Q: What’s the weather like at camp?

The weather Bureau gives these annual averages for Fairplay, 10 miles from Camp Como:
The Average July temperatures: (min./max) 41/69 degrees F.
The Average January temperatures: (min./max) 9/29 degrees F.
The Average annual snow fall: 84".
Humidity is very low in the mountains; 10% to 25% is common. It makes for a very comfortable climate at 10,000 feet.

 

Q: Should I be worried about altitude sickness?

Everyone feels the effects of less oxygen at 10,000 feet elevation when they are physically active. Some folks develop a headache and a few people feel nauseous. Symptoms may persist from a few hours to a couple of days. By drinking lots of water and taking it easy the first day to acclimate, almost everyone can tolerate the altitude. If you are prone to altitude sickness, your family doctor may be able to prescribe medication to ward off the more unpleasant symptoms of altitude sickness.

 

Q: What are the "check in" and "check out" times?

We start receiving “check ins” from 3pm to 5pm on the first day of camp and “check out” times are at 10am on the last day of camp.
