Fort Lewis CollegeStudent Life Camp at Fort Lewis College is a life-changing experience set against the most beautiful backdrop imaginable. The school’s nickname, Colorado’s “Campus in the Sky,” is largely because of its lofty location in the beautiful San Juan Mountains. With beautiful, temperate weather and mountainous landscape, the campus seems to sit high above the rest of the world. For a Student Life camper, that means the right environment for focusing on God and having fun with friends in a week-long Christ-centered camp. The visually pleasing sandstone architecture reflects the cultural impact of the native Pueblo Indians, whose centuries-old towns give the region a unique historical quality not found at many other camp locations.
