High Trails Ranch –
Summer Camps for
The warmth and friendliness of
the all-girl community at High Trails camps 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 camps also offer a concentration on horseback riding -– including overnight riding trips -- for those with a passion for horses, as well as a wide variety of other activities from which to choose.
The spirit of High Trails is most evident when watching the girls warmly engaged with each other, laughing together and helping one another -– in contrast to the cliquishness that is so often present in schools. Sanborn camps foster authentic friendships that can last a lifetime. Our 12,000 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!
