The Canteen is open each afternoon during free swim. A selection of t-shirts, souvenirs, ice cream, beverages, candy and salty snacks are available.  Campers are limited to 2 sugary snacks each day (sugary snacks refers to candy and soda).  Pretzels, ice cream, nuts, trail mix and a variety of baked chips are also available.

You may deposit canteen money to your camper’s account online prior to your camper's arrival

  • ​Access your Parent Account

  • Click on the View Accounts section

  • Select your camper and click "Fund"

  • Enter in an amount and your credit card information, click "Fund Account"


​We recommend a $40 deposit for snacks/drinks and camp tshirt or souvenir. For campers staying over the weekend, we recommend an $90 deposit.


For safekeeping, please DO NOT allow campers to keep money in the cabin. 


ALL medications (including vitamins) must be given to the nurse on opening day at check-in.

  • Prescription drugs must be in the original container with current dosage clearly stated on the container.

  • If your camper requires any non-prescription drugs such as Zyrtec etc., these medications should also be in the original container in order to provide the camp nurse with all the appropriate medication information.  The Health Center is stocked with basic Tylenol and Ibuprofen etc. so it is not necessary to bring these to camp.


Keeping ALL medications out of the cabin helps ensure the safety of all campers.  All unused medications will be placed in your camper’s luggage on closing day.



​​You can write a couple of letters or cards and leave them with us on Check-In Day.  Just write on the envelope the camper’s name, cabin name, the day to deliver it, and we’ll deliver to your camper during lunch on that day. 

Please do not mail or drop off packages for campers, especially avoid food & snacks that might attract critters to the cabins. 

You can also send one-way emails to your campers at no charge. This information will be given to you at check-in.


It's always exciting to see your child enjoying Camp Carson, and we take thousands of pictures throughout the week. 


Prior to camp, you will receive a link to our web photo provider, so you'll have access to new photos every day. 


Having a birthday while you're at camp can be pretty special. We have decorations for the camper's cabin, and sing Happy Birthday to celebrate the special camper in the Dining Hall.
