Who should go to camp?

It is recommended that all students try to attend camp sometime between their sophomore and senior year. Which of the three years to go is best decided by the student and parent based on that student’s needs. Camp is one of the most rewarding experiences students and staff can have while at Douglas County High School.

When is camp offered?

Currently Camp DC runs two times a year - a Fall camp and a Spring camp.

Where does camp take place?

Camp DC is held at YMCA Shady Brook, a retreat center, located in Deckers, Colorado.

What kind of supervision is there at camp?

Students are chaperoned by eight to ten DCHS staff members while at camp. Each camper is placed in a counsel group of approximately 11 other campers.

Where do the campers sleep?

Boys and girls are housed in separate dorms at the camp.

Is food provided?

Shady Brook is fully staffed with a first class kitchen crew preparing well balanced meals for the campers. Campers are allowed to eat as much as they like. Students with special dietary needs will be provided alternate options.

What rules apply to the students while at camp?

While the students are at camp they fall under all the expectations that apply when they are at any Douglas County High School function. No drugs, alcohol, or tobacco products are allowed at Shady Brook. If students violate this expectation, parents will be notified immediately to pick up their student and take them home; students will also face school consequences.
