A summer at Cheley Colorado Camps means spending your summer hiking, backpacking, horseback riding, and playing in the beautiful Rocky Mountains. Wake up each morning to freshmountain air, views of peaks that soar to 14,000 feet, and the laughter of your fellow campers. Since 1921, Cheley Colorado Camps has welcomed more than 50,000 young people from every state and more than a dozen countries, including many second, third and now fourth generation Cheley campers.

Families choose Cheley because they know they can expect an experience of exceptional richness, quality and consistency in a community that celebrates the individual interests and needs of each participant. Camp lies 75 miles northwest of Denver on the 750-acre Land O' Peaks Ranch south of Estes Park, surrounded by the snow-capped peaks and forests of Rocky Mountain National Park, Indian Peaks Wilderness Area, Roosevelt National Forest and Rawahs Wilderness area.

Cheley operates its backcountry program on permits from the National Park Service and the Forest Service. In addition to the Land O' Peaks Ranch, Cheley owns 5 more locations totaling approximately 700 acres. Two of these locations are the site of two additional camper units while the other three locations serve as overnight camping spots. No matter how many years you come to camp, its tough to see it all.

In Rocky Mountain National Park alone, more than 600 miles of trails wind through sunlit meadows of wild flowers, cool forests, brilliant snow fields and vast boulder fields to high country lakes, ponds, glaciers and rivers and peaks that soar to 14,000 feet. Cheley's facilities include five horseback riding rings, a climbing wall, a gymnasium, a fleet of 40 mountain bikes, a ropes course, a grassy amphitheater with a lighted stage, a soccer field beside an aspen grove, a weight room, a fishing pond, and facilities for working with leather, paints, fibers and wood. Camp buildings are rich in tradition and steeped in memory.

Handsome lodges and snug log cabins dating to the 1920s merge gracefully with the rocky landscape, offering stunning views at every turn. Facilities and grounds are constantly improved and scrupulously maintained for the safety, comfort and enjoyment of campers and staff.
