Questions about living at the ranch? We've got you covered!

Staff Housing

  • If you are locked out of your room or need assistance, please call the Front Desk (0) to radio the RA on duty or security after hours.
  • Quiet hours are from 11PM until 7AM. Only residents assigned to a room may be in the room at that time. Guests are not allowed in staff housing during quiet hours.
  • Smoking in your room or any building is absolutely prohibited. Smoking is only allowed outside of staff housing at least 15 feet from the building.
  • Bunk beds cannot be taken apart ($50 fee if they are). Ask Housing for permission to move any furniture.
  • All rooms will be inspected regularly. All residents must check-out of their room properly before they leave or a fine is charged. Download and print the Express Staff Checkout Form for checkout procedures.
  • Non-authorized staff are not allowed on Camp Chief Ouray premises during the Summer.
  • Cleaning supplies are located in the closet next to the stairs by the parking lot in Blue Ridge, in the closet at the front entrance of Pinewood and in each bathroom in Bays.

Cleaning Assignments

As part of living in community, we ask that each resident assist in the upkeep and cleanliness of the dorms. Please look for your cleaning assignments posted weekly on the dorm bulletin boards for Blue Ridge or in the bathrooms for Bays residents. Pinewood residents may find information for cleaning assignments in Jody’s Ark.


There are computers with free internet access available for staff use in the Religious Activities Center (RAC). The RAC is open from 7:00 AM to 11:00PM every day. You may also use the computers at the Library. Call extension 4143 to verify the schedules for the day. WiFi is available in Bays, Blue Ridge, Pinewood and in other major buildings on the property. No password is required to access the internet.

Meals & Sack Lunches

All seasonal staff may eat for free at The Commons. Staff may also pay a discounted price to eat at the Buckboard Grill or Skinny Ski Café (Skinny Ski is open in winter only). The Buckboard Grill also has a small grocery section with various snacks and toiletries available for purchase. If you are going to be gone for the day and will miss lunch, you may sign-up online by 1PM two days before you need it for a sack lunch from the Grill by clicking here. Sack lunches count as a meal for employees. Guests related to Staff have discounted prices in Commons. Staff must always wear their Employee ID’s for meals in Commons and while working.
