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 10 minutes allow for in-depth immersion.
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.
Groups are arranged in advance by grade levels and length of enrollment for as much continuity as possible within the group week to week. When indicated on the registration form, old friends at the same or close in school grade level are placed together. Those who coming looking for new friends are grouped together in pods from the start of each week.
Each group has its own experienced adult counselor who has a "kid-friendly" personality and is 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.
Each activity has its own specialized instructor or team of instructors who present safe, supervised and progressive instruction in a fun and supportive atmosphere.
Camper groups of 8-12 will ride on their bus with another group or groups also in their same program. Each bus may include up to three groups close in grade level and in the same program. These campers form a "Bus Pod".
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 carries on the tradition of adventure!
Please see our 2023 FAQ for information on what to bring every day.
"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!"
- Diana Warmly, Parent
“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.”
