Keeping Up With The Community | Episode 15 - Deer Creek Mountain Camp

​Tucked away in Friendship Ranch in Bailey is a mountain oasis known as Deer Creek Mountain Camp.  With a motto like, "Intentionally Simple," I just had to go see what they're all about.  You don't have to go far to find blissful mountain camping - it's right here in your backyard.

Our mission is to provide a mountain experience that's intentionally simple for families and groups. We don't have all the highly-programmed activities -- we don't want those things.  We want this to be a retreat, a mountain oasis, where people can relax and enjoy.

by Brent Kroeker, Owner of Deer Creek Mountain Camp

Keeping Up With The Community - American 3D Printing

Did you know that there is a 3D printing store right in Evergreen?

3D printing is a technology that is very common among engineers, but has not always been readily available to the public. It's a way to build real objects from digital files. How it works is the 3D printer converts a software blueprint into slices and deposits layer after layer of plastic, metal or other composites until the finished product is formed. Compared to traditional manufacturing methods like cutting, carving and drilling, it takes less time and raw material. 

So whether you're building a prototype for an invention, you need a custom part for your hot tub that you can't get from the manufacturer, or you want a really unique gift for someone, 3D printing can take your idea from a blueprint to a tangible product.

Mention you saw this interview and get a huge discount when you 3D print! Details inside.
