Summer activities in Basalt

Dear Editor:

Basalt Recreation has new and exciting classes now available for you this season.

We have a great lineup of art classes to inspire creativity in your child. Paint your own April showers umbrella or build a kite and decorate it. D.D. Gerdin is back with her awesome beading classes.

We are offering a special beading series for teens and adults to learn the basics to apply to any design plus some great children’s beading classes. This summer we have added new nature exploration classes to help your child understand our magical world. We are even offering adults an opportunity to take a walk back in time and explore the powerful geological forces that have shaped our awesome valley.

Your child can learn to climb with our Climbing Adventure Series or learn all about sailing with the Summer Sailing Program. Learn the fine art of fly fishing with Taylor Creek Fly Shop’s two-day fishing camp. Plus we are offering sport camps in basketball, lacrosse, and soccer. Learn more about our brochure online at or pick one up at Basalt Town Hall. Check out our activities before you plan anything else this summer!
