Every year EPCCD sponsors a student to go to Camp Rocky. This is a week long camp in Divide Colorado that educates our youth ages 14-19 about conservation. This camp provides hands on education while having fun and being in the beautiful Divide Colorado environment. Call the office for more information or stop by to pick up an application!
