Cheley Colorado Camps in located in Estes Park, Colorado at the gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park. Since 1921, Cheley has welcomed children from around the world. Campers spend their days exploring the Colorado Rockies. Our programs include hiking, backpacking, horseback riding, technical climbing, mountain biking, stand-up paddle boarding, riflery, archery, crafts, sports, and more. The Cheley Experience is a four week program. Four weeks allows campers to unwind, get in shape, and do something that makes this rocky mountain summer camp experience one to remember. Each camp unit creates a Code of Living, a personal code of honor that everyone in the unit agrees to follow. Striving for ideals such as fair play, honesty, enthusiasm and good character is a priority at Cheley Colorado Camps - and so is having fun. There is a distinct beginning, middle and end to this Colorado outdoor summer camp experience in order for the entire program to unfold.

How We Accommodate International Campers

In 2014, we had campers from twenty-four countries and forty-five states of the United States of America. Campers love the opportunity to learn about different cultures and beliefs. We pick up our campers at Denver International Airport where they will board transportation to Cheley Camps. The trip to camp is about 90 minutes. Our international campers will feel comfortable since there are campers from many other states. We provide a weekly report for the parents as well as posting daily photos online allowing parents a window into the camp experience.
