Post-Conference Outdoor Activities


The District of Colorado, in conjunction with FEDADVANTAGE, is hosting post conference team building activities.  FEDADVANTAGE is sponsoring these activities, so there will be no or little cost to participants.  At this point we are trying to determine interest so we can properly prepare and fund the activities.   You can create a team to participate in these activities, or just express your individual interest. These physical activities range from difficult to easy.  Please see the descriptions noted below for the difficulty of any one activity.  For all of these activities, necessary equipment will be provided, but you will need to make sure you have the right shoes and layers of clothing/jackets/backpacks/sunscreen/sunglasses/snacks and ability to carry your own water. 

If you or your team are interested in any of the listed activities, please complete the response form at the end of this page.


14er Mountain

Climb a 14er! 

This will be the most difficult of all post conference activities.  Colorado is home to over 50 mountain peaks that rise over 14,000 foot in elevation.  For this activity, you will be driven to the base of Mt. Bierstadt, and be on a guided hike for 3.5 miles (2,850’ elevation gain) to reach the summit at 14,060 feet.  This is a 7 mile roundtrip hike.  Participants will leave the Marriott hotel at 5:00 am, beginning our hike around 6:30 am.   You should plan to hike for 6-8 hours.  Lunch will be provided, but each participant will carry their own.
