While you are at camp you will have the opportunity to participate in the following activities: archery, riflery, arts and crafts, sports and games, low ropes, swimming, hiking, and camp craft. If you are at least 9 years old you can sign up to go rafting, and if you are at least 12 years old you can sign up to participate in our high ropes course. If you like horses you can also sign up for our horseback riding program, or just a one time trail ride for an additional cost.

In the evenings you will have a blast participating in our all-camp activities! These activities include ROWDIE Campfire, All-Camp Games/Theme Activities, Campout Night, All-Camp Dance, and Closing Campfire.
Theme weeks are awesome!! Get ready for fun, excitment, skits, and some awesome costumes!!! Your counselors might dress up like fun characters during the week and you are encouraged to bring an outfit or costume to join in the fun! Check out past sessions theme week here.
Most of the cabins have electricity, but no running water. There is a bathhouse a short walk from the cabin that has toilets, sinks, and shower facilities. Each cabin has a large room with bunk beds for 8-10 campers and a small counselor room.
You may make one roommate request on your registration form when you sign up for camp but placement is not guaranteed. CCO makes every effort to honor your request provided if both campers request each other and are within one grade level, or one year of age.
Our counselors are trained to help all the campers in a cabin feel welcome from the moment they get to camp. Camp Chief Ouray believes that each camper will have a better camp experience by not requesting a cabin mate. We place campers in cabins based on grade level and age so even if you don’t know anyone when you arrive, you will quickly make new friends.
