Hey, Camp Fans!
We here at Everything Summer Camp are proud to work with nearly 300 summer camps across the nation! We’re their recommended camp outfitter and, in return, we love singing the praises of the many camps with whom we’ve developed a wonderful working relationship. That’s why today I’m shining our camp spotlight on the pristine land in the southwest Colorado.
In the Red Creek Valley at the foot of the rugged San Juan Mountains Colvig Silver Camps lies all beautiful 600 acres to the Colvig Silver name. The Cottonwood valley, open hay fields, and Ponderosa forest, the campgrounds range from 7,200 to 8,000’ in elevation. The camp is bordered on three sides by the San Juan National Forest and provides access to some of the most pristine, beautiful, and diverse wilderness on the earth. They see 300 sunny days a year with a cool, clear, dry climate—perfect for summer camp!
Choices are very important when it comes to summer camp. At Colvig Silver, campers get to choose their activities and trips on a daily basis for an extremely unique experience. You want to go horseback riding, go horseback riding. You want to go rock climbing, go rock climbing. You want to kayak in the lake, go kayak in the lake. You can climb a 14,000 foot peak, explore ancient ruins, discover a crystal clear alpine lake, lead an improv game at the campfire, the options are endless!
Campers live in cabins with one or two counselors and four to six campers. The cabins differ throughout camp, but all are cozy structures that have comfy beds and mattresses, windows, and nearby bathrooms and common areas. Campers have their own bunk (choose top or bottom bunk) and they’re welcome and encouraged to bring things like family pictures, posters, or a treasured blanket to make the cabin and bunk feel like home.
