Environmental Institute for Stewardship & Leadership

The Environmental Institute

Combining field investigations and adventure education, Environmental Institute programs take students outside to connect with real-world scientific studies in a cooperative learning environment. We believe in a future where all members of our community have the skills, knowledge, and passions to engage with environmental science in a positive way.

Gear Up!

Gear Up! is EUREKA!'s mountain biking program that blends the science of biking with leadership skills and character development. Throughout the Fall, we offer many no-school-day programs for students of all ages as well as after school biking programs at specific schools.

Check out some of our previous overnight programs!


EUREKA! requires immunization records for all student campers. If your child attends school in Colorado, you do not need to upload records. If your student does not attend school in Colorado, or is homeschooled, you must upload immunization records in order to register.

EUREKA! accepts medical exemptions for immunizations (MMR, Tetanus, Polio, Hep A/B) with a doctor's note. Please submit this completed form to camps@eurekasciencemusem.org.

Required Student Forms

EUREKA! also requires EI participants of overnight trips to submit additional medical and safety forms:

Forms must be submitted at least 14 days prior to the first day of an overnight camp and can be emailed to camps@eurekasciencemuseum.org or brought to the museum. We will send a general packing list and basic course policies to all registered students so they will be fully prepared for their course.
