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 by Outdoor Specialists. 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 and team experiences and focus on Outdoor Living Skills (OLS) and crafts, including archer, building shelters, whittling, safety, First Aid and survival.

EXCURSIONS

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. Excursions in July and August feature high-country Indian Peak Wilderness hike options.

CAMPFIRE EVENINGS

Only Mountaineers and CITs 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 up your mountaineer at our new bust stop at 8:30pm.

CAMPOUT POSSIBILITIES

In order for the possibility for optional Campouts to be offered during the summer of 2022, all Mountaineers need to be fully vaccinated against Covid.

GROUPS

Groups are arranged in advance by school grade level. When indicated on the registration form, old friends who are close in school grade level are placed together. To establish consistent groups from the beginning to the end of each week, there cannot be changes.

GROUP COUNSELORS

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 Outdoor Specialist and other Activity Instructors. 

 

“BUS PODS”

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".

ACTIVITY AREAS

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-19 Protocols page.

 

ACTIVITY INSTRUCTORS

The Mountaineers Program has its own Outdoor Specialist Director. Every other activity has its own specialized instructor or team of instructors who present safe, supervised, and progressive instruction in a fun and supportive atmosphere.

CAMP SPIRIT

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!

OTHER ACTIVITIES

When there is time for other camp activities, the Mountaineers will get a chance to try some of the favorites.

Please see our updated FAQ for information on what campers should bring every day and also for Excursions.

“We now know what a truly wonderful camp we have in our very own backyard! My daughter loved your camp and is looking forward to more mountainboarding this summer! When I came up to visit on the last day of camp, I was astonished at the beautiful setting, the expansive area, the deep charming character of your camp! Thanks again, we are truly honored to spend time there.”
