Easterseals Colorado's Rocky Mountain Village Camp (RMV) in Empire, Colorado is regarded as one of the top Easterseals camps in the country. RMV is fully accessible and used by more than 1,200 children and adults with disabilities throughout the year. RMV is about all the things children and adults CAN do -- campers enjoy swimming, fishing, overnight camping, outdoor cooking, travel camp, day trips, arts & crafts, sports and recreation, hiking, dances, music & drama, horse-back riding, and riding the zip-line. Our camp provides a safe, barrier-free environment for children and adults to experience all aspects of camp without usual limitations. During the off-season, RMV hosts seven R&R weekend respites at camp and also functions as a rental and retreat facilty for groups and individuals.
Through this COVID-19 pandemic, various scenarios have been created, analyzed, scrutinized, and evaluated to figure out how Easterseals Colorado could safely run summer camp at Rocky Mountain Village (RMV) under the regulations and guidelines provided by State authorities. After careful consideration, we have made a tough decision. For the first time in history, RMV will NOT be holding camp for the 2020 summer season. If we have learned anything through our long camp history, it’s that RMV and its campers ALWAYS persevere and we are looking forward to the time when we will be together again; fishing, hiking, crafting and ziplining.
On the other hand, we are excited to offer a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for you, your family, and the community to experience the joy of the outdoors at Rocky Mountain Village (safely) throughout the rest of 2020.

During the non-summer season, RMV provides 7 R&R weekends. Campers come up to Rocky Mountain Village to get away and relax while giving their families a short rest from care-giving. Stay tuned as we navigate the challenges of this pandemic. We will update you if/when we have a respite schedule for the upcoming winter season.
