How do the two locations compare to each other? Is one better than the other?

Both locations have amazing views, staff and food. The biggest difference is the age groups they serve.

Mt. Evans and Windy Peak are truly “sister camps”.  Jefferson County Public Schools own both facilities and uses them throughout the school year for outdoor programming for students within the district.  We are lucky to have them as partners and take over the sites for the summer to host our Resident Camps!

We are incredibly lucky to call these locations home for the summer!  Mt. Evans, with over 500 private acres that is surrounded by several thousand acres of protected land, provides ample opportunity for adventures to happen on-site or within a very short drive.  Highlights of the property include a historic barn, wildlife center, covered wagons, a 100+ year old lodge, on-site rock climbing, mountain biking, kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, backpacking, and so much more!

Windy Peak is just as stunning, nestled on over 200 acres adjacent to the Colorado Trail in Bailey, CO. It boasts historic buildings and artifacts, a Kiwanis Astronomy lab, a trout-stocked pond maintained by Trout Unlimited, cabin accommodations, and breathtaking views through the valley.  We simply can't resist the amazing recreation opportunities nearby for our older campers to enjoy incredible trails, crags, and water and test their skills.
