Forest Service clears path for permit for Ajax Adventure Camp in Aspen

The Aspen-Sopris Ranger District of the White River National Forest has released a draft decision notice and finding of no significant impact for the Ajax Adventure Camp special-use permit environmental assessment.

The children’s summer camp is based out of Aspen. It offers a service to the community that is aligned with the Forest Service’s policies and goals — to connect children to their national forest through outdoor experiences and education.

The proposed action would allow the Forest Service to issue Ajax Adventure Camp a 10-year priority use Outfitter and Guide Permit. The camp would be allowed 1,500 user days per year at 10 specific locations in the forest outside of Aspen.

The draft decision initiates a 45-day objection period. The environmental assessment, draft decision notice and finding of no significant impact are available for download on the White River National Forest website at http://www.fs.usda.gov/project/?project=47757. The file includes a link for objections.
