The Band Boosters operate the concession stand at the Rock Springs camp meeting ground site in Denver each summer. Often refereed to as the “Shack”, the concession stand is open each night during the 2 weeks of camp meetings, usually in July/August. The stand offers a wide range of food items from hamburgers, to ice cream, milkshakes and candy. This is a one of the most significant fundraisers that the boosters coordinate, and many volunteers are needed to run this event run successfully.
Taking orders, Money, making milkshakes, sno-codes, serving drinks, selling candy and toys, washing dishes, making cotton candy, popping popcorn.

Directions to the Shack
From 73/16: Drive N. After Food Lion Westport, go to the 4th stoplight (Stacey’s Restaurant will be on the corner as well as Bank of America), turn right, drive about ½ mile, Turn into the first street to your left; the Shack is the first building on the right
From 150/16: Drive S. to the first stoplight (about 3 mi.) Stacey’s is on the left; turn left. Follow the above directions.
Where to Park
After turning into the campground, try to park in the grass to your LEFT. Late arrivals may need to follow the street until you find a space in the back. Please do not park in front of the buildings; those spaces are for the camp attendees. NEVER park behind the Shack unless it is to drop off and leave. It is a good idea to bring a FLASHLIGHT for the walk to your car after dark.
The Band Boosters work very hard to make this fundraiser successful for the Band throughout the year. We follow the bi-laws of the campground and always receive excellent ratings all around. Whether you are tent camping, visiting a tent, or just driving by, come see us for dinner on your way home from work, or our “Famous” Milkshakes!
