Preparing for Peak Challenge

The basic elements

Location

Location: Camp Hale, Colorado is located 14 miles NW of Leadville, Colorado on Highway 24. Please take Highway 24 north out of Leadville and watch for the signs that will guide you to the gravel road leading to the campground.

Camping

Camping: Camp Hale, Colorado is tent camping only. It sits at 9,200 feet above sea level. Be prepared for high 30s at night and low 60s throughout the day, with rain showers in the afternoon. Sleeping bags, rain flys, lanterns, mats or cots, as well a good camp chair, is essential.

Hiking

Hiking: Hiking at altitudes of 10,000 to 14,000 feet will require you to get in shape in order to best experience Peak Challenge. Start cardio training NOW if you are not already regularly exercising! We will have an optional hike on Saturday and the all group hike on Sunday. Suggested gear would include comfortable hiking or running shoes, a good pair of quick drying non-cotton socks,  a hydration pack, sunglasses and sunscreen, a hat, rain gear for afternoon showers and trekking poles.

Food

Food: Other than the Friday night group meal and the Sunday lunch at the trail head following the hike, your meals are on your own. Some cook in camp. Others go into Leadville, Red Cliff, Vail or Frisco to eat at one of many restaurants. Leadville has a Safeway grocery store in town for all supplies. You should work with the guys you are coming out with to plan what you will do for food.

Schedule

Schedule: Men will arrive on Thursday afternoon and get set up.Thursday night orientation will follow. Friday and Saturday are generally free to do excursions. Each night will involve a large group time and small group campfire time. Sunday morning is the main hike and Sunday night is the Celebration Event. Men make their way home on Monday. A detailed schedule will be shared with all registrants.

Transformation

Transformation: God.Men.Mountains.Legacies.  God has shown us over the years that when men prepare themselves for an encounter with the Living God and open their hearts, minds and soul to experience Him in the mountains, He will bring about transformational change. Change that ripples through a man, his family, his work and his community. Make no mistake – this is not a vacation but rather a special time to see transformation in your life.
