How early do I need to book?

Our camp is first-come, first served. We do try to offer our returning groups the first right of refusal. You can schedule a tour of our site to see if it fits your needs.

How do I rent activities?

Activities need to be booked in advance. A schedule of all of your activities is required at least 2 weeks to 1 month in advance. Mile High will need to approve the activity schedule and the total bill will be created.

What if our group has special dietary needs?
At this time, we create all menus to suit the needs of all groups in We do our best to accommodate all of our guests needs, including dietary restrictions, however please keep in mind that our dining services operate as a commercial kitchen. So, if you or another guest has special dietary restrictions such as gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan, or mild food allergies/sensitivities, you must report these in advance to us. Combination allergies, soy allergies, and some severe allergies will require that guests bring their own meal and snack substitutions to camp.
