About the Camp
The mission of the American Diabetes Association Camp Colorado is to foster independence, self-confidence and awareness of a healthy lifestyle through education, nutrition, exercise, emotional well being and glucose control in children.
Camp Colorado is held at beautiful Eagle Lake camp in the heart of Pike National Forest. Only 9 miles outside of Woodland Park, CO and a short distance from Colorado Springs, Camp Colorado is an idyllic summer camp setting.
What is camp all about - Empowered adventure. This is the rally cry of Association Camp Colorado. We provide one Association-trained diabetes counselor for every four campers and then add an additional program counselor just to ensure a safe good time! Camp Colorado is a non-intimidating place to expand your knowledge of diabetes while making new friends and creating experiences you'll be telling other people about for years to come.
We encourage each camper to learn something new about diabetes management but never force education. At Camp Colorado, we believe that you will take something away that is specific to your own stage of development. Meet new friends, have a blast and hopefully learn something new about yourself along the way.
Camp Colorado is funded through the generous support of corporations, foundations, clubs and organizations, third party events and individual gifts. Monetary gifts of all sizes go a long way! A few ways your donation can make a difference this year are by helping provide juice fairy snack boxes for each cabin nightly, providing each camper a glow necklace on a crazy night, sending a teen on a full day white water raft trip and helping us purchases new camp walkie-talkies!
Camp Colorado costs approximately $650 per camper.
Many Campers need supplies including sleeping bags, backpacks, and other basic gear.
Murphy & Landree have set a goal of raising $5,000 to send 5 kids to camp fully outfitted
All proceeds from this event will be donated directly to Camp Colorado Camperships.
