Overnight Camps - Now at Wilderness Ranch in Lakeside, AZ.
Due to the extremely dry weather in northern Arizona, as of
5/21/18, the US Forest Service has closed down areas up north for
public use until further notice. This closure impacts Camp
and the surrounding areas, meaning Montlure will be unable to utililze
the camping facility at Camp Colton.
In response to
the announcement from the US Forest Service, the Montlure Council and
staff are very excited to
announce Montlure will be moving to Wilderness
Wilderness Ranch offers a beautiful space
with multiple sleeping cabins, outdoor gathering and reception spaces,
a fully equipped commercial kitchen and dining hall and much more.
the move has created some logistical challenges, we are diligently
working over the next weeks to assure everything is ready, safe and in
place for our campers.
Within these challenges, we were faced
with a difficult decision based upon availabilty of Wilderness Ranch on
such short notice. We
will be moving JUNIORS CAMP from the third week of June to JULY 8th
through JULY 12th.
We understand there are many families who plan vacations
the Montlure camping timeframe. We also realize some school
districts begin their year in July. With that in mind, we
offer full refunds if your already registered Junior camper is no
longer able to attend. We are deeply sorry for any
this may cause.
However, by moving Juniors Camp to July, we will
be able to offer camp to many of our Traveling Day Camp
who might not have been able to attend overnight camp otherwise.
excited about the momentum and direction of the Montlure program.
This location change will not lessen the experience or dampen
of our energy in providing the best camping experience.
you have any immediate questions or concerns, please let us know and we
will answer in a timely manner. Please be on the lookout for
more updates and detailed information which will be sent
out as soon as it is available, such as bus locations and pick up/drop
off times which may be impacted due to the change in location.
will also be sending out a digitial welcome packet with all our
camping details for the summer.
In the meantime, check out the Wilderness
website, for directions and more information about the facilities.
We think you will be pleased with the accomodations as much
are with this new location.
