Excursions 2


Explore what it means to walk with Christ while exploring a new Excursion adventure each day!

Based in cabins at Eagle Lake Camp, campers will spend their days exploring activities across our property in Pike National Forest during the daytime. With its older age group in mind, Excursions 2 ramps up Excursion 1’s activities: rock-climbing, mountain-biking, lake kayaking, hiking, traversing our low and high ropes courses, and participating in a great variety of group games and activities keep our campers exhilarated and engaged in this beautiful environment. Spiritually, campers explore further what it means to have quiet times in the beauty of God’s Creation. Our counselors will also facilitate the exploration of God’s Word through Bible Studies and seek out intentional spiritual conversations with each camper.

Campers who participate in Excursions 2 will explore God and His Word in new ways as they interact with Him in His Creation while participating in an abundance of fun-filled and inspiring activities.

This camp uses National Forest Land for part of the programming. Eagle Lake Camps operates under a special use permit from the Pikes National Forest. 

It is our desire that no child miss out on a camp experience 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.

Lost & Found update: We will no longer offer lost and found after camp has ended

We will have several opportunities for campers to look through Lost and Found during their camp session AND we will have a Lost and Found table out on Friday morning for parents to look over as they leave. However, we will no longer search through Lost and Found after camp; all Lost and Found will be donated.

A couple quick tips to help your camper’s gear pack stay intact:

  • PLEASE LABEL EVERYTHING with camper’s full name!
  • PLEASE DO NOT send anything of strong sentimental or monetary value!
  • PLEASE take the time Friday to look over the Lost and Found table before you leave.

PRO TIP: Some expert camp parents send their campers with a “Packing Checklist” to use so campers know what important things to look for as they’re packing their bags at the end of the week! (This is also super helpful for counselors, especially if there is a special “snuggie” campers need for bedtime every night!)

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.

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.

We will have several opportunities for campers to look through Lost and Found during their camp session AND we will have a Lost and Found table out on Friday morning for parents to look over as they leave. However, we will no longer search through Lost and Found after camp; all Lost and Found will be donated.

Campers may make a request for a roommate(s) when they register for an overnight camp during the registration process (this is found after signing the medical release form under “friend request”). You may also visit your camper’s registration on your account dashboard and request a roommate under “camp services”. An email will be sent to the account owner of that camper to inform them of the request. Eagle Lake will strive to accommodate these requests but cannot guarantee them due to limited housing space and age grouping considerations.


Your genuine love for the Lord and love for the campers is evident. The counselors are well trained and genuinely connected with and cared for my children. As a parent, someone else pouring God's truth into your child is invaluable, so thank you for that! —Donna, CO
