Ajax Sleepaway Campers have the freedom to choose what they want to do. During the morning activity period, each counselor offers a different activity. After the announcements, each camper picks which activity he/she will participate in for that morning. A typical day might see several campers go zip-lining, others BMX biking, another group fishing, others water adventuring, still others choosing to participate in a morning of crazy activities such as rotten fruit golf or horse poo baseball, etc, etc. After lunch, the counselors announce new activities and the campers again choose whichever activity they want to participate in for the afternoon. As sleepaway campers, the kids learn about independence, self-discovery, and community living - skills that would be difficult to learn at home or even at our day camp! We love being adventurous, so if you have an idea for an activity, convince a counselor and some campers to go do whatever it is you imagined.
Ajax Sleepaway, located at 8K Ranch, is rustic and embraces its mountainous surroundings. Our campers are adventurous in that they don't care if they get a little dirty, they don't care if if they need to take shelter from a Colorado rainstorm, they gravitate towards the outdoor lifestyle and relish the adventure of it all!
Since every camper gets an Ajax Sleepaway hoodie and there are over 30 clubs of which they can earn patches, each camper can customize their experience and earn their way into as many clubs as they can.
