For this week, campers will be given the opportunity to choose from a variety of activities including rock rappelling, soccer, Frisbee golf, field hockey, tie-dye, and bead making. Each day is filled with activities including morning hikes, Animal Survival (a simulation game where kids become an animal), worship at the gold mine or in the chapel, and an afternoon bible time. Camp pastors are chosen from area Mennonite churches and develop work with campers as they begin making decisions on their own faith development. Campers will also go on an overnight campout with their cabin mates and enjoy s'mores in the Rocky Mountain air. In years past we have even been known to have a snowball toss or two even this late in the summer.

CAMPER GRADE – The grades for camps listed represent the grade campers will be going into for the next school year. To offer campers and families more options when selecting a week of camp, we have expanded the camp sessions to include an age range to permit campers a grade above or below the listed grade level to attend. Select the camp session that best fits your needs.
SUMMER STAFF - Our summer staff are typically college-aged students from Mennonite Colleges and Universities. All staff are part of a week of orientation in which skills and procedures are reviewed in caring and serving campers of all ages. Training is focused on the well-being of all campers to ensure their physical and emotional safety while at camp. All hike leaders receive Wilderness First Aid training and climbing supervisors and instructors (for rock climbing/rappelling activities) take part in a two day training course led by a certified instructor.
SCHOLARSHIPS - Scholarship Funds are available to help cover registration and coordinated transportation fees from Kansas and Colorado Springs. Please contact the Executive Director, Corbin Graber, by phone (719-687-9506) or email (email@example.com).
PAYMENTS – Payment options available though online registration include payment in full, $50 non-refundable deposit w/ remaining balance due at camp, or $50 non-refundable deposit and remaining balance in monthly installments. We accept cash, checks or credit cards.
