Each week Camp Chief Ouray has a different theme, which starts at the first campfire and concludes at the last campfire. The theme permeates mealtimes and sets the stage for the evening activities. The counselors and staff pour their creativity and energy into making the theme weeks fun for everyone.
We do give creative license to the counselors to ensure the campers are involved in some way with the theme (EX: for Frozen Week in 2015, we had one cabin become the ‘Miracle on Ice’ USA Hockey Team and another become the Russian Team, meals included chants of the respective countries). The only limit is the imagination of the campers and the counselors, but there is no ‘boy’ theme or ‘girl’ theme we follow.
The themes really only account for approximately 15% of the overall program. The daily schedule is not affected by the themes.
