Adventure Camp FAQs

How do you determine check-in and check-out times? Is there a way to check-in earlier or check-out later?

Our check-in and check-out times are determined by Snow Mountain Ranch. As a result, we are not able to provide earlier check-in or later check-out times.

How long do check-in and check-out take?

The amount of time required varies depending on the number of medications or other unique needs of each camper. We stagger check-in times to minimize wait. We suggest that you allow an hour to an hour and a half. Check-out is typically a shorter process. We ask that each family sign up for a 15 minute check-out window to allow you time to meet and talk with your counselor about your camper’s week.

Is there a way I can contact my counselor?

Counselors will email an introduction to each family before camp. You can then request a phone call. If you would like to talk to your camper’s counselor sooner, please contact the Program Director at adventure@adamscamp.org or call 303-563-8290.

We used to be able to see staff pictures and bios on the website and now we cannot, why?

We upgraded to a new camper registration system which has many benefits, but currently it does not allow families to access staff information. If you would like to know more about your camper’s counselor please email: adventure@adamscamp.org.

What is the counselor to camper ratio?

Adventure Camp is staffed with your camper’s safety and fun in mind. We use a ratio of 2 counselors and 4 volunteers to 10 campers.

Where do I find the camper handbook?

The Adventure Camp Family Handbook is on CampBrain Registration website. 

Where do I find the medical form?

The medical form can be found on the CampBrain Registration website. Please download and print this form. Once your camper’s healthcare provider has completed and signed it, return it to our office by hand, mail, fax (303-563-8291) or email: adventure@adamscamp.org.

My camper’s medication has changed since I submitted the form, what do I do?

All medication changes must be documented and signed by your camper’s healthcare provider. Please download and use the Medication Changes Form found on the CampBrain Registration website then bring this signed document with you to camp.

My camper has prescriptions from multiple providers. Do they all need to sign off on his/her medication form?

No, one provider can sign off on all medications.

Why do medications need to be in their original containers?

Child care licensure and the state health department require that we store all medication in their original containers. Doing so also allows us to ensure that we are giving the medications correctly for your camper’s safety and health at camp.

Where can I find a sample menu?

A sample menu can be found in the Adventure Camp Family Handbook on the Colorado Camp Documents page. Please note that menus often change based on camper preferences and availability of foods throughout the summer.

Can I call my camper while they are at camp? Can they call me?

We ask that campers leave any cell phones at home to allow them to immerse themselves in camp. You can contact the camp manager by email: adventure@adamscamp.org for updates throughout the week.

Where can I find pictures? What time will they be up?

Shortly prior to your camp week, you will receive a welcome email with check-in times and other information, including the link to the photos on Smugmug. During the camp week, each day’s pictures get uploaded late at night. Our photographers do their best to be as many places at once as possible but we have 4 groups quite often doing 4 different activities. If you notice your camper has not been featured in photographs please let us know and we will do our best to include more photos of them the next day.

Can you organize the photos by cabin or team to help me find my camper faster?

No. We agree it would be nice to place the pictures by camper or teams in folders but we want our staff with the campers, rather than sorting photos so we are not able to do this.

I would like to buy pictures but $1 is a lot for each picture. Is there a more affordable way to get the pictures?

Smugmug sets their fees and keeps the funds so we are not able to adjust that. One option is that you can right click on any image to save it to your computer to share, save or print.
