Challenge Aspen Military Opportunities (CAMO)

The CAMO program is designed to empower and uplift veterans and active-duty armed forces members with service-connected disabilities through the camaraderie and shared experience of outdoor recreation. We invite our participants to beautiful Aspen/Snowmass, nestled in the heart of the Colorado Rockies. Here, we provide top tier adaptive instruction for a diverse range of exciting outdoor activities, tailored to individual abilities. We integrate health and wellness breakout sessions, dedicated time for relaxation, and shared meals to foster connections. 


CAMO is not just an adventure; it is a life-changing experience that enables veterans and active-duty armed forces members to discover new possibilities, refresh their mindset, and embrace all that life has to offerParticipation in CAMO takes place in 3 different ways – Western Slope Socials, Rocky Mountain Retreats, and Partner ProgramsLearn more by following the links below or contacting a staff member at / (970) 923-0578.

This was an incredible program highlighted by mind blowing skiing. I spent a week forgetting that I have a terminal illness and that is a gift that no one is able to give…but these folks did it! I haven’t smiled, laughed, and enjoyed myself like that since well before my diagnosis
