"Where you’re coming from is not nearly as important as where you’re going", states one of the mottoes of Cheley Colorado Camps, illustrating their commitment to build character, promote leadership and develop teamwork skills for the days to come. Campers are given the freedom to create their own schedules - an approach that keeps activity groups open and flexible. As a result, campers not only learn how to make decisions and be in charge for what they do in the camp, but also meet as many peers and staff as possible and make new friends.
The Cheley Mission states, "We build the lasting character and resiliency of young people, creating unique life experiences in a challenging and nurturing natural environment."
For more than 90 years now, Cheley Colorado Camps aims to “send you home feeling good about who you are”. With the guidance of dedicated leaders, boys and girls find enthusiasm and inspiration to pursue their dreams long after the camp is over.
Cheley Colorado Camps is located in Estes Park Valley, on three separate sites and is surrounded by mountain peaks and forests. The beautiful terrain is a great source for inspiration to try something new and succeed in the numerous programs offered: backpacking, hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking, stand up paddle boarding, campfires, fishing, sports, crafts, rafting, climbing, target sports, outcamping, and a high ropes challenge course.
