THE CAMP DAY
Mountaineers have the chance to participate in our whole array of CAMP ACTIVITIES, as well as special adventures designed especially for these older campers. Activity times are longer than in the past to allow for a more in-depth experience for each camper. Each activity time is now 1 hour and 15 minutes, allowing for 2 ½ hour intensives. Mountaineers will have the time to really get into their nature experiences and focus on outdoor and woods living skills and crafts, including Archery.
Each week includes a half-day or full-day excursion open only to Mountaineers to explore the local mountains with peers and play in a stream or lake. This excursion features high-country hike options.
Only Mountaineers may stay later on Thursdays for a special activity time, campfire dinner, and evening program. This is included as part of the Mountaineers program. You will pick them up at the Foothills Community Park at 8:45pm. If your Mountaineer is not staying for the Campfire Evening, please plan to come to the Ranch to pick them up.
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. To establish consistent groups from the beginning to the end of each week, there cannot be changes.
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.
Mountaineer groups will ride with another group of Mountaineers on their bus. These bus groups of campers form a “Bus Pod” for each week.
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.
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!
When there is time for other Camp Activities, the Mountaineers will get a chance to try some of the favorites: ACTIVITIES PAGE
