ENDURING TRADITIONS. FUTURE FOCUSED.
Camp Chief Ouray has grown to be a premiere overnight camping option for youth from all over the United States and the World. Whether your camper is a first timer or has attended various residential camps before, CCO provides a unique opportunity for independent development in a caring community.
We are dedicated to growth in spirit, mind, and body, in an outdoor setting and safe environment. We are committed to developing five core values: Caring, Honesty, Respect, Responsibility and Faith for daily living. Explore and grow through a strong tradition of quality programming and fun — and make life-long friends in the process. Our goal is to offer challenging experiences to build leaders through life-long skill development in a safe, imaginative, natural setting. We instill confidence through independence and interpersonal skills. We challenge our campers to discover their true selves.
We are licensed by Colorado Child Care and accredited by the American Camp Association, Praesidium, and from a program perspective we are an accredited youth program with Leave No Trace. We focus on developing confidence, independence and resilience in a safe environment through intentional programming.
