CAMP"S ROOTS

In 1964, Lion Dr. ML Crawford offered his cabin in Steamboat Springs to be used for the very first camp session sponsored by the Lions Clubs in Colorado. There were five girls that attended that summer; each girl was visually impaired. In 1966, several Lions signed personal notes to purchase the present location of the Colorado Lions Camp. 

At the 1968 State Convention, the Lions of Colorado voted to build a permanent camp, and forty acres were purchased from the Brethren in Pike National Forest, just north of Woodland Park.

 

In 1969, the Lions Camp hosted its first year of residential camping in the newly constructed facility which serves as the Luke Lodge today. A total of 16 campers who were visually impaired attended. Today, over 400 campers with a variety of abilities attend our summer and respite programs throughout the year. 

The Colorado Lions Camp and Conference Center is a project of the Lions Clubs from the state of Colorado.  The camp is a year-round facility that provides summer and respite programs for individuals with varying abilities age 8 to adult. In addition, the camp is available for rental groups during our off-season months (August 15 to May 15). 

 

The camp is nestled at 8,500 feet in the mountains of Pike National Forest, just 30-minutes west of Colorado Springs and four miles north of Woodland Park on Highway 67N.
