Once campers reach middle school, they’re ready for bigger challenges. Ready for a weeklong expedition that tests their problem-solving skills and adventuring savvy. Ready to build solid technical know-how in sports ranging from rock climbing and mountain biking to canoeing and kayaking—whether they’re total beginners or seasoned experts. In short, they’re ready for Colorado Mountain Camp’s 7th – 8th-grade program.
Led by our inspiring, experienced staff, campers spend several days on site building proficiency in our core adventure sports before venturing out on a five-day expedition. Fun and deeply satisfying, this off-site expedition gives campers tougher conditions to navigate and more say in how to tackle them, helping them learn lasting skills in decision making and conflict resolution.
Throughout their two-week session, campers also take part in a formal service project—an eye-opening exercise in leaving their environment better than they found it—and try a host of exciting outdoor activities that includes archery, tree climbing and fly fishing. They also find plenty of time for the games, traditions and bonding experiences that only happen at overnight camp, leaving them with lifelong memories and character-shaping confidence.

Growing up at summer camp transformed my life. I have a degree in Outdoor Recreation, Leadership, and Management from Northern Michigan University, and I have worked for the past four years as the Director of SpringHill’s Overnight Camp Teen Program. My desire is to provide quality outdoor experiences that will transform campers’ lives. I believe that the outdoors provides an excellent platform for learning, growing, and seeing what you are made of. Outdoor adventure is much more than the trails, rocks, or water. When you unplug from the barrage of media constantly telling you who to be, and you begin to master skills that the outdoors can teach, I believe you’ll become stronger, more confident, and embrace your true self. Camp provides an escape and a chance to slow down and reflect on who you want to become. In my past 10 years of working with teenagers, I have discovered that everyone deeply desires to be known, know others, and a place to belong. Colorado Mountain Camp can be that place. Can’t wait to see you there!
