6th Grade Team

Camp Timberline2

Camp Timberline is a program that draws students closer and pushes the boundaries of their comfort zones. Every year, Bolts MS 6th grade team buses the 6th grade students up near Estes Park for an over night stay at Camp Timberline. Students stay in dorms, eat meals prepared by on site staff and sit around a night campfire. Stations include zip lining and ropes courses.

Horsetooth Rock Hike

Nearing the last day of school, it is tradition that the 6th graders take a field trip to Horsetooth Mountain Open Space for a hike to the landmark Horsetooth Rock. Students hike the moderate grade 2.2-mile trail to the base of the rock. They take a break and eat lunch just short of reaching the rock. Students that want to hike to the summit of the rock are put into small groups and are escourted to the top of the rock for a view of the front range from Wyoming border to Denver.
