The Power of Camp
Each summer we have children and teenagers from all walks of life come and experience God at High Peak Camp.
The Salvation Army is dedicated to touching the lives of our youth. One of the ways we accomplish this is through the summer camps. Each summer we have children and teenagers from all walks of life come and experience God at High Peak Camp. At camp, we offer many daily activities for each child's interests.
So why choose High Peak Camp?
The children that attend High Peak will have a blast, become more independent, learn how to work together in a group, make new friends, gain self-confidence, grow in their knowledge of God, live with some of the best college-aged role models and be mentored and develop leadership skills throughout the week.
Here are just a few of the reasons why to entrust High Peak with your children’s summer camp experience. Campers will:
Have a blast!
Learn how to be more independent
Make new friends
Grow in their knowledge of God
Grow in their faith
Camper Safety & Health Care
Safety is our priority. At High Peak, each child's health and safety is our primary concern. Our safety standards are designed to meet or exceed the requirements of the American Camp Association and the State of Colorado Child Licensure Department, with the underlying desire to treat each camper as if they were our own.
Health and Wellness
Each overnight camp session finds a full-time medical staff in place, usually consisting of at least 1 registered nurse, 1 nurse assistant and a licensed physician (off site) throughout the session. (The camp physician always remains on call in the event of a more serious accident or injury.) High Peak nurses dispense daily medications, treat minor illnesses and injuries and manage the Nurses' Station.
In addition to our medical staff on duty, High Peak Camp goes to great lengths to ensure that all of its staff is properly trained in necessary areas. All summer staff is required to attend a 10-day orientation session during which everyone is certified in CPR and First Aid. In addition, all instructors are certified, in areas such as ropes course, riflery, archery, etc.
