Rocky Mountain Soccer Camps, Inc. - 1971 to 2023

Hey Everyone!

Mark and Tarla here on February 10, 2023.

We would like to announce that after 31 years, we have made the decision not to schedule any groups this Summer and retire from running the Rocky Mountain Soccer Camps. Also, after 16 years of holding residential camps here in Victor, we have put the historic Victor School property up for sale and will be moving on to new adventures!

Artie Wachter, who founded the RMSC in 1971, retired and sold the camp business to us when he was 60 years old. Now we are both 60, so I guess we are following in his footsteps in more ways than one!

To the literally thousands of players and coaches who have been a part of the RMSC experience over the past 52 years, we sincerely thank you and hope that it has made a positive impact on your lives.

We would also like to thank the City of Victor, the restaurant and business owners, the Victor Penguins Hockey Club, and the friends we have made, for accommodating our camps and helping us to weave the RMSC into the fabric of the historic gold mining town.

We won’t be giving out anymore “Red Socks,” but there is one final “Blue Jersey” that I would like to award. It goes to Tarla, for her sacrifice and amazing, unsung, selfless effort over the past 31 years. She really deserves hundreds of blue jerseys as without her, none of this would have been possible!

With that, it is now time for us to say “Goodbye” to the Rocky Mountain Soccer Camp and to Victor, Colorado. We thank God for the opportunity, ability, and endurance to provide high-quality soccer camp programs for such a long time. Our motto that we use to wrap up each camp is certainly appropriate here: We are, without a doubt, leaving “Tired and Inspired!”
