It is with great sorrow that we have made the very difficult decision to cancel the 2020 summer camp season of Big Spring, High Trails, and Sanborn Junior.
Be safe, be healthy, and we hope you can #FindYourSummerSelf during these challenging times.Click here for updates & info

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, and many other exciting trips and program challenges.
High Trails also offers an outstanding western horseback riding program, including overnight riding trips, 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. Sanborn camps foster authentic friendships that can last a lifetime. Sanborn provides the perfect combination of outdoor adventures, fun, friendships, relaxation, and life skills development.
