WXPN presents…

World Cafe Summer Camp – Colorado Adventures

Departing August 4 – 10, 2024

As past travelers are aware, the music sessions do not get booked until much closer to departure and long after booking is required. In addition to a great Graham Nash performance on the first night, we anticipate recording several artists in Denver and in Ft Collins. We’ve also scheduled a visit and tour of the new state of the art Vinyl Record pressing plant principally owned by WXPN artist Dave Rawlins. And on our last full day of the trip, we will be traveling to Red Rocks to visit and explore arguably the most beautiful concert venue in the country. While there, we will be treated to sit in on the sound check with that night’s performers, Mt Joy.

The overall activity level of this tour is a level 3. This means you’re an on-the-go traveler. You don’t want to miss a thing, so walking and standing for longer periods of time (2-3 hours) isn’t a big deal. A moderately paced two-and-a-half-hour walking tour, covering several miles, hills, and uneven surfaces, is no problem for you. Walking four miles over the course of a day is very doable, as is climbing into and out of various modes of transportation (tuk-tuk, cable car, zodiac, etc.). You can climb three flights of stairs easily and handle altitudes between 6,000 and 9,000 feet. Expect some longer days with early mornings or late nights balanced with free time to recharge or set out on your own adventure. This level is not a fit for travelers who require mobility assistance devices.

If you require any special assistance while on tour, please make us aware at time of reservation so the necessary request form can be sent to your attention.
