Colvig Silver Camps is a family owned, coed, residential summer camp. Our philosophy is environmentally oriented and non-competitive, and our choice based format is designed to develop self-esteem, leadership skills, responsibility, and teamwork. We believe that the challenges of outdoor education, fun, and adventure provide some of the best opportunities to achieve this goal.

With our choice based format, campers are able to tailor their summer activities to their interests. Each day in camp, our creative staff will offer a variety of activities from which the campers can choose. These may include more "traditional" camp activities such as arts & crafts, riflery, archery, or lake activities to activities that stem from our staff's areas of expertise and creativity. These have included African dance, thistle bashing, yoga, algae monsters, and the "Great American Egg Drop".

Out of camp trips, ranging from 1-5 days in duration, are the highlight of each term at CSC. Campers of every age choose from a variety of expeditions appropriate to their age group. The opportunities inherent in wilderness travel to inspire self-confidence and independence are unmatched. The Four Corners region is ideal for wilderness exploration due to its diverse geography. Within a three-hour ride, campers can be rafting the Gunnison River, exploring Anasazi ruins in Utah, discovering a ghost town near the Continental Divide, or climbing a lofty peak in the Weminuche Wilderness.
