Q: What’s the weather like at camp?
The weather Bureau gives these annual averages for Fairplay which is 10 miles from Camp Como:
The average July temperatures: (min./max) 41/69 degrees F.
Humidity is very low in the mountains; 10% to 25% is common. It makes for a very comfortable climate at 10,000 feet elevation.
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.
