Our Guiding Principles
Our guiding principles allow us to offer the best quality programs for our community and cultivate happiness within our children.
Time in Nature
Sunshine is the real hero!
We all feel better after some time outdoors. This is why, in everything we do, we find ways to be outside, climb trees, play in the river and be with friends among the beautiful Colorado sunshine.
Families need a strong community to raise brave, soulful, independent and confident children. We are honored to be a part of that community by providing customized curriculum for our Riders.
Safety + Consistent Support =
Happy Kids = Happy Families!
We put a high value on safety training and consistency in all that we do because we understand the importance when it comes to your family.
The Durango Way.
Kids need to be kids these days. With all the options, keeping it simple yet customized, fun and consistent, kids can explore who they are and what they love. They need to experience reflection, stillness, time in play, and the surprise and adventure nature delivers. It brings inspiration. We share this with them in a safe, customized environment. It’s time to get them back outside and we help you do this.
" Vivienne has a natural way with kids. She has the ability to provide teaching lessons while taking field trips to the river or playing at a park. She is well respected with the kids because she provides just the right amount of discipline when it’s needed. The kid’s love spending the summer with Vivienne because every day she has a new activity planned for them, and they know that fun awaits. We highly recommend Vivienne as a person and her ability to provide a fun and safe environment for the kids."
