La Junta is well known for the strong sense of independence, self-image and self-confidence that is instilled in each camper. We ensure these successes by maintaining an all-boys program, retaining individual activity preferences and schedules and de-emphasizing head-to-head competition. Our program is designed throughout – from counselor training, to program director follow-up – to ensure the personal attention necessary from counselors to make certain that camp is successful, exciting, educational and rewarding for every boy.
With over 80 years of experience, we can confidently say that we are among the best summer camps anywhere. Our program has stood the test of time and has evolved in response to the changing needs of today’s youth. Each boy has a unique schedule based on his age and preferences rather than remaining with one cabin group all day. We stress individual accomplishment over team competition. We remain “all boys”, avoiding the social pressures of coed relationships. Our safety record is superior and our fees remain among the most affordable values in the nation! We are unique in that ALL facets of the La Junta experience strive to improve your son’s independence, self-image and self-confidence. If that weren’t enough, the programs options change each summer so that each camper has a different experience every summer. We are confident that the program is working because nearly 90% of our campers return each year for another go ’round! The national average is close to 60%.
See for yourself. Trust us with your son this summer!
