The DAC offers a variety of camps for youth ages 11 – 16, or in grades 6 – 8. There are options available for your child whether they are involved in Scouting or not.
Camp Dietler is Peaceful Valley Scout Ranch‘s “patrol cooking camp.” Troops participate in a back-to-basics style of camping that gives Camp Dietler its bold and exciting character. Scouts will pitch their own tents, cook food as a patrol, and learn how to work as a team to make their week successful.
Camp Cris Dobbins at Peaceful Valley Scout Ranch offers sweeping views of Pikes Peak and the front range of the Rocky Mountains. Scouts will have a hard time choosing between the more than 50 Merit Badges offered and will love spending time on water slides at the outdoor pool, dusting a clay at the Olympic shotgun range, channeling their inner movie star in our moviemaking program, or pretending to be Indiana Jones at the STEM lodge archaeology dig site.
At EaglePoint Base Camp at Tahosa High Adventure Base, troops will participate in a traditional summer camp with emphasis on achieving outdoor-types Merit Badges, which are taught by staff. If a troop is feeling a bit more ambitious, they may bring their own program and Merit Badge counselors to take full advantage of the Merit Badges opportunities offered at EaglePoint.

Makers Camp is for young creative minds always looking to start a new project. Makers Camp is a summer day camp offered at CAP as well.

Each day will start out with learning about art concepts, such as color theory, and the logistics of working in the field. After introducing how to safely operate the tools, the rest of the day will be an open workshop with the assistance of our qualified instructors. At Colorado Adventure Point
