BSA Summer Camps in Colorado

Elkhorn High Adventure Base

It seems a lot of troops want to experience a summer camp in Colorado. So here is a list of the BSA summer camp properties located in Colorado. All four Colorado Scout councils, as well as one western Kansas council, operate summer camps (and some also operate council high adventure bases) in Colorado. Regular summer camps are open to all Scouts, while the high adventure bases usually have an older age limit. Regular summer camps also usually offer programs for Cub Scouts and Webelos.

Note that aquatic offerings may be limited or absent (noted below), and high-altitude lakes can be chilly (though two camps have a heated pool as well as a lake).

Besides the high adventure bases, the regular summer camps also offer older-Scout programs that may include canoeing or white water rafting, horseback riding, backpacking, rock climbing/rappelling, COPE, shooting sports (rifle, shotgun, muzzle-loader), and more.

A link to the camp's webpage, if available, or to the Council's webpage is given with each camp listing, so you can find out more.

COVID NOTE—Most Colorado summer camps plan to operate for the 2021 season. Operational plans are noted after each Council's name below.
