Camp is the ideal setting for kids to connect with nature, friends, and God. Fun outdoor activities keep campers engaged. Dedicated leaders encourage campers and guide them in forming relationships with friends old and new. Opportunities for worship and service help campers to develop Christian faith.
This year our theme is “All Things New,” following camp curriculum developed by the National Council of Churches. These activities will help campers discover the fullness of God, who they are created to be, and what they are created to do.
Our Church of the Brethren camp directors are currently looking for counselors and counselors-in-training. If you would like to volunteer for a memorable week at Camp Colorado, please e-mail Jan Hurst at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Camp registration dates, forms, and additional information are available here.
The Camp Colorado Board, former directors, counselors, nurses, cooks, and campers are mourning the loss of our beloved co-manager, Darrel Jones. Darrel and his wife of 40 years, Rosi, have served tirelessly as the summer managers of the camp for the last 10 years. His passing leaves a big hole in our hearts and in the leadership of the camp. He will be sorely missed.
In lieu of flowers, the family invites you to make a donation to Camp Colorado. Donations may be mailed to the Wiley Community Church of the Brethren, P.O. Box 39, Wiley, CO 81092.
We are thrilled to have received this! A state inspection with zero violations is very rare. This achievement is the result of a LOT of persistent hard work on the part of our managers who make sure every I is dotted and every T is crossed. Additionally, we were able to achieve this because of the great work of the leaders of our weekly camps and the parents of our campers because it is so important that we have all of the health forms filled out completely with a health certificate and immunization record. Thank you!
