Family Camp Programs
Most agree an outdoor camp experience is very special — new friends, new adventures, new challenges and tons of fun. For the people we support, it’s much more than that. It’s an opportunity to step beyond society’s limiting labels and experience challenging outdoor activities in a loving and supportive environment.
Many camps offer programs during the summer months and holidays, including Memorial Day weekend and Christmas.
As one of our special friends proclaimed after completing a high ropes challenge over 40 feet in the air …
“God was shining a light on me to show me where to step next.”
Rainbow Valley Resource Network (RVRN) provides financial assistance to these dear friends who have chosen Christian Science as a way of life. Your donations help cover tuition and travel for those with special needs, so they can join their families for an unforgettable experience at a camp of their choosing.

Welcome to our 5th season at the A/U Ranches’ 100 Elk Outdoor Center in Buena Vista, Colorado. RVRN has worked closely with the staff of 100 Elk to create a family-friendly outdoor education program tailored to the unique needs of you and your loved ones.
As part of our effort to create a support network for families, RVRN is encouraging families to attend the event and participate alongside their loved ones.
What you can expect:
- Camper activities are flexible according to needs, interests and readiness levels. Favorite activities from past events include: horseback riding, hiking and ropes course
- Time for family connections and mingling
- Strong metaphysical focus through the activities
- On-site Christian Science Practitioner
- Parent and caregiver fellowship time for sharing experiences, challenges, resources and inspiration
- Meaningful Bible Lesson study
New this year We are exploring fun activities like yoga, a trip to the hot springs, carnival night, and chipmunk feeding in St. Elmo! All activities are adapted to meet the unique needs of each participant.
Tuition for this program is $750/person, which includes all meals, accommodations, activities, and transportation to/from the airport. Finances should not prohibit your family’s participation in this experience. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, financial assistance is available to cover up to the full cost of tuition and travel by completing the online Financial Assistance Application.
We deeply appreciate the alignment between the mission of RVRN and that of 100 Elk which is, “revealing the possibilities within.”
We look forward to seeing you!
