Scout Experiences

Join us for a fun-filled, hands-on, pioneer experience! Our programs are run outside in a farm-like setting.

Please contact our education department for more information and to schedule your scout outing.

Prices starting at $100 for 20 scouts and 2 adults.

Birthday Parties

Four Mile Historic Park is the perfect spot for your child’s birthday party! Located in the heart of the city, our 12-acre site provides a rustic landscape where children can travel back in time to Colorado in the 1800s. A costumed Four Mile Historic Park staff member leads the children through their chosen activity and parents are encouraged to join in on the fun. Prices starting at $200 for 20 participants.

Tiny Trails

Our Tiny Trails program offers a group experience for toddlers and their parents or caregivers, promotes early learning development, and provides a strong foundation for your child’s critical first years.

We’re currently taking a break for the winter (the park is icy!) Join us again in the spring from 10:00 to 10:45 a.m. for history, culture, and nature-centered activities that achieve multiple learning and development skills.
