About the event

The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) Camp SP-13  was established in the 1930s as part of the New Deal program. The camp and adjoining Morrison Park comprise 18 acres of the overall 640 acre Red Rocks Park. The camp houses one of the largest collections of intact CCC buildings in the United States; fourteen of the original fifteen buildings are extant along with most of the original landscape features. The location, setting and surrounding landscape maintain a high degree of integrity, making this an excellent example of cultural landscape offering a sense of place and time into the daily life of a Civilian Conservation Corps Camp. The men who lived at the camp built the nationally acclaimed Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Through the guided tour, this interpretation program offers a glimpse into the daily life and important contributions of the young men who worked at camp SP-13 and how they helped shape the parks and public lands we enjoy today. 

Meeting Directions: Please meet in the dirt parking lot before the bridge to Denver Mountain Parks Headquarters. Rangers will meet participants in the parking lot wearing green pants/shorts and a khaki top. This historic site is not open to the public. This is a unique opportunity to come tour one of the best preserved CCC Camps in the U.S!
