Cheley Colorado Camp, Colorado
Since 1921, Cheley has been committed to introducing children to the outdoors and providing a challenging and nurturing environment for children to explore. They believe that every summer in a young person’s life is a window of opportunity.
Cheley is located at the gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park. The facilities are steeped in tradition as many of them were built in the 1920s and 1930s. Campers sleep in log cabins or covered wagons and hang out in beautiful log constructed lodges. With over 1600 acres of property, Cheley camps has 5 horse riding rings, a climbing wall, four barns with 140 horses, a challenge course, a fishing pond and much more.
What we love:
Activities include hiking, horseback riding, backpacking, river rafting, mountain biking, technical climbing, archery, riflery, sports, crafts and woodworking. The campers get to spend the summer in the Rockies with campers from over 40 states and 10 foreign countries. Campers often say they feel more alive, more connected and more themselves at Cheley, whether they are playing on a snowfield high in the Rockies, or cantering bareback around a riding ring.
Imagine waking up every morning at 8,000 feet in elevation to the beckoning of snow-capped peaks. Children come home and they are more mature, more confident, and they make their bed -- at least for a few weeks after they get home. Cheley also posts daily pictures and articles to their website to keep the parents connected to the camp experience.
