Family Camp

Adventure

Ideal for: Families and Couples   |   Ages: All Ages   |   Dates: June 7th – August 5th

The most unique family vacation.

Adventure is the best kind of family bonding.

A 6-day adventure Christian 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 refocus on what matters.

Family time that transforms.

When families spend time outdoors and outside of their everyday norm – 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 as individuals and together. Your Christian family camp may end after one week, but the knowledge you gain can impact your families and communities for a lifetime.

Drop your children (0-5 years) off at our safe and secure childcare area where they 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 sounds 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 with our staff.

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!”
