THE CAMP DAY
Explorers participate in our whole array of camp activities. Within the course of each week, Explorers have a solid introduction and the opportunity to participate in each activity. Activity times of 1 hour and 15 minutes are longer than in the past and may occasionally combine for a 2 ½ hour duration.
Activities are spread out around Main Camp and separated by a 1–5 minute walk on trails through meadows and forest. Equipment is regularly checked for safety, sanitized between groups, and supply inventories are continually restocked. For more details about our COVID safety precautions, please visit our COVID Info page.
Groups are arranged in advance by age and length of enrollment for as much continuity as possible within the group week to week. When indicated on the registration form, old friends are placed together. Those coming looking for new friends are grouped together for more opportunities to meet others. In order to establish consistent groups from the start of each week, children cannot change from one group to another.
Each group has its own experienced adult counselor familiar with age-specific guidance and group dynamics, who is always with the group, working closely with each child, guiding, supervising, participating and assisting the activity instructors.
Explorer groups of 10 will ride with another group of 10 Explorers on their bus. These bus groups of 20 campers form a “Bus Pod” for each week.
Each activity has its own specialized instructor or team of instructors who present safe, supervised and progressive instruction in a fun and supportive atmosphere.
Parents who went to camp as children may recognize the Colorado Mountain Ranch as a traditional summer camp community, with the same spirit and many of the same activities they remember. Camp is always an adventure!
Please see our updated 2021 FAQs for information on what to bring every day.
SUPPORT CHILDREN WHO WOULD NOT OTHERWISE EXPERIENCE CAMP
As a career educator, I have been so impressed with the quality of programs offered at Colorado Mountain Ranch. The boys came home full of joy, wonder, music and friendship last summer. I couldn’t have asked for a greater blessing. They are still talking about their amazing experiences with you last year, singing your campfire songs and generally glowing with love for your program. Thank you so much for the opportunity!
“When I think about Colorado Mountain Ranch I thought it was a good thing that I went there. I did many things like archery, horse back riding, gymnastics, made new friends, we went swimming, spent the night, participated in the flag raising ceremony, played games after lunch and shopped at the store. I would like to go back next year. One day I’d like to be a C.I.T. You have to be 13. Next year I will be 11. At CMR I did things I never knew I could. I learned that I was strong, smarter than I thought, and that I was good at making friends.”
