Our Facilities Have it all

Cabins
Dining Hall
Clinic
Bathrooms
Trading Post
Gazebo

Clean and comfortable, our cabins are campers’ home sweet homes during their stay. We have 13 cabins located along “Cabin Row” that can accommodate anywhere from 10 to 24 campers, grouped by age. Cabins are single sex, staff supervised (with a camper to staff ratio of 6:1) and outfitted with bunk beds, storage space, heating and air conditioning, fire alarms and emergency intercoms. Campers make their beds every morning and do regular chores to keep their cabins neat and cozy.

Much more than just a place to eat, our air-conditioned, two-level dining hall is a place where the whole camp gathers to visit outside their cabin groups, 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 any 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.

While some cabins have single toilets (usually reserved for our younger campers), all campers are an easy walk from our central shared bathhouse building, which has separate facilities for boys and girls, plenty of sinks, toilets and private showers.

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), the Trading Post is Colorado Mountain Camp’s one-stop shop. Parents can set up a store account with a pre-set spending limit for campers to use throughout their stay. Any money not spent at the Trading Post by the end of the camp session will be contributed to the Avid4 Adventure scholarship fund. Please see our Trading Post FAQs for more details.

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

Nelson Pond

    On site at Windy Peak and easy to navigate, Nelson Pond is a perfect place to teach campers the basics of kayaking, canoeing and stand up paddleboarding, and to practice fly-fishing.
