Glen Eyrie Day Camp

You belong here!


Located on the 800-acre gated property of the historic Glen Eyrie, campers will get a bird’s-eye view of the outdoors where native wildlife and beautiful scenery abound.

Day Camp at Glen Eyrie offers a top notch program full of fun outdoor adventures and spiritual growth opportunities for kids ages 7-13. Campers will experience two field trips every week! Every Tuesday, campers travel to Eagle Lake Camps’ overnight property to enjoy activities like the blob, zipline, waterslide, swimming, and more. Field trips on Thursdays vary week to week and include exciting locations in the surrounding area.

Other activities on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday include hiking, arts and crafts, archery, water games, tie dye, Bible study, and large team competitions. Day Camp at Glen Eyrie is so much more than just a day camp – it’s a summer filled with lasting memories and exciting adventures right here in Colorado Springs.

We’ll blast the music and have our very own Day Camp at Glen Eyrie Carnival! Campers can earn tickets by playing all the classic carnival games (and some crazy, new games too!) and can cash them in for cotton candy, face painting, and our photo booth. If they somehow manage to earn an unimaginable amount of tickets (and they seem to every year), they can even spend them to pie their favorite counselor – or even better, one of the leadership – in the face!!! Who doesn’t want to see someone get pied in the face!?

Then in the afternoon, campers will be bouncing off walls and burning energy at Springs Adventure Park, featuring sports courts, slam ball, dodge ball, dunk tank, stunt bags, a ninja warrior course, Wipeout, and Battle Joust!!!

What you need to know


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.

Eagle Lake Day Camp at Glen Eyrie
If a camper is on prescription medication, the medication is required to be checked in with Eagle Lake staff 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 we are 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 needed, medications can be picked up at the end of each day and checked in each morning.

Day Camp at Glen Eyrie: Check-in for Day Camp is on the opening Monday of camp. Please arrive between 8:30 and 9:00 am on opening day to complete the registration process and make sure there are no outstanding forms or balances on your account. Pick-up is at 4:00 pm every day. (If your camper is signed up for Before and After Care, drop-off is between 7:00-9:00 am, and pick-up is from 4:00-6:00 pm.)
