Hey, Camp Fans!
Looking for a great place where you can send your camper? Well, it just so happens I have an amazing summer camp to brag about today! Everything Summer Camp is more-than-happy to present a camp with whom we have had the pleasure of doing business—Cheley Colorado Camps for boys and girls.
Named after the tight-knit family that’s been keeping the camp in excellent operation since 1921, “Cheley is about doing things you never thought you’d do.” Cheley is located on three separate sites: Land O’ Peaks Ranch just south of Estes Park—then Boys’ Trail’s End as well as Girl’s Trail’s End on two ranch properties 12 miles east of Estes Park.
Here, among the snow-capped peaks of the Rocky Mountains and the majestic pine forests, Cheley campers are encountered with endless opportunities to climb billion-year-old slabs of rock, hike the scenic shaded forests, bike the mountainous terrain and tundra, and so much more!
Cheley is an adventure camp. It takes time for campers to allow themselves to settle in, wind down, get in shape, develop friendships, and do all the fun stuff that makes a summer session an unforgettable experience. That’s why Cheley’s camp sessions are four weeks long. In this enchanting environment, four fun weeks go by very quickly.
Throughout those four weeks, campers take great advantage of Cheley’s five western horseback riding rings with 146 beautiful horses, climbing walls and giant rock slabs, a gymnasium, basketball courts, Riflery ranges, archery ranges, 50 awesome mountain bikes, a pottery studio, wood shop, lush amphitheater that boasts a lighted stage, the soccer field adjacent to the aspen grove, the weight room, fishing pond, arts and crafts studio, and more!
With so many opportunities, Cheley campers are sure to face new challenges. But just as important as WHAT’s there—camp is about WHO’s there! Cheley campers build their confidence throughout a summer stay and learn what it means to be a part of a community. Forming new relationships is a huge part of camp that teaches trust, support, and self-reliance. Check it out for yourself sometime and, as always, thanks for reading!
