River rafting.


The Rocky Mountains are our playground. Each day, our campers head out to explore the amazing Colorado Rockies on hikes, backpacks, horseback rides and much more. Our activities are the vehicle for teaching children the values and ideals necessary to establish their path towards becoming thriving young adults.

How campers sign up for activities

We are committed to our FunPlus® philosophy where campers have a say and input into their experience. Campers use our free-choice sign-up system to request activities they like on Orientation Day and each Sunday after. They explore the weekly offerings and communicate their preferences to their counselors, preparing them for the week's activities. If campers want to try something new or change their choices, they can sign up for different activities for the following week. Campers can work toward earning a patch in specific areas and are encouraged to stretch their comfort zones and sign up for out-of-camp activities.
