Ajax Adventure Camp’s mission is to Inspire Awesomeness. Ajax Adventure Camp is not your typical kids camp. The camp philosophy is to give campers the freedom to craft their own adventure by choosing from about a dozen activity offerings every morning and another dozen activity offerings after lunch (lunch is provided of course!).
There are 100’s of different activities offered throughout the summer including: Rock Climbing, Paddle boarding, Paint-balling, Rafting, Archery, Robotics, Canoeing, Mountain Biking, Fishing, Rockets, Paintchery, Marmot Tag, Skateboarding, Camping, Small animals, Sportz, Arts & Crafts, Tenkara Fly Fishing, and 100’s more.
Registration options include punch passes (pick and choose what days throughout the summer you would like to attend) and week-long enrollment.
Campouts depart every Friday and tend to fill up quickly, so reserving a space for those ahead of time is important

There will also be special activities at the Ranch Camp such as Mtn. Go-Carts for some off-road fun. All weeks will have the staple sleepaway activities, but through unique partnerships we will offer a few special weeks like Survival Skills and Animal Tracking with the Aspen Center for Environmental Studies (ACES).
The Ranch is nestled in the Rockies about 1 hour from Aspen. We provide transportation from Aspen for all campers.
