At the Colorado Lions Camp, we're dedicated to providing a summer camp experience that's inclusive, engaging, and transformative for all individuals, regardless of perceived "disabilities." We believe that everyone deserves the chance to explore the great outdoors, develop new skills, and make lifelong memories at camp.
But we're not just providing a great experience for our campers - we're also making a positive impact on the local community. Our programs and activities bring people together from all walks of life, and help to foster a sense of connection and belonging that's often missing in our busy, fast-paced world.
By donating your time, talent, or treasure to the Colorado Lions Camp, you're not just supporting our mission - you're also investing in the local community. Our programs and activities create jobs for our dedicated staff and volunteers, and help to build a stronger, more resilient community that's built on the values of inclusivity and empathy.
When you contribute to the Colorado Lions Camp, you're helping to create a community that's more welcoming, more supportive, and more inclusive. You're helping to provide opportunities for people of all abilities to come together and learn from one another.
So join us in making a difference. Contact us today to learn more about how you can get involved and support our mission. Together, we can create a brighter future for our campers and for our community!
From Talent to Treasure: Ways You Can Support the Colorado Lions Camp and Our Community
The Colorado Lions Camp has always had the policy that no camper will be turned away for the inability to pay, and to date, we have stood by that commitment. Please consider sponsoring a camper in need of financial support to attend our camp programs. Camp's fee is $650 per summer session or $250 for weekend respite camps. Your contribution will provide a meaningful and unforgettable camp experience that can be shared. If you are mailing in a donation, please make sure to specify that it is a "Campership" so we can process your donation accordingly. If you prefer on making a donation by credit card, please contact the camp office.
To build and manage a charitable trust fund with the express purpose of funding future camperships.
Over 70% of our campers receive financial assistance to attend camp each year through the Lions Clubs of Colorado. Each year, it is becoming more challenging to raise the funds needed to provide camperships due to the decrease in funding on the State and Federal levels, resulting in an increase in the need for assistance. The camp endowment fund provides the needed funding necessary to help fill in these gaps.
You can double - or even triple - the impact of your donation to the Colorado Lions Camp with a matching gift from your employer. Employer matching gifts are a simple way to maximize your donation to provide resources for people with disabilities.
This is a program where Lions and individuals can make a $12/yearly donation directly to the camp. In exchange, we will mail you a Dollar-a-Month pin, along with a dangle with the year of your contribution. We use these donations to further fund our programs. Contact the camp for more information.
Pennies for People
Don't let loose change weigh you down. Donate that loose change to help maintain the growth of the camp.
Honor a loved one by making memorial donations directly to the camp or by purchasing a brick on the camp's honor wall. All money received from brick purchases goes directly into our camp's endowment fund.
Host a Fundraiser
Community fundraisers are an easy and fun way to give to the Colorado Lions Camp. The funds directly support our campers and program activities at the Colorado Lions Camp. Contact the camp for more information and ideas at 719-687-2087.
