Camp Chief Ouray wants to make sure anyone who wants to be at camp has a way of attaining it. We do this in many ways; individual scholarships, partnerships with organizations, and third-party sponsors.
Below are four specific scholarship descriptions that could be helpful to those who are looking for a camp experience. We are happy to answer questions about any of these scholarships or questions about camp at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 970-887-2648.
Traditional Scholarship: This program is to assist any family who would like to apply for assistance to send their child or children to camp. Our general scholarship is funded through other camper families, alumni, and others.
Leadership Scholarship: This program is to open the possibility of learning leadership which can then be applied to all aspects of life. This program is funded by two alumni. It is open to minority applicants only.
Foster Family Scholarship: This program is specific to foster families and/or grandparents who are raising grandchildren. It is funded by a family foundation.
David Hooker Fund: This program is specific to those interested in participating in horseback riding lessons. This fund is in honor of a past Counselor and Head Wrangler – David Hooker (CCO dates: 1965-1966), and is funded through some of the Alumni who worked with and knew David.
Our goal is to serve a minimum of 10% of our camper population on scholarship. This traditionally translates to over 200 campers per summer.
If you are able to donate to help make camp a reality to those who need assistance, please follow the link below.

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.
