Welcome to Camp Colton!
Camp Colton is a residential environmental education center that is owned by the Flagstaff Unified School District (FUSD). FUSD created the program (previously known as Project L.I.F.E.- Life In the Flagstaff Environment) in 1971 to introduce children to the local environment and increase their understanding of science and nature through outdoor experiences.
“FUSD students attend Camp Colton at no cost as an integrated part of their science studies. Accompanied by their classroom teachers and taught by the Camp’s staff of environmental educators, students spend four-days and three-nights at Camp Colton learning about the natural environment through experiential and inquiry-based classes, field expeditions, and presentations by local science agencies and organizations. Campers also enjoy recreational activities and outdoor experiences such as hiking, campfire songs, square dancing, games, arts and crafts, and the adventures associated with outdoor and off-grid living.”
