The effort and time that goes into preparation for this summer camp for at-risk kids 13-16 is amazing. There are no paid staff members; everyone works on their own time, their own dime. The kids learn so much - cooperation in accomplishing tasks, how to meet and live with strangers for a week, and drug awareness and avoidance are just three. All the while they are having the time of their lives horseback riding, white water rafting, mountain biking, and hiking. It takes the cooperation of many to accomplish this little miracle in the mountains each year, from the Rawah Ranch which provides horse facilities and wranglers, to the Colorado Air National Guard, who as a public service contribute their time and excellent anti-drug program, to the firefighter/caterer who, with his family, serve as the gourmet providers of victuals, all the law enforcement officers, firefighters, and other community volunteers, and the president of this 501.c3 charitable organization. He and his wife put in countless hours over the entire year rounding up funding; finding, adapting, and repairing equipment; interviewing and educating the campers; and all the other countless details that go into a successful project. It's a wonderful, worthwhile, heart-warming annual project, and my wife and I are proud to be allowed to be a very small part of it.
