Colorado Mountain Camp Tours for Future Campers

Are you considering overnight camp for 2018 or beyond? Help alleviate any butterflies you or your child might have by seeing the camp and campers in action, touring our facilities, and asking our staff questions in person this summer.  We know overnight camp is an investment and an emotional decision, so it’s important to do your research.  Colorado Mountain Camp is about the lasting impact that comes when all kids—whatever their ability or confidence level—learn to face new challenges, push beyond their comfort zones and make sound, independent decisions. Tours will be at our Mt. Evans location, our camp for entering 1st-6th graders in Evergreen, Colorado and Windy Peak location, our camp for entering 7th – 11th graders in Bailey, Colorado.

Our staff will walk you through all of our on-site facilities including the cabins, dining halls, outside recreation areas, and more, and we will have a question and answer session where you will meet our Director and can ask all of the questions you might have, no matter how big or small.  While we will not be participating in any camp activities during the tour, you’ll see some campers in action.
