Since 1948, Sanborn Western Camps have been creating outdoor experiences of exceptional quality and depth. Our fun, relaxed atmosphere and caring staff provide a supportive environment for individual growth in self-confidence, independence, and awareness of others. Each child's contributions are valued in a community based on mutual respect and shared adventures. Surrounded by spectacular wilderness areas and stunning peaks, Big Spring Ranch for Boys and High Trails Ranch for Girls lie at an elevation of 8700 feet in the center of Colorado, 35 miles west of Colorado Springs. The camps own more than 6000 acres of open pine forest, wildflower meadows and rocky bluffs, an unparalleled setting for outdoor adventures.
