Challenge Aspen Military Opportunities (CAMO) programs give veterans and active-duty armed forces with a service-connected disability the chance to renew their camaraderie, climb out of their comfort zones, and return home with new skills and a fresh positive outlook on life.

Challenge Aspen invites active-duty service members & veterans who live with a service-connected disability to participate in adaptive recreation programs in the heart of the Colorado Rockies – Aspen. Nestled in the Roaring Fork Valley, this area offers some of the finest recreation opportunities in the country, and we make them accessible for anyone of nearly any ability level. Our recreation programs are made whole with the inclusion of health and wellness breakout sessions, planned downtime to relax and connect with others, and group dinners to finish up every day.

Thanks to generous donors, sponsors, and grants Challenge Aspen is proud to offer CAMO programs free of cost to accepted applicants. Please review the Participant Eligibility Guidelines, and retreat information below before submitting an application to make sure a CAMO program would be a good fit for you. If you have any questions regarding the CAMO program, please contact Nate, the program director, at ngillette@challengeaspen.org / 970-300-3396.

"CAMO has allowed me the opportunity, once again, to see that anything I truly put my mind to can be accomplished. For me CAMO is a lifesaving program, I’m thankful for its existence and I am very appreciative that I have been able to be a part of this tight knit family."
