Endowed Campership

The Craig I. Colvig Memorial Campership – Armed with a deep commitment to providing young people with a non-competitive environment, the personal challenges of living out of doors, creative fun, and lasting friendships, Craig and Mary Colvig took over an abandoned children’s camp outside of Durango, CO in the summer of 1970. The following summer they opened the current 600-acre campsite in the Red Creek Valley bordering the San Juan National Forest. Despite the loss of Craig and two staff members in a private plane crash in 1981, the Colvig Camp family rallied to continue Craig’s dream. The Craig I. Colvig Fund was created and is supported by past and present alumni and staff of CSC to continue Craig and Mary’s vision for young people. This money sends several deserving young men and women to camp each summer. Craig’s oldest son, Clay, with the help of Cassidy Colvig (the youngest son) and their families, still operate CSC with the same personal commitment to each and every camp family.
