RMCNews with John Boone — Ward, Colorado … After a lonely, quiet summer in 2020, Glacier View Ranch is ready to once again welcome the laughter, smiles, and adventure that summer camp brings.

The GVR staff began arriving on June 9 and has been busy preparing the camp to welcome youth and young adults to the site.

The staff is glad to be back at GVR and to enjoy the picturesque setting.

Last year, even though there was no camp, a small group of dedicated workers were able to complete several upgrades and new attractions.

A brand-new corral and Shredders’ pump track, an adventurous mountain bike track, were put in and awaits camper exploration this summer. Among these new attractions, the campers will enjoy a remodel of the camp store and aquatics locker rooms.

Nathaniel Sanchez, GVR mountain bike director, is expectant as he waits for the campers to try out the new track. “The pump track is going to be a really cool vessel to connect with campers in different ways!” he comments.

Very soon, the campfire worship, nature exploration, and youth hugging old friends and making new friends will fill the grounds.

The summer camp season begins Sunday, June 20, with Explorer camp. The good news is that spots are still available for future weeks. To reserve a spot or be placed on a waiting list, please visit www.rmcyouth.org/camp
