The six-day camp is held in the mountains outside of Estes Park, Colorado at Cal-Wood Education Center, where the teens get to leave behind their perceived limitations, labels, their overwhelming circumstances and get a chance to see their lives through new eyes. While there, our campers are physically and emotionally challenged through activities such as rock climbing, horseback riding, and whitewater rafting.
Throughout the week campers learn respect for themselves and others, and they build a supportive, open, and loving community amongst themselves. When they return home, they know that they have a support system available and ready to help guide them through the challenges of their daily lives.
While there, our campers are physically and emotionally challenged through activities such as:
These activities support the campers in gaining personal experiences and understanding of teamwork, and of trusting themselves and their peers. The activities promote the breakdown of ethnic barriers and the discovery of how similar we really are. The campers get a chance to see what is possible if they push themselves one step more, creating a new concept of how capable and powerful they are.
You will need to bring the following items to camp. If you do not have any of these items, let us know and we can help make arrangements for you.
Please leave this stuff at home.
