Room & Board: Campers stay on-campus in dorms within walking distance to dining halls. Three to four campers per suite in air-conditioned dorms. All meals are catered to campus or held in the new campus dining facility, the Roaring Fork.  Campers may bring extra snacks for their dorm room.

Currently, UCCS is building a brand new indoor track facility and it will be ready for camp. We are looking forward to spending most of our tactical/strength/and guest speaker sessions in this new facility.  The Mountain Lion Fieldhouse will be a wide-radius 200-meter, six-lane flat track with an eight-lane, 60-meter straightaway inside the oval.
