Mountain Summer Camp:
What’s Camp All About?
This camp is designed to help outdoor enthusiasts acquire the tools they need to become comfortable, confident, and safe in a variety of outdoor activities and situations. We’ll combine physical skills (mountain biking, flat water canoeing and kayaking, and a high ropes course) with knowledge (mountain ecology, wildlife biology, survival skills) and practice (forest management, fire mitigation, flood recovery and conservation ethics). Our goal is to create a conscientious mountain steward ready for adventure!
What Do We Do at Camp?
Mountain biking, canoeing, kayaking, high ropes course, Alpine Day at Rocky Mountain National Park, teambuilding, mountain games, swimming, archery, primitive skills, wildlife identification, campfire, night hike, and a chance to help Cal-Wood with a community service project
This camp is for:
12-14 year old tent sleepers, divers, bikers, athletic types, Earth stewards, altruists, adrenaline seekers, naturalists, Jr. Rangers, leaders, outdoor lovers
This camp is based at our historic Mica Mine Camp, a scenic 2.5 mile hike from the parking lot to a once operational mica mine. Our campsite includes base camp tents that house 3-4 campers each, both male and female latrines, daily water and food drops from our lodge, a large kitchen/storage tent, and a fire pit. Campers are supplied with an extra sleeping bag, sleeping pad and storage bin. Camp has radio contact with the main lodge; however, there is no electricity or running water at the camp site. Campers will have an opportunity to shower at the lodge during the camp session.
