Watch the video to learn more about Camp Colton.

Camp Colton is a treasured rite of passage for local children. Operated by Flagstaff Unified School District in partnership with Friends of Camp Colton (Friends), this off-grid residential outdoor environmental education center on the slopes of the San Francisco Peaks is an integral part of what it means to grow up in our community. The Forest Highlands Foundation and Friends share a strong commitment to transformative educational experiences as a way to support a brighter future. Together, we have expanded Camp Colton programs and increased student access. For Camp Colton to continue, the facilities, most more than 50 years old, need a significant update.

The Forest Highlands Foundation has committed $50,000 towards a new lodge at Camp Colton which will be recognized on the new Gear Lending Room. This investment will sustain and elevate the Camp Colton tradition for future generations.
