Ajax Adventure Camp


Sign up by April 30th for 10% OFF enrollment

Sleepaway Camp: Ages 8+, nestled in the rocky mountains, surrounded by streams, lakes and mountain peaks, Ajax Adventure Ranch Camp's Tipi village is home to our adventurous sleepaway campers. Here on the ranch, kids will be given the choice of activities ranging from rock climbing, paddleboarding, archery, fishing, and cowboy paintball to rockets, crafts, survival skills, camping, and barnyard activities. This will be a true adventure sleepaway camp where campers, can build new structures and camp traditions while shaping the future of Ajax Adventure Ranch Camp. We offer 8 week-long sessions throughout the summer (each session begins on a Sunday and ends on a Saturday). Campers may attend up to 4 sessions. Dropoff and pickup is at the Aspen Middle school and we will transport campers to the ranch (1+ hr into the mountains from Aspen). We have one unique session this summer in partnership with the Aspen Center for Environmental Studies (the July 10th session); emphasizing wilderness survival skills, animal tracking, and other activities that the experts at ACES will help deliver.

Day Camp: Day camp runs Monday through Friday from June 11 to August 12 2018. Camp beings at 9:00 AM and ends at 5:00 PM. Base camp is located inside of the Aspen Middle School. Lunch and snacks are provided. Campers are free to choose their activities in the morning and the afternoon from the variety offered by the counselors.

Sunday Cowboy Paintball: Sunday Cowboy Paintball offered each Sunday.

Campout: Campouts are 1-night overnight trips departing Friday after lunch and returning to basecamp between 2:00 and 2:30 the next day (Saturday). Campouts are themed either Iron Chef campouts, Scavenger Hunt Campouts, or Survivalist. Iron Chef campouts divide the campers into teams which are given a secret ingredient from which they must craft an appetizer, main course, and desert using the camping cooking equipment. On Scavenger Hunt Campouts, the campers’ gear and food are hidden, and the group must follow clues and complete challenges to piece together their campsite and hopefully find their s’mores! Survivalist campers will build shelters, fires using flint and steel, and other adventurous activities. If using a punch pass, you will use 2 punches (to attend camp on Friday and Saturday).

Rafting: Rafting trips will take the entire camp day. Campers will raft class III rapids on the Colorado River down Shoshone to Glenwood Springs. Raft trips depart every Thursday. Campers must sign up ahead of time to reserve a space for rafting. If you signed up for a ‘week package’, rafting is included (optional of course).
