Our Facilities Have it all

Bunkhouses
Dining Hall
Clinic
Bathrooms
Trading Post
Ampitheater
Activity Barn

Clean and comfortable, our bunkhouses are campers’ home sweet homes during their stay. These five dorm-style dwellings are single sex, staff supervised and grouped by program level. Each is outfitted with bunk beds, storage space, heating and air conditioning, fire alarms, emergency intercoms and indoor bathrooms and showers.

Much more than just a place to eat, our air-conditioned, dining hall (with a deck!) is a place where the whole camp gathers to visit, sing songs, listen to announcements and fuel up for the day’s adventures. We serve three healthy, hearty, family-style meals every day (plus have plenty of healthy snacks for extra energy between mealtimes) and can accommodate most allergies or dietary restrictions.

Our on-site clinic is staffed with professional nurses and equipped to handle most medical situations that arise at camp. Complete with private rooms and bathrooms, our clinic is open 24 hours a day to treat cuts, bruises, stomachaches and homesickness, or just to provide a quiet place for campers to regroup. We also keep camper medications locked up in the clinic to be administered by nurses as directed.

All bunkhouses at Mt. Evans have indoor bathrooms with private showers for our campers. They’re also an easy walk from our central shared bathhouse building, which has separate facilities for boys and girls with plenty of sinks, toilets and private showers.

The Trading Post is Colorado Mountain Camp’s general store.  It is housed in a very cool 19th-century building and stocked with healthy snacks, Avid4 Adventure merchandise, plus anything kids might have forgotten at home (cameras, toothbrushes, stationery, journals). Parents can set up an account with a pre-set spending limit for campers to use throughout their stay.  Please see our Trading Post FAQs for more details.

One of our favorite camp meeting areas, the amphitheater hosts our opening and closing ceremonies, weekly barbecues, live concerts, skit nights and campfires.

Located in a beautiful 19th-century barn, this area is where campers participate in arts and crafts, nature studies, orienteering and lots more.

Trails

    Mt. Evans is covered in miles of trails, ideal for hiking, biking and learning.

Jackson Pond

    On site at Mt. Evans and easy to navigate, Jackson Pond is a perfect place to teach younger campers the basics of kayaking, canoeing and stand up paddleboarding, and to let our 4th – 5th graders practice their fly-fishing. It’s also where campers of all ages enjoy logrolling, working both independently and together to stay upright on a floating log—and have a blast falling off.

Recreation Area

  • Recreation Area

    Designed to give kids a low-key place to gather after full days of adventuring, our recreation area gets campers of all ages together for activities like volleyball, gaga pit, soccer, kickball, Ultimate Frisbee, 9-square, slacklining, dance parties and more. It’s the perfect spot for unstructured downtime.

Archery & Slingshot Range

  • Archery & Slingshot Range

    Our archery and slingshot range is where younger campers hone their hand-eye coordination with slingshots, while those in 4th and 5th grades hit the mark with bows and arrows.

Overnight Camp Site

  • Overnight Camp Site

    Our youngest campers trek to this on-site campground for their one-night expedition. While it’s only located 1 mile away from our main facilities, it has a remote, backcountry feel for an authentic campout experience.
