A Denver-based company plans to open a summer camp atop the Grand Mesa east of Grand Junction.

Gravity Haus will operate the camp on private property at Electric Mountain Lodge.

“At Gravity Haus, we envision the planet as a playground that fuels amazing experiences, personal growth and camaraderie with fellow adventurers. And what better way to live this vision than to build a summer camp in Western Colorado,” said Jim Deters, founder and chief executive officer of Gravity Haus.

“Everyone has memories from summer camp as a kid. We’ve built this Gravity Haus summer camp atop the amazing Grand Mesa with the very same spirit of adventure, growth and connection in mind,” Deters said.

Seven domes — each of which can accommodate up to four people — will be available to reserve between June 25 and Sept. 27. Gravity Haus members will pay $62.50 a night on Sundays through Wednesdays and $125 a night Thursdays through Saturdays. Nonmembers will pay $125 a night on Sundays through Wednesdays and $250 a night on Thursdays through Saturdays.

The domes will be located a short walk away from the Electric Mountain Lodge restaurant serving farm-to-table fare from Western Colorado. The property offers access to more than 300,000 acres of forest land.

Camp activities will include yoga classes at the lodge as well as fishing; hiking; mountain biking; rafting; and tours of local farms, ranches and wineries.

The summer camp will be the second for Gravity Haus, which also opened a spring camp near Canyonlands National Park south of Moab in Utah. Gravity Haus Vail opened in December Gravity Haus Winter Park is scheduled to open this summer.

The company offers places to stay, train and work as well as a subscription service offering access to adventure travel, group fitness programs and outdoor equipment.
