  • Late Pick-Up

    There will be a fee for late pick-up of your camper after. The fee is $1 per minute per child and is due at the time of late pick-up. Any overdue fees will result in the child(ren) not being accepted into camp until it has been paid. There will be no refunds for days missed due to lack of payment on a late fee.

  • FAQ'S

    It won’t let me register for a day. What can I do?
    There are two reasons that our registration software would block registration; if your kid’s state required forms were not submitted yet/approved or if the date is full. Still having issues? Contact Karen Nolasco KNolasco@MountainRec.org or (970) 688-7329.


    What is your refund policy?
    NEW! As of January 1st, 2020 our Refund and Cancellation Policy will be updated. See full policy details HERE

    Please note:

    • Refunds requested within 2 weeks of the program start date will not be considered for a refund.
    • If refund is approved, credit will be applied to your MR account minus the $15 administrative fee.


    Vending Machines | Microwaves | Refrigerators
    Children are no longer allowed to get snacks from the vending machines. Please send them with 2 or more healthy snacks each day. Campers that bring money will not be able to use the vending machine. In addition, do not send food that needs the use of a refrigerator or microwave. We are required to stay within our ratios, we do not have enough staffing to be able to warm up campers foods.
