THE NOSTALGIA OF SUMMER CAMP IS REAL. Memories of cabin sleepovers, fireside stories, and guided treks beneath steep pines or thrilling white-water rafting trips may come to mind. The passionate crew over at Avid4 Adventure (Avid4.com) is bringing back the best of camp while adding in a streak of outdoor adventure. The company, founded in 2003 right here in Boulder, has grown into one of the country’s leading summer camps for kids with current programs across Oregon, California and Colorado. Their immersive nature experiences, guided by certified educators and adventurers, include day and overnight excursions and are available to Pre K through 12th graders. By engaging them in outdoor activities like kayaking, mountain biking, rock-climbing, and standup paddle-boarding, campers are empowered through confidence-building practices. Professional instructors focus on helping camp attendees assess potential risks in the outdoors with a nurturing approach, so instead of rule-setting, they invite the kids to examine their environment, both on land and water, to observe the dangers or obstacles related to the sport, and then letting them decide for themselves if they want to try it. “More often than not, kids that are terrified of water sports, for example, will be loving it by the end of their stay,” shares Andrea Stutesman, the marketing supervisor at Avid4. Getting young adolescents off of their phones is at best a power struggle, but at Avid4 there is a clear draw to nature over devices. Between the epic campouts, thrill-seeking and technical sports offered, and memorable relationships forged at their Day and Overnight Camps, there seems to be a place for all types of learners and adventurers. The company was recently named a Certified B Corp (one of only two certified summer camps in the world) emphasizing their continued commitment towards social and environmental justice through Leave No Trace practices while also building a positive and philanthropic community of employees and campers. They also offer a scholarship program to kids whose families’ finances may be a barrier to participation. Their rigorous attention around COVID-19 safety meant closely monitoring campers’ wellness and keeping groups smaller than normal. This allowed them to successfully host over 8,500 kids with the help of more than 250 staff and no known cases of the virus with any of the campers. As summer nears the corner, Avid4 Adventure will be expanding their Expedition Camps in the California Bay Area, Portland, and Colorado, which will provide expertise to campers regarding river access and gear for a pro experience out in the wild. Nature is calling!

Word on the Street "Both of my kids were Avid4 Adventure campers. My daughter, now 20, is an avid mountain biker, skier, backpacker, and overall adventurer and lover of the outdoors. Avid4 set the foundation for that, and even better is that I get to do all of those things with her." —Allison O'Brien "My 6-year-old did the explorer camp in Denver, and she had an amazing time. She was a little unsure about the whole experience and has often not wanted to try new things, however, she dove into this camp and had the best time. Her confidence level soared, especially with everything she can do on her own (and even show us now too)!" —Stacy Miller

Combating Food Waste, Locally WE CONNECTED WITH ECO-CYCLE AND

ARTICLE EMILY O'BRIEN

COMMUNITY FOOD SHARE TO LEARN MORE ABOUT REDUCING FOOD WASTE AT HOME.

DID YOU KNOW THE AVERAGE AMERICAN FAMILY OF FOUR THROWS OUT $1,600 A YEAR IN PRODUCE? While America might be one of the most technically and economically advanced cultures in the world, we also have the highest waste on the planet—1.3 billion tons of food wasted or lost annually. Money aside, that’s an incredible amount of waste, both physically and energetically. Kate Christian, corporate sustainability manager at Eco-Cycle, says, “While the food waste movement across America is gaining momentum, it needs to pick up speed to help tackle one of the globe’s most pressing problems: climate change. In fact, the resources used to produce food that is eventually lost or wasted account for approximately 4.4 gigatons of greenhouse gas emissions annually, making food loss and waste the world’s third-largest GHG emitter.” Additionally, food is the largest component taking up space in landfills. It takes up 22% of municipal solid waste. Food waste has gotten increasingly worse over the past several decades; however, the amount of food waste being generated in the United States has recently stopped increasing, after rising by 11.9% since 2010. While that is certainly good news, we have a long way to go to reach a 50% reduction by 2030. Christian says, “We aren’t growing our food anymore, few of us have shook the hand of our farmer, and cheap, available food has created behaviors that do not place high value on utilizing what is purchased. As a result, the issue of wasted food is simply not on the radar of many Americans, even those who consider themselves environment- or cost-conscious.”

“Our goal is to distribute 100% of the food that is donated to us to people in need. But sometimes, food donations come to us with some misfits: bread is stale, spinach is past its prime, or potatoes have grown a few too many ‘eyes.’ Instead of sending these inedible food scraps to compost or the landfill, we have arrangements with local livestock farmers and animal sanctuaries to use it as animal feed,” says Dana Van Daele, manager of food resources and compliance at Community Food Share. Any food that is unfit for both human and animal consumption is composted.

Moving to Compass last year was a game changer, both personally and professionally. A simple invitation led to a conversation that shifted my entire career. It added the missing piece I had been searching for; my place in the world. Let me help you find yours! ~ Kiki

ARTICLE BRIANNA BLAIR | PHOTOGRAPHY ALEXANDRÉ HOOSON

UNPRECEDENTED TIMES CALL FOR UNPRECEDENTED PEOPLE. And unprecedented people take unprecedented action. For Dr. Amie Meditz, her actions were rooted in her duty as a physician and her compassion as a human. COVID-19 has rocked the entire world for over a year. All that humankind knew was turned upside down. Nations were forced to pause, business to close and people to isolate. Dr. Meditz is an Infectious Diseases physician at Boulder Community Health and the first BCH recipient of the COVID-19 vaccine. She knew at a young age that she was destined for the medical field. At 13-years-old, a physician showed her that she could combine her unique love of science with the power of compassion and connectivity to make a difference in peoples’ lives and health. After graduating from medical school in 1999, the skills she learned and the compassion she possessed were given to the HIV epidemic sweeping the U.S.

A D VA N C E M E N T S While tragedy can outweigh success, it’s important to highlight the advancements we have made in modern day medicine in light of SARS-CoV-2. Dr. Meditz recognizes five major advancements over this past year that provide hope for the future. 01 Scientists quickly cracked the genetic code of the virus, and that vital information was shared widely so that testing techniques and vaccines could be developed in countries across the world. 02 There was intense research that led to a better understanding of how the virus is transmitted and how it affects our bodies. 03 The extensive collaboration between scientists and medical centers brought many of these advancements to patients much more rapidly than originally expected. 04 Universal use of masks was unprecedented in the U.S., and mask mandates were met with some resistance. Now, robust studies show that wearing masks has been a key tool in slowing the spread of the virus. 05 The greatest accomplishment of all has been the development of multiple safe and effective vaccines thanks to scientists, the financial support of the U.S. government, and tens of thousands of study participants.

VA C C I N E C L I N I C BOULDER COMMUNITY HEALTH VACCINE CLINIC With the rollout of multiple vaccines comes the challenge of distribution. Phases of distribution can only act as a guideline, it is up to hospitals and clinics to create a system. Andilyn Brockert is a young mother and one of the masterminds behind the Boulder Community Health Vaccine Clinic at the Della Cava Family Medical Pavilion in Boulder. Along with coworker, Charlie Jones, Brockert and Jones manage the vaccine clinic and have been able to vaccinate 850 to 1,000 patients a day and are currently working towards 1,500 patients. “We started off very small, with 100-200 patients per day. We were nervous about making sure we were giving the best experience possible to our community,” Brockert says. “Just like it takes a village to raise a child, it took an amazing collaborative team to build a successful vaccination clinic, especially for such an important milestone in history!” The clinic is an experience unlike any other, tailoring to the age of patients by playing into their generation with music from Frank Sinatra, then moving to Stevie Nicks and so on. “Once the vaccine is administered, we send them to our “Relaxation Station” to listen to some music while we monitor them for any immediate side effects. Then off they go with a little more protection and bounce in their step,” Brockert says. “I have been amazed at the joy that all of these people bring to the clinic every day,” Jones says. “We often comment that it is the happiest place in town.” Amid the darkness, COVID-19 has brought to light new appreciation toward things we may have taken for granted before. “The appreciation for each other is the biggest positive I see, both worldwide and in our community,” Brockert says. “Here is to this next year being one of hope, comfort, healing, understanding, remembering and just enjoying all that we have.” Brockert encourages people to sign up for MyBCH, an online patient portal through BCH. This is the easiest way to be notified when you are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine and how you can schedule your appointment.

LOCALLY OWNED (CONTINUED)

FOR JON BANIS AND HIS WIFE ERIN, HOSPITALITY IS THE BUSINESS THEY KNOW; AND FOR THE LAST 11 OR SO YEARS, THEY’VE MADE A PARTNERSHIP OUT OF IT. Finding themselves working and falling in love in the halls of their restaurant, Japango, they’ve forged quite the name for themselves in the realm of contemporary Boulder dining. With Jon taking ownership in 2007, the Banises, now with their 10-month old baby, became the family behind Japango’s great success—success, they say, that wouldn’t be possible without their other family: their staff. Restaurants can sometimes be overlooked. They’re something people always assume will be around, but this last year notably changed that narrative as many Pearl Street staples closed their doors permanently. Likewise, great sushi is a rare find in landlocked states, but Jon and Erin have upended that stereotype, working hard to provide the highest quality of everything for their customers, from rare fish to rare whiskey. Japango’s 2013 remodel, which added their notably cool lounge and jellyfish aquarium, gave them the space they needed to expand. The restaurant’s whiskey collection, focusing on offering eclectic, unique bottles, once held the title of the largest Japanese whiskey collection in Colorado. With veteran alchemist Stanley behind the bar and sushi master Iwasan behind the glass counter, the creativity of what Japango has to offer is constantly in flux. New cocktails and specials are available every week, so it’s not uncommon to see these two (one a sensitive artist-type, the other a proper 67-year-old Japanese sushi master) bouncing ideas off each other, working together to create interesting pairings. The staff, the managers, the owners—everyone is a valuable partner in the restaurant’s success, everyone makes the Japango brand what it is. Even during the darkest times of last year, the Japango family still created a dining experience for people rather than becoming strictly transactional, which is commonplace now that ‘To-Go’ is the gold standard of safe dining. It’s the interaction with community, the social aspect of dining out and the escape of it all that people were craving, and what Japango was able to deliver. “We’re so grateful and proud of the last 10 years,” says the Banis duo. “The staff are the ones who have really made us successful. This year there’s been a question mark of what’s next and how we’re going to keep adapting. Once we get one thing figured out, it’s onto the next thing—what and where can we enhance? We say it with humility, but we’re proud of what we’ve created, of our staff, and of what we continue to evolve into."

SO H OT RIGHT N OW Wagyu seems to be the item on the docket this month. Stanley fat washed a 1792 Full-Proof Bourbon with Wagyu, a process which rounds out the “hotness” of such potent whiskey and creates a richer, more full bodied drink. Using this in an Old Fashioned, he adds lemongrass-banana infused maple syrup and the house yuzu skin-peppercorn bitters—excellent for pairing with Iwasan’s specialty Wagyu dishes.

The talit is a garment traditionally worn by men at prayer, and adopted by women in the last 40+ years. The garment itself can be any fabric, color, etc. - though the traditional ones were white with black or blue stripes. What makes it a talit are the fringes on the four corners that are wrapped and tied in a special way to remind us of God’s commandments.

PARTING THOUGHTS

“WHEN LIFE AROUND THE GLOBE RETURNS TO NORMAL, OUR WORLD CANNOT RETURN TO BUSINESS-AS-USUAL.” —Earth Day Network, the organizing body for Earth Day Worldwide

Each year—since the first Earth Day April 22, 1970—marks the anniversary of what many consider the birth of the modern environmental movement. The idea came to Earth Day founder Gaylord Nelson, then a U.S. Senator from Wisconsin, after witnessing the ravages of the 1969 massive oil spill in Santa Barbara, California. The UN General Assembly designated April 22 as International Mother Earth Day—where people unite to appreciate and respect earth’s environment. The concerns then were: pollution, ecology and mass transportation. The concerns today are: climate change, species loss, pandemics and massive natural disasters that might define the future—unless we do something now. In Boulder, we’re lucky to be part of a community that valued environmental stewardship long before there was a holiday to celebrate it. Typical ways of observing Earth Day include: planting trees, growing gardens, picking up roadside trash, conducting various programs for recycling and conservation. Starting with the Biden administration convening a global climate summit with world leaders on Earth Day. EARTHDAY.ORG will host a multi-hour, multi-channel live streamed digital event featuring artists, musicians and celebrities, alongside climate leaders, grassroots activists, nonprofit innovators, thought and industry leaders. The event begins at noon ET and will consist of “workshops, panel discussions, roundtables, films, and special performances” focusing on “climate and environmental literacy, reforestation efforts, regenerative agriculture, equity and environmental justice, citizen science, cleanups, and beyond.” Its 2021 theme, Restore Our Earth, focuses on natural processes, emerging green technologies and innovative thinking to restore the world’s ecosystems.
