not have ten campers signed up by that date.
*If you combine two of the adventures, you will receive a discount of $500. If you spend July with KIVU (by combining all three adventures), you will receive a total discount of $750.
The KIVU Gap Year is a cutting edge educational year shaping leaders for the next generation. Our students live with, learn from, and work alongside some of the most interesting leaders arond the world. With three co-horts, Denver, Philadelphia, and Washington D.C., the students spend their first semester domestically, and their second semester they travel the globe visiting places like Rwanda, Jordan, Israel, and Chile.
We are also working closely with our partners to provide internships that will amount to 900 hours by the end of the program.
