Each field trip combines the history of Fort Vasquez with authentic hands-on experiences, perfect for school groups, scout troops, or clubs of any kind. Each tour can be tailored to the needs of your students or scouts. Making tortillas, throwing a hatchet and starting a fire with flint and steel are just some of the offerings! Bring a sack lunch and enjoy the historic fort grounds for a picnic, weather permitting.

All of our school programs align with Colorado Academic Standards. Please ask for a list of standards addressed by our school tours by emailing Bill at
