July 6th and August 3rd

Final Saturday

Final Saturday is a wonderful time to get a snapshot of your camper’s summer playground and meet many of their fellow campers and counselors.


Please bring a water bottle, rain gear, walking shoes (closed-toe), a hat, and sunscreen. While we provide a BBQ lunch on Saturday for all visitors, you may bring a picnic lunch to share with your camper(s). Please enjoy your time at camp with your camper, and do not take them off the property. We ask that your camper not use cell phones/social media. Pets are not allowed, thank you!

Chapel (at LOP, GTE, and BTE) and BBQ Lunch

Chapel begins promptly at 11:00 am for friends and family. You may begin arriving as early as 9:45 am and we suggest no later than 10:40 am to allow for time to walk to the Chapel. Please, do not arrive prior to 9:45 am. During Final Chapel, campers share a “What Camp Means to Me” message and there are many songs and musical performances, including Choir. Campers and staff wear their kerchief and appropriate clothing (Chapel attire) – we welcome you to do the same! BBQ Lunch will be served in Chipeta & Ski Hi Dining Halls at LOP and at BTE and GTE from 11:45 am to 1:30 pm.

Recognition Receptions

During Recognition Receptions, you will have the opportunity to meet your camper’s counselors. Counselors will give a brief overview of their program area, each unit will celebrate the accomplishments of the summer, including earning a patch or milestone in a program area, participating in a certain activity, or accomplishing a personal goal. At the closing of the reception, we will hold our Citizenship Recognition ceremonies.
