Let the Adventure Begin

Magness Adventure Camp offers a family-style camping experience. With a beautiful lake, archery and BB gun ranges, rock climbing, canoeing, and paddle boating, Magness offers a Cub Scout camping adventure for Scouts and family members of all ages!

Magness Adventure Camp is located on the west side of Peaceful Valley Scout Ranch in Elbert, Colorado. The camp is approximately a one-hour drive from downtown Denver. From the Magness Tower, the camp boasts sweeping views of the Front Range, including Pikes Peak.

Camp Sessions

At check-in, each family or group will be assigned to a shelter, where everyone sleeps in a comfortable tent complete with two padded bed frames. Extra sleeping pads for a third person or campers under the age of five can be checked out from camp staff. Tents sit on platforms and may be closed at night for privacy. Modern and heated bathroom facilities include private hot showers and flush toilets and are located at each shelter. All bathrooms are wheelchair accessible.
