High Trails Ranch –
Summer Camps for
The warmth and friendliness of
the all-girl community at High Trails is evident from the first moment you
step into the Lodge.
Staff members and campers are energetic, fun, and enthusiastic about their adventures. Campers are justifiably proud of their accomplishments which include climbing Colorado’s highest peaks, five-day wilderness backpacking trips, other exciting trips and program challenges.
Our girls camp also offers a variety of outdoor, adventurous activities for both 'mountain mamas' and horseback riders. Our overnight, all day and multi-day horseback riding trips--for those with a passion for horses--are often favorites; while rock climbing, mountain biking, mountaineering and other fun activities provide unique opportunities for girls to develop competence and confidence in the outdoors.
The spirit of High Trails is evident in our community: the girls work, laugh and play together while they respectfully support and encourage each other to grow. Sanborn camps foster authentic friendships that can last a lifetime. Our 6,000 acres of Rocky Mountain wilderness is the perfect setting for our overnight summer camps. Sanborn provides the perfect combination of outdoor adventures, fun, friendships, relaxation, and life skills development.
The philosophy of Sanborn camps includes free choice, new challenges, free play within the natural world and a strong sense of community and cooperation. This builds self-esteem, self-reliance, self-confidence and leadership initiative. The growth we see in our campers in terms of personal development, authentic friendships and taking responsibility is inspiring. And the whole time, they are just having summer FUN!
