Family Camp

Family Camp is adventuring for the whole family. Bring everyone to this fun-filled weekend that covers important safety considerations, site selection, fires for cooking and heat, equipment, food and water.

Make setting up and breaking down camp a group activity, with tasks for every age. Learn fun activities to do together, new games for young kids, and skills and tools for the older ones. Plus, learn how to prevent and respond to potential emergency situations that might arise.

Join us for an enjoyable and relaxing weekend that everyone will be talking about.

Camping is at the property, with very limited amenities, but there is camping available at the Cripple Creek KOA, with more modern amenities.
