Colorado Parks and Wildlife is offering families a chance to get up in the mountains, learn outdoor skills and have fun during a free weekend getaway they will never forget.

Register now for the annual CPW Southeast Region Outdoor Adventure Weekend, July 28-30 at a private ranch near Victor in Teller County.

A lucky 50 children and their families will learn about firearms safety, hunting, outdoor survival and more. Fewer than half the available slots remain according to CPW.

Check in begins 10:00 a.m., Friday, July 28, and the weekend events conclude Sunday afternoon.

Sessions will include: firearms safety, outdoor survival, hunting different types of big game, small game and waterfowl, as well as opportunities to shoot archery, muzzleloaders, shotguns and rifles. Participants may take the Hunter Safety Education test at the end of the event to obtain their Hunter Safety certification.

"It's a great way for families to complete their hunter education and learn a lot about being in the outdoors," said Tracy Predmore, CPW Southeast Region education coordinator. "The weekend is designed for kids, but we want the whole family to participate."

This event has been developed for adults and children 10 and older. All children must be accompanied by an adult. Children under 10 may attend as part of a family, but may not be able to participate in some of the activities. 

Meals will be provided. Families must bring their own camping gear and plan to stay overnight at the property.
