The Colorado Lions Camp and Conference Center is a project of the Lions Clubs from the state of Colorado. The camp is a year round facility providing summer programs for those with developmental and physical disabilities and winter programs available for larger and smaller groups.
The camp is nestled at 8,500 feet in the mountains of Pike National Forest, just 30-minutes west of Colorado Springs and four miles north of Woodland Park on Highway 67N.
We provide grants to the Colorado Lions Kidsight program. About 7-15% of kids screened - nearly 4 million - will be referred for a follow-up exam by an eye-care professional. Approximately 5% of all children in this age group will have amblyopia, a treatable disorder that can result in permanently reduced vision when not addressed by an early age. The screening devices detect risk factors for amblyopia, such as strabismus (eyes that cross or wander out), refractive errors and unequal vision between the two eyes, and potentially even more serious issues such as cataracts and eye cancer.
With just minutes of training, any Lion or volunteer can screen the vision of a child. Just push a few buttons and the screening devices used in KidSight do all the work for you. Screening devices even generate the results immediately for easy management of screening results. It's simple, it's fun, and there's nothing more rewarding then helping a child!
Members of the Denver Five Points Lions Club stuffed dozens of free backpacks with school supplies for K-12 students in the Five Points neighborhood. This Annual Community Appreciation Day started in 1987 and is funded by a fish fry or BBQ dinner along with a co-sponsorship from the Colorado Lions Foundation. Denver Five Points Lions give away hot dogs, chips and refreshments, along with pony rides for small children.
