In 1962, the Colorado Christian Service Camp, Inc. became a corporation, purchased the Rocking R Sky Ranch in 1964 and established a Christian youth ministry. Today the camp offers summer residential camps, off-site adventure camps and year-round retreat facilities. Located only 45 minutes from Breckenridge and Summit County, Camp Como is convenient for ski groups.

In the summer of 2014, Camp Como celebrated its 50th year with worship services, live music, campfires, loads of outdoor activities along with many opportunities to reminisce with one another about the changes the camp has undergone over the years. The event was very well attended and it was wonderful to have a former director and campers of all ages attend our jubilee celebration.

Camp Como is also steeped in Colorado history. The original ranch house is built from logs cut in 1886 and is available today for resident camper lodging. We call it “The Homestead” cabin. In the 1840s, Kit Carson trapped beaver in the Tarryall River basin located behind the camp. A few years later, in that same river basin, many gold and silver mines were established. The town of Como, one mile below camp, was an important narrow-gauge rail center during mining boom days.
