2022 Colorado Camp was a success!

 

We miss you all! 

We'd love to have you join us at Colorado Camp next summer! Camp will take place at the end of July- more details to come. Watch for Registration in April 2023.

 

We are now located north of Colorado Springs in Larkspur. Check out the campground website here:

Camp is for kids ages 9-18 (or high school senior).

Camp is a great atmosphere of adventure, friendship, archery, nature hikes, games, team-building, singing, and most importantly, growing closer to God.

Members of the  Hutchinson Bell will have priority in registration.

What if I Need Help Paying for Camp?

You can apply for the Joel Sloan Camp Fund scholarship. This fund is in honor of a gentleman who spent his life helping young people at the North Carolina Florida College Camp. To apply for this scholarship, click here. 

 

Encourage your camper to get creative raising and saving money for camp (i.e., bake sale, garage sale, odd jobs, babysitting, etc...)

If you need more information regarding financial assistance, please email the Higgins at: ColoradoFCCamp@gmail.com
