Church Groups

Nestled in the pines of Pike National Forest, Camp Elim offers a retreat environment that will enhance your program in every way. Someone has said that "Camp is where life makes up its mind." Let us assist you in directing your ministry group down the path that leads to the richness of the abundant life promised to those who know Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.


"We are so grateful for the part Camp Elim has played in the young lives of the children of First Presbyterian Church. For many years now we have chosen Camp Elim for our children's camps and retreats. God's love is evident in every phase of their camping program. We see the Holy Spirit working through their committed leadership, capable staff, excellent facilities, delicious meals, cooperative attitude, and accommodating spirit."


Those words of encouragement are from the former Children's Music Minister at First Presbyterian Church in Colorado Springs. We have enjoyed a strong partnership in ministry for over 20 years!


It is our privilege to partner with church groups from around the state by hosting retreats and conferences for children, teens, families, and adults. We'll provide the meals and housekeeping while you provide the program and teaching. While our facilities are primarily geared for youth, we also have an assortment of private and semi-private (shared bathroom) accommodations available. Campers bring their own bedding (sleeping bag or sheets/blanket, pillow and towels) or for a nominal charge we can provide them for all but our dormitory rooms.


Exclusive use of Camp's facilities is offered to groups of 50 or more that are the first to book their retreat. The deposit for weekend groups is $500 and for week-long camps the deposit is $1000. Groups may be asked to bring volunteers to help with food service who will be on duty about one hour before, during, and after each meal.


Groups are expected to adhere to the policies set forth in our Retreat Guidelines. A copy of our guest group packet can be requested by emailing or calling (719) 687-2030. We are happy to assist youth groups coming for more than 72 hours in meeting the licensing standards set by the Colorado Department of Human Services.
