As a member of Hospitality Crew, you will serve in a wide variety of areas around camp, each of which is vital to keeping our Eagle Lake programs running smoothly.
You’ll spend each week on one of four Service Crew rotations: AM Hospitality, PM Hospitality, Outdoor Crew, or Store Crew.
As part of Indoor Crew, you’ll serve meals (prepared by the Kitchen staff) to campers and staff; you will help clean up after meals by sweeping and mopping the dining hall, wiping down tables, and washing dishes; you’ll clean bathrooms in the various buildings around camp. By serving camp in these areas, you help provide opportunities for counselors to minister to and serve their campers.
As part of Outdoor Crew, you will perform various outside maintenance projects that serve to keep camp looking great! Outdoor crew includes jobs such as fixing fences, digging new trails, weekly trash runs, and other various projects. With such a high volume of energetic campers coming onto the property each week, we depend on the Outdoor Crew to keep camp well-maintained.
As part of Store Crew, you will experience the retail side of Eagle Lake. You’ll work in the camp store selling all kinds of snacks and merchandise to campers and staff during their free time. You will help our Store Manager organize stock, do inventory, place orders, and perform various other tasks around camp.
It is our desire that no child miss out on an Eagle Lake Camp experience because of financial circumstances. Financial aid, in the form of a partial assistance scholarship, is available to those in need. Click here 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!)

The Important Stuff

Pick up authorization
Don’t forget your photo ID for pick up! To ensure each camper’s safety we will check photo IDs to make sure it matches one of the names on the pick-up authorization form before releasing a camper. To authorize a friend/family member to pick up your child from camp, please log into your registration account and complete the Pick-up Authorization section.
What you need to know
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.
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, your camper must have an active Eagle Lake registration secured with a $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).
Eagle Lake is located on Rampart Range Road past Woodland Park. Please see the Directions page for customized driving directions to camp. Please note that the last 12 miles of Rampart are unpaved and somewhat rough.
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 upload a copy of the current health form to your camper’s registration account; all documents from prior years go into archive following the summer months, and are irretrievable.
