Camp Colorado

HFH of Colorado hosted our 9th Camp Colorado conference in Keystone, Colorado from May 9-11, 2018. This year’s theme was Mission Possible and speakers focused on what it takes to make the Habitat for Humanity mission possible in an affiliate’s community. This year for the first time HFHI explored a new partnership concept that would expand HFHI’s involvement in a number of SSO conferences.  HFHI selected HFH Colorado due to its previous track record of a well-attended multi-state conference, conference venue and quality of workshops offered.  HFHI has made an investment in financial support as well as a commitment for increased HFHI staff participation as well as HFHI senior leadership attendance.

Highlights of the conference included the Executive Director Retreat, Welcome Reception, Collaborative Operating Model Plenary, Exhibit Hall, I- Spy Mystery Award Dinner and the Breakfast Club.

There was a wonderful turn out of over 225 attendees from 49 affiliates across the states of Colorado, New Mexico, Montana, Utah, Kansas, Wyoming, Nebraska, South Dakota and California.

Stay tuned for dates for Camp Colorado 2020!
