Our 27-day program is divided into four units for boys and four units for girls. We are a large camp, but this setup ensures a smaller camp feel and individualized attention. Offering the same renowned Cheley Experience, each unit is 57 to 70 campers in size with thirteen to sixteen staff and its own well-maintained lodge, boathouse, and living spaces. Campers participate in activities and campfires with their unit.
Our Lower units are a time for our youngest campers to enjoy camp life and learn the fundamentals of a wide range of activities. For many, it’s their first time at summer camp so we provide campers with the attention they need. It’s a chance for campers to develop a Code of Living and live in a caring community.
Our Middle units cater to both first-time campers and campers returning from our Lower units. You’ll have many opportunities to test your wings while enjoying the pure fun of camp life and time with one another. Campers develop a Code of Living and participate in activities that offer adventure and a definite sense of accomplishment.
Campers in our Senior units test their grit, create lifelong friendships, and develop a strong set of values. With the Code of Living as the cornerstone of this endeavor, our eldest campers are challenged appropriately and given leadership opportunities that transform teens into young, happy adults. During their final summer at camp, campers may join our Camper in Leadership Training program.
The age range at the Trail’s Ends provides a mature and nurturing family feel – with all of the activities we have to offer. Our TE campers develop their Code of Living in a setting modeled after the pioneer days of the rugged West. During their final summer at camp, campers may join our Camper in Leadership Training program.
The camp you select for your child will hopefully be the camp they call a second home for many years to come, which is why we offer Quarter B-4, our five-night introduction program. For children wanting a taste of the Cheley Experience, QB4 gives campers a window into Cheley and allows them to play and build independence. QB4 takes place once a summer and is split up into two units.
Families with children aged six and older can experience our Family Camp for five days of quality family time. Sleeping accommodations are covered wagons, which will sleep a family of four, but arrangements for larger families can easily be made. Families can choose to spend the day together riding horses or might head to Rocky Mountain National Park for a day hike while the children stay in camp and participate in crafts or riflery.
CHCO Burn Camp
A partnership with Children’s Hospital Colorado since 1983, Burn Camp is structured to meet the rehabilitative and psychosocial needs of children who have sustained a burn injury. Providing an enriched camp experience, Burn Camp creates the opportunity for survivors to share their stories and push themselves beyond what they thought was possible.
Discovery (School Retreats)
Each spring and fall, we host Discovery, overnight field trips that serve public and private schools for their outdoor education programming. Social-emotional learning, community building, and school spirit are essential to Discovery! Activities may include day hikes, rock climbing, low ropes course; fishing, fire building, group games, and more.
