Give your child the summer of a lifetime!

We are so grateful for our current camp families and our alumni for spreading the word about the Cheley Experience. As parents ourselves, we realize people often look to their friends for quality programs for their children. Parents talk at school events, on sports fields, or at social gatherings about what other parents are doing that works for them. We would love for you to spread the word about the Cheley Experience. We have created a few options below so you don’t need to create your own email (just borrow ours and edit as you would like).

Option 1

For the past _____ summers, my children have been attending Cheley Colorado Camps in Estes Park, Colorado. While it is sometimes difficult for them to be away for that long, I know it is one of the best gifts that I can give my children. As a former camper at Cheley, I wanted to make sure my children had the same opportunity that I had to explore the Colorado Rockies.

We are all so fortunate to live in a wonderful community and to provide so many experiences for our children. I am honored that I can give them the chance to participate in after-school activities, athletics, and other programs. At the same time, I don’t want to overschedule them. There are many articles out there (http://www.gse.harvard.edu/news/uk/16/07/lessons-camp) about the benefits of the summer camp experience and the value of our children returning to nature. Children need a chance to slow down, connect with people from other communities (Cheley has campers from over 45 states and 18 foreign countries), and learn how to make their own decisions. Not to mention the much needed time away from devices and electronics.

Cheley Colorado Camps is just one of the many amazing summer camps available for young people. Check them out at www.cheley.com or you can watch their video here. If you want to talk more about our family’s experience, please let me know.

Option 2

I know many of you are starting to prepare for the summer for your children. I just wanted to share some information about a program we love in Colorado. They will be celebrating their 97th summer this year (same family has owned it since 1921). Our children love their time at camp and enjoy connecting with children from around the world. It also gives them a chance to slow down. There was a wonderful article the other day about the benefits of summer camp (http://www.gse.harvard.edu/news/uk/16/07/lessons-camp). Camp also gives them a much needed break from devices and electronics. There is a great movie out about the impact of these devices on our children (http://www.screenagersmovie.com/).
