In this program, campers embark on greater and more skill-specific adventures.

Campers will not only be challenged to three extreme adventures- mountain-biking, rock-climbing, and white-water rafting- but they will also be challenged to embark upon a life journey with Christ as their guide. Campers will spend the night in cabins at Eagle Lake Camp and participate in warm-up activities on-site. Then, they will be taking their skills off-site on longer and more intense day-trip adventures.  These new locations and activities parallel their growing and maturing in relationship with Christ as they embark on a journey that will expand their walk beyond the initial discovery and exploration of our earlier Excursion programs.

Campers who participate in Adventure Experiences 3 will embark on exhilarating journeys that will challenge and stimulate their physical, mental/emotional, social, and spiritual growth.

This camp uses National Forest Land for part of the programming.

It is our desire that no child miss out because of financial circumstances. Financial aid, in the form of a partial assistance scholarship, is available to those in need. Visit our Campership page to apply.

FAQs

What you need to know


Overnight Camps
If a camper is on prescription medication, the medication is required to be checked in with the nurse at registration.All medications, including vitamins, must be in the original container or will not be accepted. All medication, including vitamins, must be listed on the Eagle Lake physical form by the prescribing doctor. We do not allow any camper to keep medications on them except specifically requested by the physician.

Our medical staff distributes all medication at the time it needs to be taken by the camper. Please do not have campers bring over-the-counter medication to camp, as our camp infirmary is sufficiently stocked to meet the general needs of headaches, coughs and scrapes. If you have any questions about a specific medical situation, please call the camp office.

If a camper is on one of our Excursions, he or she will need to check any medication in with the nurse, who will then give the medication to the counselor to administer at the appropriate time.

 

Because of the steep inclines and rough terrain of most Eagle Lake programs, campers with physical challenges should contact Eagle Lake before registering to discuss the respective program and help our staff understand the special needs of his or her situation.

Rental equipment for our Excursion Camps includes everything from Crazy Creek chairs to bikes, backpacks, and sleeping bags. In fact, the only equipment we don’t have available is clothing and boots! Rental items are available on a first come, first served basis. We will provide other necessary equipment once the camper is on the trail – cooking utensils, stoves, etc. You can view rental prices below and contact our camp office for more specific rental information.

Rental Prices:
Crazy Creek chair – $8.00
Sleeping bag – $20.00
Thermarest pad – $7..00
Climbing shoes – $5.00
Rain jacket – $5.00
Backpack – $25.00

REFERRAL DISCOUNT We also offer a Referral Program discount which provides an opportunity for you to earn discounts (up to a free week of camp) while helping us recruit new campers. Our referral program is only eligible for our Overnight Camps, and provides a $50 discount for each new camper you refer. Please see our referral page for more information.

Overnight and Day Camp Programs: Financial aid, in the form of a partial assistance scholarship, is available to those in need. Financial assistance is approved by application only. Visit our Campership page to apply.

To qualify for financial aid, camper must have an active Eagle Lake registration secured with $50 deposit (while the deposit is typically non-refundable, in the case that a registration must be cancelled due to insufficient financial assistance, the deposit will be refunded).

 

Due to the frequent changes and updates that children experience within a year’s time we require parents to fill out a new health form every year. The doctor’s physical may be accepted if it is within 12 months of camp attendance. Please bring a copy of the current health form with you on the day of registration; all documents from prior years go into archive following the summer months, and are irretrievable.


Crew reminded me of who I serve and why I serve Him. I've learned so much about myself and God this summer. I can honestly say that this has been the best experience of my life! —Hallie, CO
