Camp Rocky is an educational week long, residential outdoor adventure camp for youth 14-19 years old who are interested in natural resources. This year marks the 54th year that Camp Rocky has hosted kids providing the opportunity to experience projects related to:

  • Forest Management
  • Rangeland Science
  • Soil and Water Conservation
  • Fish and Wildlife Management

Camp Rocky will be July 9-15 located just outside Divide, Colo., about 45 minutes west of Colorado Springs. The Camp Rocky’s professional staff guides participants in learning about their environment through hands-on experiences. The student participants are put into teams to develop and present a natural resource “action plan” and use their group plan to complete a management project.

All this while making new friends from across Colorado. If you know a youth who would thrive on this experience, encourage them to register.

The Camp Rocky content is compliant with Colorado educational standards and endorsed by the Colorado Teacher’s Association. This is a collaboration with many sponsors who are listed on their brochure and web site. Interested youth are encouraged to apply NOW, space is limited. Go to: www.coloradoacd.org/camprocky and download the 2017 camp forms. Every camper is required to have a current physical exam by a licensed medical doctor.  Submit your application and $100 deposit (made payable to: CO Association of Conservation Districts) in time to meet their June 1st deadline.
