2021 Respite Camp Weekend 

Summer 2021
May 4, 2021

Dear Camp Families, here’s to a successful and safe return of The Colorado Lions Camp! We are committed to finding a safe and creative way to serve all of our campers and staff this upcoming summer. We continue to work with our local and state health departments as well as CDC and ACA (American Camp Association) to provide the safest program. We know that things can change daily, so we are staying up with the changes and will keep everyone posted.


While we continue to hope for the best for summer 2021, we know that COVID will still be with us in some form. Please read the following items carefully:


1. Mask will be required at all times (if we can be outside and social distance, we will provide mask breaks)


2. Enhanced cleaning and sanitizing measures will be in place, more than they were in the past.


3. Camp Sessions will be from Sunday to Friday with smaller groups attending the weekly sessions.


4. Check-in and Check-out will look very different this summer, you will be asked to stay in your car and screened before you can come in. Only one person is allowed to enter the building with the camper during check-in and check-out. Please do not bring additional people or pets for this process.


5. Each camper will have their temperature checked twice a day during their stay here at CLC.


With the summer approaching quickly and numbers are still low for registration we have put together new dates and max numbers. If you are registered already, please note the date change in your letter. We will be running at 50% capacity for this upcoming summer. If you have not registered, please pick the appropriate date based off of this letter.


Thank you for your continued support and dedication to our program, we will get through this and hopefully, summer 2022 will get us back to some normalcy. If you have a roll over fee from 2020 and still are unsure if you would like to attend this summer, we would love to have you donate this amount to our program so we can keep serving you.

Yours in camping,
Erin Newport
Executive Director

COVID-19 and Camp 

January 7, 2021

Dear Lions, Camp Family & Friends,

The Colorado Lions Camp is adhering to the state, local, and federal guidelines in regards to COVID-19 and their updates. For respite programs, we are offering 8 campers and 2 staff members so we don't exceed the 10 person per limit at this time. Summer 2021 is in the works of what it will look like, how we will follow protocols. Our 2021 registration is open!


Don't forget if you do attend a respite session or come to the camp's property, we ask you to wear your mask, social distance, and wash your hands. If you don't feel well please stay home and stay safe!

We hope that all of you are staying safe and healthy during this difficult COVID -19 pandemic. This pandemic is not something that any of us expected or was prepared to handle, including the camp. What happens to the camperships and donations that our amazing donors have sent in? Well, we will still be assisting campers to attend our respite weekends. Those funds, along with individual donations, club donations, Pennies for People, and Dollar-a-Month contributions, will also help offset the cost of keeping our doors open.  Donations are still needed during this difficult time as we prepare for our upcoming respite camps, finishing up maintenance projects, and knocking items off our never-ending “to do” list.  We will be cutting back our hours and trimming our expenses so we can hit the ground running for a new summer.


The Colorado Lions Camp has faced many obstacles in the past 50 years and we continue to be strong. We will get through this, not alone, but together!  Your support for our powerful mission is what makes this all possible for the incredible campers and families we serve.


We leave you with these words… “Hard times don’t create heroes. It is during the hard times when the “HERO” within us is revealed.”
