Your Stay With Us


As there is no daily housekeeping service for cabins, we need your help in keeping your facility in order while you are here. Please refer to the list in the cabin for more details.


Please bring personal toiletries for your stay as soap & shampoo, etc. are not provided.


Sheets, towels, blankets, and pillows are provided in Emmental, Pleiades, Aspen apartment, Eagle’s Nest, Rocky Ridge, Sky-Hi-View, and Solitude Center. For Chalets, Rustic Cabins, and Park Ridge, linens are not included and can be rented with advanced notice of your stay.


Laundry facilities are not available for guests.


Our mountain water is very precious to us so please turn off sinks when brushing your teeth and minimize shower time. Any personal items should be taken back to your accommodation to allow space for other guests to use the facility and keep the bathhouses clean.


Please notify staff of anything that is broken or needs repair. Guests understand and take responsibility to follow and be respectful of the guidelines of the camp and will be responsible for the repair or replacement of camp property that is damaged/broken beyond what is considered normal use or is lost or missing.


Any item left behind by a guest will be kept for two weeks and then donated to charity.


Reception is limited at main camp. Ridge accommodations (Eagle’s Nest, Rocky Ridge, and Sky-Hi-View) can get limited service based on the cell carrier. A land line phone is available in the office lobby for guest use.


A Wi-Fi signal is in various locations around camp. Because of camp’s remote location and availability of high internet speeds, video or music streaming is not available.


Children should be supervised by an adult at all times. Church youth groups or school groups are required to have one adult supervisor for every five youth.


In consideration of others, noise should be kept to a minimum between 10:30 p.m. – 8:00 a.m. SIGNS – Anyone wishing to display signs on camp property must do so only with permission of the camp office.

Mountain Living


Each day offers a sample of the seasons: spring in the morning; summer in the afternoon; fall in the evening. Even winter can be represented in early June with snow! Rain and hail storms can also come at a moment’s notice just to keep things interesting. Being prepared with appropriate clothing is the key to enjoying the variety of weather the Rocky Mountains offer!


Camp’s elevation is 9,620 feet so it is important for campers and guests to take time to adjust to the high altitude. About one in four visitors to Colorado suffer from acute mountain sickness, the mildest form of altitude illness. Common symptoms include
headaches, shortness of breath, fatigue and dry throat. Things you can do to minimize or avoid altitude sickness include:

      • Drink plenty of water before and during your time here to prevent dehydration.
      • Avoid strenuous exercise (hiking, jogging, etc.) and salty foods when you first arrive.
      • A good first night’s rest is very helpful in giving your body time to acclimate.
      • If coming from sea level or low elevation, a day or night spent in Colorado Springs (6,035 ft) will help allow your body more time to adjust to the change in altitude.


The sun is more intense at this altitude so be mindful of how quickly sunburn can occur. Use adequate sun protection including sunscreen (SPF 15 or higher) or clothing (long sleeves, hat or cap) for outdoor activities. Reapply sunscreen periodically throughout the day as needed.


Lightning can occur year-round and at any hour. A good guideline is the phrase, ‘When thunder roars, go indoors.’ While here at camp, find a safe shelter when you hear thunder which includes being inside a building or a vehicle with the windows rolled up. If out hiking and a safe shelter is not an option, take the following precautions:

  • Immediately get off elevated areas such as hills, mountain ridges, or peaks.
  • Never lie flat on the ground. Crouch down in a ball-like position with your head tucked and hands over your ears so that you are down low with minimal contact with the ground.
  • Never shelter under an isolated tree. If you are in a forest, shelter near lower trees.
  • Never use a cliff or rocky overhang for shelter.
  • Immediately get out of and away from ponds, lakes, and other bodies of water.
  • Stay away from objects that conduct electricity (such as barbed wire fences, power lines, or windmills).
  • If with a group, spread out vs. congregate together until the storm has passed (30 min. after last visual lightening has been seen)

WINTER WEATHER (September-May)

Colorado winter temperatures range from -10°-0°F at night to a high of 35°-45°F during the day. Because of low humidity (8-10%) temperatures feel like 45°-65°F. Sunshine makes all the difference with an average of 300 days of sun per year. Clothing items to bring include: warm winter coat, snow pants, gloves, snow boots, and hat.


Be aware that paths and walkway conditions (especially on slopes) are a direct result of changing weather conditions (snow, melting & freezing temperatures). While the camp will do its best to remove snow and spread gravel, we need your help to take care and caution as you walk.


Be aware that road conditions are a direct result of changing weather conditions (snow, melting and freezing temperatures). While we plow the road to camp and to facilities, plan for the conditions to be snow packed and slick. Four-wheel drive vehicles and two-wheel drive vehicles with chains or bands are recommended.


The Forest Service permits motorized travel on only the two main roads in the camp area and at a safe speed (15mph max). Four wheelers and dirt bikes are not permitted due to noise and camper/guest safety.

Creation Care


Campfires are allowed only in established fire rings and subject to Teller County fire ban regulations. Contact the camp office for the current fire ban status. Do not leave fires unattended and thoroughly extinguish fires with water before leaving. Use metal containers for disposal of ashes or briquettes. Contact the office or emergency personnel (911) immediately in case of an uncontained fire.


Use of the surrounding Pike National Forest land is dependent on the observance of Forest Service regulations. Your help in protecting this environment and abiding by the rules for visitors is requested.


Please help us keep the mountain streams clean and do nothing that would pollute them. While clean, it is unsafe to drink from the stream and pond.


Please stay on trails and roadways when hiking. This allows the plants to maintain a strong root system and prevents the fragile hillsides from eroding away.


Litter should be put in trash receptacles to maintain the natural beauty of the mountains. Recycling bins are located in the foyer by the Dining Halls and in cabins with kitchens or kitchenettes.


Please do not pick wildflowers or other plants. Leave natural and historical objects in their place for others to observe and enjoy. Standing trees, living or dead, must not be cut or carved. Rocks are not to be rolled or thrown from high places or thrown at any time.


Please enjoy wildlife from a distance and leave wildlife alone in their habitat. Do not leave food outside for animals of any size (i.e. chipmunks, foxes, deer, bear) for your safety and theirs.

Nearby Stores & Services

Campers and guests may purchase snacks, drinks, postcards, T-shirts, sweatshirts, etc. at our Trading Post. Check with the office staff for open hours.

A small town about 6 miles from camp offers the nearest groceries, gas stations and restaurants.
