Youth Leadership Board



With all the changes to camp this summer, we are taking the time to reevaluate the Youth Leadership Board for a fresh start in fall 2021. Look for information this summer on the updates and timelines!


Camp is advised by teens through our Youth Leadership Board. Youth Leadership Board (YLB) is a great way to stay connected to camp and be a part of camp’s future. The Board is comprised of 12 youth, ages 14-17. They meet throughout the year in person in the Denver area and at camp to help make decisions about camp programs, events, recruiting and fundraising for the CCO scholarship fund. It is a wonderful way to help make an impact and stay connected to Camp Chief Ouray throughout the year.

Why Should I Apply?

  • Build leadership skills that can help you in your future
  • Meet new friends with the same passion you have for camp
  • Advise camp staff on how to improve programming
  • Build your resume for college

Board Requirements and Expectations

  • Attend at least 1 camp program during the current summer
  • Volunteer 25 hours in your local community throughout the year.
  • Volunteer at one off season CCO event (ex. Volunteer Day, First Time Camper, etc.)
  • Participate in both Fall and Spring Retreats
  • Raise $225 for the CCO Scholarship Fund

If you would like to offer suggestions, please reach out to Kelvina, Leadership & Trips Director, at or by calling the camp office at 970-887-2648.
