Summer is finally here and the Cheley Colorado Camps are prepared for another incredible summer, thanks to a lot of hard work from our pre-camp crew and full time staff. These counselors and support staff workers arrived to Cheley in mid May and were greeted by 48 hours of constant snowfall as they logged, raked, cleaned and set up the entire camp for Cheley’s 91st summer. Also, for the last week, the counseling staff has been going through a rigorous training session for their respected program areas as well as working with children in general. Renowned child psychologist Dr. Bob Ditter has facilitated numerous workshops, preparing counselors for the many situations arising with campers. Everyone is ready and enthusiasm is high, as we await the arrival of this year’s campers.
Tomorrow, the campers will be arriving to Cheley. For many, this will be a returning journey to the Rocky Mountains where adventures are certain to continue. For others, this will be their first time at camp, away from home. Regardless of past summers, Cheley will be sure to provide unique experiences for all in a nurturing natural environment.
