The Colorado Lions Camp was established with a simple idea, to provide summer camp opportunities for ALL abilities, regardless of a perceived "disability." Individuals who receive CamperShips gain access to attend our overnight summer camp, free of cost to families or caretakers.
The spirit of camp promotes independence rendering positive life-changing opportunities for personal growth. Making a contribution to camp not only allows for the expansion of experiences but also inspires a commitment of inclusion within your 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 $600 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.
