“RMDC is worth it. My kids have gone for years. The counselors are amazing. Think old fashioned day camp- sports/games/sing-offs/dance offs. One year my kids declined all other opportunities- they wanted RMDC all summer. “

-Shaun and Annabel – Camp parents

Camper Groups

At Rocky Mountain Day Camp children spend their day in a small group with other campers who are the same grade and gender. Groups share a “bunk” where they keep their personal belongings and spend “bunk time” together. Each group has their own counselors who accompany them throughout the day to ensure total supervision, safety and guidance. Bunks develop their own sense of community, cooperation and pride. Each group has their own personalized schedule of activities daily. The whole camp eats lunch together and there are several all-camp activities where bunks may combine for a multitude of activities.

“My granddaughter has been going for 5 years. Her mom said the day before camp started this year, she couldn’t sleep because she was so excited. They teach teamwork and acceptance…it’s great!”

– Pamela, Camp grandma

Special Programs and Surprises

Special events, surprises and all-star guest appearances occur throughout the summer. Rocky Mountain Day Camp campers never know what kinds of things can happen in any given day, week or session. We would love to tell you what some of these activities are, but you will have to wait and hear about them from your camper!

Wacky Wednesday

Wednesdays at camp are like no other day! Each Wednesday one-of-a-kind activities are presented by our dedicated and creative RMDC staff. Campers have the opportunity to choose one of these unique activities during this time. Favorite Wacky Wednesday activities have included: Rocky Mountain Day Spa, Survivor, Mission Impossible, Baking and much more! The possibilities are endless!

Carnival

Carnival is the ultimate all-camp event and something our campers look forward to each summer! Get your face painted. Try to hit a giant target at the football toss. Pop a balloon with your bow and arrow. Throw a pie at your favorite counselor’s face. Campers enjoy their very own carnival without ever leaving camp.

Color War

Each session campers eagerly await the infamous Color War breaks. “Are you Green or are you White,” can be heard all throughout camp as campers compete in many events and are led by our Staff Captains. Color War culminates with the Sing in which each team performs the Camp Cheer, Team Cheer, Camp Clap, as well as our Rocky Mountain Day Camp Song in front of a panel of camp judges.The RMDC Color War trophy is ceremoniously awarded to the winning team. The trophy comes with its own bragging rights, but only until the next Color War begins!

“My husband and I are so grateful for the experience B. had at RMDC. The experience of childhood camp is what you offered to him. The activities were introduced in an experimental manner that fully engaged his young group rather than create competition. The variety of activities reached each child’s special interest so each child could shine while introducing other areas of interest. The staff was respectful, warm and involved and the director was open to all parent discussion, always on site and greeted each child by name and with a big smile that said to them they were important. We thank you for this childhood memory; a beautiful imprint for B. He already talks about going again next summer.”

 

– Nancy and Clay, Camp parents

Camp FAQ

Why do you require campers to attend for a minimum of two weeks?

In any new environment it takes children two to four days to adjust and become comfortable. This is why we require campers to attend Rocky Mountain Day Camp for at least two weeks. It allows them to become comfortable and then build their confidence and self esteem. In two or more weeks campers improve their skills, make new friends and become a positive part of the camp community.

One-week registrations will NOT be accepted.  

How long are your sessions?

Our sessions are two or three weeks long, and each week builds upon the prior one, creating a unique experience each session. Each session provides your camper a new and exciting experience! 

Do I have to attend a full session?

In order to experience the magic of Rocky Mountain Day Camp from start to finish, we highly recommend your camper attend a full session. 

In order to help with scheduling, you may register for ANY two weeks across Weeks 1-10 (for example, you may register for Weeks 1,4, and 6).

Please keep in mind, we DO NOT recommend your camper’s first week of RMDC be the last week of a session.

Can I send my child to more than one session?

Yes. Every session at Rocky Mountain Day Camp is different. Campers who attend multiple sessions have new and exciting experiences every session. Many campers attend all 10 weeks.

What is your cancellation policy?

A two-week per camper minimum is required in order to attend Rocky Mountain Day Camp. This means that if you register for two weeks and only attend one, your payment will not be refunded. One week enrollments will not be accepted.

Full refunds will be given for cancellations received before May 15. Refunds requested after May 15, may result in a $50 cancellation fee.

Why are your bunks separated by gender?

Our entire camp model is based upon a sleep-away camp experience even though we are a day camp. At sleep-away camp, the bunks are created based on gender which is how we create our bunks at RMDC. This allows our campers to build a special sense of community and belonging just like they would at sleep-away camp.

We often mix groups for activities, and during our special events like Wacky Wednesday and Color War. We welcome ALL children at Rocky Mountain Day Camp and it is important to us that our campers feel comfortable in their groups.  We also work individually with our families to ensure every camper feels happy and successful each day.

What is your camper to staff ratio? Do you background check your staff and train them?
Rocky Mountain Day Camp maintains a 6 to 1 camper to staff ratio. We background check all of our staff members through the Colorado Bureau of Investigations and the Colorado Department of Human Services. Our staff receives one week of thorough training and orientation prior to the first day of camp.

Every one of our counselors is certified in First Aid, CPR, Playground and Safety, FEMA, Injury Prevention, and Universal Precautions.

Are you a licensed day camp?
(You should ask this question before you send your child to ANY camp.)
Yes. We are licensed by the State of Colorado Department of Human Services. We also follow all health guidelines as prescribed by the Boulder County Department of Health.
Do you take the campers on any field trips?
No. At Rocky Mountain Day Camp every activity and event is held on our own campus. We do not believe you can build a camp community by placing campers on a bus and taking them to public places all the time. Rocky Mountain Day Camp is a private, safe environment where your children thrive!
Is Rocky Mountain Day Camp a “Sports Camp?”
We do have many different sports but we also offer music, arts and crafts, drama, dance, gymnastics, team building, along with a variety of other non-sports activities. All of our sports and activities are done in an age and ability appropriate manner. No matter how much experience your child has in any of our activities we conduct them in a way that is fun, challenging and campers improve upon their skills.
Rocky Mountain Day Camp costs more than some other camps. Why?
In order to hire the best staff, offer amazing programs and utilize better equipment than most other camps we must charge a little more. Many camps will only have the minimum required camper to staff ratio of 15-1. We maintain a 6-1 ratio which means we have more than double the staff of some other camps. As parents, we believe your children deserve the absolute best when it comes to their summer camp experience.
