Summer Camp FAQs

What does a typical day of camp look like?

Days at camp are filled with activity–games, crafts, worship, reflection, shared meals, and cabin time. For more detail, check out the Sample Daily Schedule.

What should my child bring to camp?

Clothes that can get dirty! Sturdy shoes! Sunscreen and water bottles! Please see the Camp Packing List for a complete list of items to bring to camp.

What is the child to adult ratio?

For grades 3-5, the ratio is 6:1; for grades 6-9, the ratio is 10:1.

What are the overnight accommodations like?

Campers are housed in Aster Cabin and Bluebell Cabin, 10 to a room, with separate areas for boys and girls. For more information about the cabins, check out Lodging at Cathedral Ridge.

Is financial assistance available to help cover camp tuition?

We want all children and youth to have the opportunity to attend camp and to that end have created a camp scholarship fund. In providing scholarships, the diocese comes alongside the family and the family’s congregation, with each party typically paying one third of the total tuition. To apply for a camp scholarship, please fill out a Financial Assistance Form.

When is payment due?

We ask that payment be submitted no later than two weeks prior to the start of camp. Please DO NOT bring payment to camp. Payments should be mailed to The Episcopal Church in Colorado, 1300 Washington St., Denver, CO 80203.

Does my child have to have a physical?

We require that all children have a physical within the 12 months preceding camp. The fourth page of the Health Information Form requires a physician’s signature indicating that the child has been evaluated within the past 12 months and is in good condition to attend camp.

When is camp check-in?

Camp check-in begins at 2 pm on the day of arrival. Please plan to arrive as close as possible to 2 pm so your child can get settled before camp activities begin.

Will I be able to contact my child during camp?

Except for emergencies, we discourage phone contact during camp. Letter-writing, however, is highly encouraged! Write your camper often at:

Cathedral Ridge
Attn: Camper Name
1364 CR 75
Woodland Park, CO 80863

Prior to the start of camp, you will receive a welcome letter with emergency contact numbers.

Can I send care packages?

Care packages are always welcome and something exciting for campers to receive. Please make sure you send things that can be shared by the cabin (10) and please consider healthy snacks. You can send them a few days early if you want to make sure that your camper has something at the beginning of the week. Another good way to handle this is to bring them with you and note which day you want them delivered. We will pass them out with the mail after lunch.

What time is pick-up?

Families are invited to attend closing Eucharist on the day of departure. Eucharist begins at 10 am and children will be ready to depart at its close. If you are unable to attend Eucharist, please plan on picking up your child at 11 am.

What if I need to cancel?

There is a $75 fee for canceled registrations. Please let us know as soon as possible if you need to cancel so we can release your spot to another child.
