Cheley Colorado Camps (2nd Term)
July 11 - August 6
Owned and operated by the same family since 1921, Cheley provides a top-rated 27-day overnight summer experience for girls and boys ages 9-17. Activities include hiking, backpacking, horseback riding, rafting, mountain biking, and more.
Cheley Colorado Camps is a family-owned, overnight summer camp that was started in 1921 by Frank H. Cheley. We are youth development professionals focused on having a positive lasting impact. Comprised of outdoor adventures, horseback riding, athletics, target sports, fine & performing arts, and aquatics, “We build the lasting character and resiliency of young people, creating unique life experiences in a challenging and nurturing natural environment.” A summer at Cheley Colorado Camps means spending time hiking, backpacking, horseback riding, rafting, paddleboarding, mountain biking, and playing in the beautiful Rocky Mountains. Offering two traditional 4-week terms, a 5-night program for younger campers interested in a taste of camp, a family camp, and more, Cheley hosts over 1,200 campers each summer with ~220 seasonal staff and a small team of year-round staff. People 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. Cheley campers also develop nurturing and trusting relationships with counselors who serve as positive role models in their job as youth development professionals. The Rocky Mountains are the playground for Cheley’s free-choice program. This is what makes Cheley a top-rated summer camp and we intend on improving every year. Cheley Colorado Camps is accredited by the American Camp Association.
