Camp Chief Ouray has exciting plans for new and expanded facilities in the future to serve more campers while keeping alive our long history of camp traditions. But we are not waiting to start adding to our program, we have already started with a few projects to help camp look great.
New area to hold the dumpsters – Looking at a dumpster as you drive into camp would not give a good feeling for leaving your child with us. We had a holding area built to protect the trash from our natural neighbors, and to hide it from site. This project was completed by the Navy SeaBees. Completed in July 2016.
Expanded Archery Range – In the past we have been able to have campers rotate through our archery area to take turns shooting. We have expanded the archery range to include a beginners and advanced area, and allow up to 20 shooters at a time. Completed in December 2016.
Bouldering Rock – In our long range plan, CCO will not have to share program space with Snow Mountain Ranch. We are looking at making some program improvements by being able to have our own climbing complex. The first stage of this is a bouldering rock so campers can work on their technical skills and improve confidence in their abilities. Currently raising funds.
The new CCO Master Site Plan overlaps the existing camp layout to allow for phasing and expansion without taking the older cabins off-line. The new site offers areas for future development and consolidates the majority of development and program areas, providing an area buffered from adjacent YMCA usage.
