UpaDowna provides a no-excuse way for individuals, families and the community to try a new, healthy activity outside in nature! We help combat things like depression, low self-esteem, obesity, diabetes and more! With location, education and equipment covered, participants can focus on just having fun!


We believe that everyone can grow from the physical and mental benefits that come from enjoying healthy outdoor activities. Our programs are open to ALL individuals in the Colorado Springs community. We provide all of the knowledge, gear and inspiration needed to enjoy all of the outdoor recreation opportunities that the Springs offers, and have never turned anyone away from participating.


Enclosed storage for our equipment — 800 square feet of on-site lockable space.
