TRAINING LEADERS. BUILDING TOMORROW.
Communities, schools and families all need strong leaders. Camp Chief Ouray has many opportunities for teens between the ages for 15 and 18 to gain these valuable skills while participating in activities at camp and in the wilderness.
The Leadership Training Programs have an application process that are set up in a way for campers to take initiative for their goals. Campers need to answer online questions, complete a phone interview and submit 1 letter of recommendation before they can be considered for one of these programs. (If a camper has completed a Leadership Training Program at Camp Chief Ouray before, they don’t need to resubmit the letter of recommendation) Please have a parent complete the camper application to begin this process.
Spots for these programs are not guaranteed until the camper is notified that they are officially accepted and enrolled in the program.
Check out our NEWEST leadership program; Expedition Leadership! This is a two-week program that spends nine (9) days in the Flattops Wilderness.
If there are any questions about this process, feel free to call Kelvina Doss, Leadership & Trips Director at 970-887-2648 (ext. 1905), or email email@example.com.
