Family Camp

Adventure

Ideal for: Families and Couples   |   Ages: All Ages   |   Dates: June 9th – August 10th

The path begins where the pavement ends.

Adventure is the best kind of family bonding.

A 5 day adventure camp experience where families and couples can deepen their relationships through unforgettable outdoor adventures in the mountains! Featuring top-notch food, comfy hotel-style rooms, inspiring speakers and exciting outdoor activities, Glorieta provides the perfect place to get away and focus on what matters.

Family time that transforms.

We work to provide an experience filled with exciting outdoor adventure and experiential learning, so that families can grow together and make irreplaceable memories. When families spend time outdoors and outside of their every day experience – they grow closer and learn new things about each other. Our hope is that every moment spent at camp is an opportunity for God to work in your family’s hearts.

By combining the camp experience with Biblical truths, families discover deeper relationships and spiritual growth within their families. Camp may end after a week, but the knowledge they gain can impact their families and communities for a lifetime.

Bomb the Blob!

Climb. Leap! Plop! Launch! Whoa! Splash! Climb. Leap! Plop! Launch! Whoa! Splash! Repeat again and again until we wear 'em out.

Outdoor Rock Climbing

If you're a thrill seeker who'd like to feel a little "boulder", we accommodate all skill levels in many different climbing styles. For those about to rock, we salute you!

Wilderness Hiking

There's adventure in each breath and every step. Let your wanderlust take over and experience spectacular vistas across miles of pristine mountain trails.

Mountain Bikes

Hop on and go for a spin that will leave you breathless in more ways than one. When you experience a mountainside ride, you'll know what we mean.

Arrow TAG

We are hunters, and adventure is our game. We are unstoppable, and you are our prey. Take aim and bring 'em down. Before they get you!

Mud Pit Melee

Grit your teeth for an untethered free-for-all. Here's mud in your eye... and between your toes... and behind your ears..

Whitewater Rafting

"Row! Row! Row! You lazy land lubbers! Heave ho and off we go! Steady as she goes." Will somebody smack that guide with a paddle?

Slingshots

These are no toys, but they are a lot of fun. We may not be slaying giants, but you will get good target practice. Take aim. Hold your breath. Steady. And...

Mini Golf

If putting around is your thing, we have the perfect way to pass an afternoon. This classic family sport is best under the pines, with a nice summer breeze.

Hiking

Thousands of acres and miles of trails through God's beautiful creation. Explore the trails and experience vistas that will take your breath away.

Climbing Grotto

Test your grip and your core strength on our Swiss army knife of climbing sweetness. This tower can test and inspire almost any level of climber.

Field Games

Guaranteed to break the ice. This is camp-olympics! From scavenger hunts to more inventive contests, you're sure to make a few new friends along the way.

Arts & Crafts

You'll leave with tan lines from all the beaded bracelets you've made and traded with your new besties. Get ready for paint under your nails and a bunch of souvenirs.

Ga-Ga Ball

Ga-ga wha? Trust us, it's not for babies. Part dodge ball, part tag and part king of the hill, it takes action to another level. Stay with it. Rule the octagon!

Dodgeball

There's nothing like the unmistakable tread of a new red dodgeball. It provides good grip. And a recognizable pattern on the side of your face. Respect the ball!

Obstacle Course

There's no easing into this, so jump right in! From there, you're climbing through our bouncy crash course. You'll love ducking, diving, and dodging to the end.

Sand Volleyball

Bring it on. Serve it up. Spike, slam, wham, attack - Let your competitive spirit take over. You'll need it. Dig, set, spin, spike! Leave the campfire for day's end.

Little Kid Zip

The high-flying thrill of our zip lines can be a lot. That's why we've developed a course that's just right for building confidence in our younger campers.

Rappelling

Your heart pounds as you overcome your nerves and step off the cliff. What were you thinking? Total focus. Step by step. Now you're down, confident. Again!

Bouldering Wall

One look at the kaleidoscopic wall and you'll think it’s easy. But it's like Crossfit for spider monkeys. It takes balance, footwork, and strategy in every move.

Basketball

There's nothing better than a game of high altitude hoops. Pick up moves with other campers from around the country, or take 'em to school like you do at home.

Coffee Shop

There's no fancy mermaid on these cups. This is real grounds for sittin' and sippin', Lower Rockies style. Order up, bust out the board games and let's chat.

Climbing Blocks

Brand new to rock climbing? These colorful blocks are just right for learning the basics and getting the 'hang' of climbing without getting too far off the ground.

Redneck Paintball

Think paintball with slingshots. Don't let the name fool you, your neck is well protected. Your pride, however, is not. Think fast! They come at you from all sides.

Zip Tour

Our dual line tour features FIVE sections of fast-moving zip lines stretched high above the alpine floor. Each section give you a different experience. Bring a friend!

Zip Drop

This is like a normal zip line, only a little more loosy-goosey, with special tethers that let you drift to the ground like a parachuter coming in for a landing.

Tree Rappelling

What's better than the view of the forest from the treetops? The trip back down of course. This is why ropes go with trees like campfires go with singalongs.

Tree House

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis.

Treehouse Challenge Course

Quietly nestled in the pines is a diabolical treehouse designed to test both your mental and physical abilities. Only the best problem solvers will prevail!

Waterfront Decks

Water you waiting for? Take a dip and a drop from any one of our numerous decks rigged with ropes, slides, blobs and more. Look out below, and bombs away!

Indoor Superswing

Hey camper, camper. Hey camper, camper. Swing! Harness up and take a big leap of faith. Only at Glorieta can kids have this much fun in church.

Inflatables

We're not just full of hot air when we say, "If it inflates, it's great!" Bounce through our collection of endless obstacles and feel your excitement balloon.

Arbor Climb

Do you love the woods? Well, harness up, because you're about to get closer to nature than ever before. This is tree climbing brought to another level.

Disc Golf

To heck with the clubs; grab a disk and join the fun. It's all in your swing... or is it the fling? This is the perfect place to test your skills at a high level.

Mountain Scooters

This ain't your smooth driveway and these things take scootering to a whole new level. Hop on and go for the ride of your life while trying to keep up!

Workout Room

If outdoor adventures aren't enough to tame the beast within you, or if you're on a special regimen, we have a full workout facility to help keep you on track.

eBikes

Ready for two-wheeled touring, but not looking forward to perpetually pushing pedals? Our ebikes are no "free ride", but they do give added oomf when you need it.

Hang Time

There are plenty of places around camp to relax. Stake a claim at one of the many hammocks that are open for grabs. Breath in the fresh air. Now exhale.

RC Cars

Can you ever get bored driving an RC car? If so, we're having too much fun on the track to notice. Take a few laps at top speed, and show the kids how it's done.

Drift Ball

It's like a cross between basketball, soccer, hockey, polo and demolition derby on our awesome drift trikes. Hard to explain. Amazing to play. Try it.

Hide and Seek

Close your eyes. Now, count to 100. You know the game. But have you ever played on a scale as epic as this? Seek out a match, and you'll find a good time.

BB Guns

BB guns are a lot of fun for beginners and expert shooters alike. Squeeze off a few pellets and plink some targets, and you'll see what we mean.

Crossbows

Time for some serious family bonding, William Tell style. Of course, you're not shooting an apple off anyone's head, but we promise it'll be pretty thrilling.

WHITEWATER RAFTING

It’s like navigating a torrent of liquid adrenaline while being yelled at to paddle harder, faster, this way and that – or else – you’re going swimming involuntarily. Suddenly the reason for the helmets and life jackets becomes crystal clear to you. This couldn’t be more fun!To add this to your camp experience, choose this option during the Sign Up process.

Additional Fee – $55 Per Person

HORSEBACK RIDING

Pull on your boots and saddle up the family for a half-day trail ride experience through towering mountains, ponderosa pines, and shimmering aspens.

Child Care

Family Camp is a time to bond, and we encourage sharing adventures together as much as possible.However, we know that some of your littles ones won’t be able to do every activity. Drop your littles ones off at our safe and secure childcare area where your kids will be monitored by carefully trained staff who are ready to have a blast! Your kids will have the opportunity to play outside, learn Bible stories and songs, and make some arts and crafts. So go ahead and explore – the little ones are safe with us.

Date Night

Take an evening to step back and spend some one on one time with your spouse. Enjoy some wonderful conversation over a savory dinner while the sound of nature and soft music play in the background. Spend this time investing in each other and your marriage without distraction, while your kids enjoy a night of fun activities.

Can’t wait for next year

“My son hasn’t stopped talking about camp! Thank you so much for being the light of Christ for our kids! Can’t wait for next year”

Parent loves son’s experience

“My son is more excited than ever to dive into his Bible and Sunday school!! Love your camp!!!”

Camper chooses to accept Christ

“My daughter loved it! She chose this time to pray and accept Jesus in her heart with Emily and April and I am so appreciative of them for making camp a week to remember!”

Four campers led to Christ

“This week I have been with our traveling Adventure for the City Camp.  Today, my co-lead and I led four of our campers to Christ. For the first time in my life, I have never experienced something more beautiful than those girls asking Jesus to come into their hearts. Wow! My God is so good!”

 

Seeds Planted.

“My kids thoroughly enjoyed it. And while I don’t see all the seeds that were planted, I know they were.”

Building relationships with new friends

“We really liked how our groups were broken up by regions this year. It was fun to build relationships with those that live in the same city as us.”

Got my 15 year old to open up

“The best part of our experience was your staff. Our two counselors were amazing and the youth leader got my 15-year-old son to open up…and I’m a pastor. I am very thankful!”

Family changed. Coming back.

“My family is changed for the better. And we can’t wait to come back next year.”

Family disconnects to reconnect

“We loved camp. It was amazing to be able to disconnect from the outside world and really connect as a family. I’m thankful for childcare because I was able to spend time with just the big kids which doesn’t happen in our normal day-to-day life. I enjoyed seeing joy on my kids faces as they tried new activities. We are already excited for camp next year.”

Thankful for new relationships

“We are thankful for the new relationships we built. Thankful for the new experiences we were able to share as a family. And so thankful all of that happened in a safe Christian environment.”

Family always grows closer at camp

“I was thrilled that my friends who came enjoyed the camp experience like we do. I always discover ways to grow closer with my family when I’m at camp. Love it!”

Glorieta meets needs. We love it.

“Glorieta continues to meet a need in the Rocky Mountain Region. Thanks for your willingness to partner with Churches and allow for us to focus on relationships with our students while you all take care of programming. We LOVE coming to camp and will be back.”

Group Camp sponsor feels blessed

“Our team was very blessed by the camp and camp staff. Thank you so much for all you do and for how you put Christ at the center of Glorieta.”

Seven kids find Jesus

“Seven of our kids were brought to Jesus and I really respect both the messages and the time taken to teach the kids the way they did. I can’t stress enough what an awesome impact it was on the kids.”

Group Camper’s response

“This changed my life. I’ll never forget it”

Group Camper experiences fellowship

“It Impacted me so much, just by knowing the other people are going through some similar stuff and we all came together to worship our true and only God.”

Group Camper’s decision

“I was able to make the decision to recommit myself to Christ.”

Group Camp Staff finds fulfillment in serving

“This was one of the most fulfilling times I have ever had in my life. I plan on serving again next year.”

He came in a stranger and went home a member of their family

A teen from a non-Christian family came to camp alone and not knowing anyone until a youth pastor befriended him on the bus. Later at camp, after an experience where campers nailed their “masks” to a cross, he opened up with many questions. In response, his group rallied around him with acceptance and love for the entire week. Leadership resolved to get him a ride to church regularly back home. He came in a stranger and went home a member of their family!

Grace finds purpose in God

“My daughter Grace just returned from camp with our church in Pueblo, Colorado. She cried lots of happy tears and said it was the best week of her life. She had a rough year with “friends” and with a very strained relationship with her dad.  She said she has never felt closer to God and said to me, “Momma for the first time ever I feel like maybe God could use me in ministry in the future!”

Erica counts down the days

“Erica has had a calendar made crossing off days these last couple of months until camp. Last week she said, ‘I just want it to be Monday!’”  Erica also told her mom that she knows God changes her here.

Parents appreciate fun exposure to faith

“Excellent experience. We are non-Christian belief system in both of their homes (mom’s house and dad’s house separate), and feel that this is very positive exposure for Lauren and Brooke, so that they may choose faith path that resonates with them. It provokes deeper questions and self introspection, in a non-threatening and fun way that is age appropriate for them. Thanks!”

Grace finds purpose in God

“My daughter Grace just returned from camp with our church in Pueblo, Colorado. She cried lots of happy tears and said it was the best week of her life. She had a rough year with “friends” and with a very strained relationship with her dad.  She said she has never felt closer to God and said to me, “Momma for the first time ever I feel like maybe God could use me in ministry in the future!”

Summer staffer recommits

One of our summer staff accepted Jesus yesterday! She is going to a Christian college and pursuing a degree in ministry. At a Student Life service, she was convicted that she hadn’t ever fully surrendered her heart to Jesus. So she did that yesterday morning! We have all been so excited ever since.

Four campers led to Christ

“This week I have been with our traveling Adventure for the City Camp.  Today, my co-lead and I led four of our campers to Christ. For the first time in my life, I have never experienced something more beautiful than those girls asking Jesus to come into their hearts. Wow! My God is so good!”
