We'd love to hear from you! Please tell us your thoughts: My experience with CSM came from attending Sacred Heart in Boulder. I attended camp for one year as a camper (might have been 1976 or so), then went back for three years as a worker. In those three years, working with the likes of AJ Hermida, Tom Anderson, Larry Devereaux, Tim and Tom, and the Aguirre brothers, I had too much fun. From washing dishes and playing lumber jack, the climbs up Meeker and Longs, to eating pizza at Bob and Tony's, and the ever-infamous acquisition of a certain competitor's sign, it all added up to an experience I wish was still available for the Denver kids of today. Fr. Bob's twinkle was the best, and those years laid a strong foundation for me having a zest for life, doing the unusual, and living outdoors. It saddens me every time I drive past camp on my motorcycle, headed to Estes and points beyond, that the chapel sits on the rock, and the carcass of the lodge sits under the splendor of Meeker, unused and unavailable to kids so desperately in need of this sort of experience...
