Camp Isaiah is a phenomenal experience. Those that have attended over the years have gone away feeling like they experienced something very special for that week of their life. 

At camp we seek to integrate the spiritual and athletic lives of youth. 

During the week: 

  • Campers stay in a gender separated dorm at 9,000 feet at Pingree Park, the Colorado State University mountain campus. Camper to leader ratio is usually 5 to 1 or better. 
  • The food is fantastic. 
  • We have daily devotionals and small group sessions that seek to teach kids the basics of Christian spirituality. (Camp Isaiah is non-denominational…see faith statement) 
  • We run epic, amazing, gorgeous, trails in the mountains of Colorado near Rocky Mountain National Park. 
  • We have clinics that teach kids the fundamentals of distance running. 
  • Elite distance runners and coaches occasionally show up to speak. 
  • We have a week long smorgasbord of games, fun and fellowship during the famous “Camp Isaiah Tournament of Champions”…where YES everyone is a winner as the prize pool is usually loaded with great prizes. We also have various entertainment provided by musical guests and dance groups. 
  • Each participant receives a goodie bag full of various items, most notably a camp logo hooded sweatshirt. 
  • Camp Isaiah seeks to provide kids a safe, fun environment to explore their interests in the Christian faith and distance running. We have wonderful leaders who are open minded, intelligent and caring. Our leaders job is not to tell a student what or how to believe in Jesus by presenting a bunch of rigid, preset guidelines or political beliefs that must be followed or else. It is the leaders job to facilitate a process that seeks to present the truth of the word of God from the Bible, provide healthy open discussion on how it pertains to their life… and then allow a student the dignity to wrestle with these truths and begin or continue to explore Christian spirituality.

    Two of my three kids have been to Camp Isaiah and my youngest is going for the first time this summer. Running up Mummy Pass has become a rite of passage in my family. Everything about this camp feels good. The beautiful setting is the perfect place to get closer to God, build life-long friendships, AND improve your running. (My kids even loved the food.)

    My daughter, Bri, attended camp Isaiah three times during her high school running career. The experience was outstanding. She looked forward to Camp Isaiah with more excitement than even her birthday. The kids are great as are the coaches and other counselors. The training ( both physical and spiritual) were life changing. I would highly recommend this camp. I only wish they had an adult version.

    Camp Isaiah has been an incredible experience every year I have attended. Getting up into the mountains and getting to know new friends and grow closer to God all at the same time is certainly amazing. Each of the four years i went brought me incredible joy just to be up there in Pingree Park. I would highly recommend this camp for anyone-runner or not.

    Camp Isaiah is a week that I look forward to every single year and it has played an integral role in my running and spiritual life. I've met lifelong friends here, encountered Jesus in deeper ways and grown as an athlete. Pingree Park is absolutely beautiful, the trails are fantastic and the positive atmosphere is even better. The best way I can describe Camp Isaiah is that it is a little glimpse of heaven.
