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.
