Nestled within Pike National Forest is the beautiful campus of Quaker Ridge Camp and Conference Center. Looking out at the incredible vistas of Pikes Peak, our campers will enjoy a specialized program of activities like nothing they have experienced before.

The Circle A Camp program is filled with all the fun camp activities you’d expect, but our focus is on something more. Through these activities, we teach campers leadership skills, teamwork, positive attitudes and productive communication. In the daily seminars, with speaker Skip Ross, they will learn life skills like handling fear, goal setting, building positive relationships, developing a proper self-image, and finding balance in life.

Teams will participate in a rotation of different events each day so there is always something new and fun to do! Some of our activities include: Zip Lines, Horses, Basketball, Drama, Swimming, Volleyball, High Ropes Course, Soccer, Mountain Hikes, Softball/Baseball, Field games, Ultimate Frisbee, Team Building, Archery Range, Ping Pong, Arts and Crafts, Frisbee Golf and so much more!

In Circle A’s positive environment, they will receive encouraging communication from our team, build life long friendships and grow a new outlook on life and their achievements!
