Sky Ranch Camps

Sky Ranch Horn Creek

Sky Ranch Family Camp at Horn Creek sits at the base of the Sangre De Cristo mountain range outside of Westcliffe, Colorado. Family Camp creates opportunities for intentional and purposeful interactions between parents and children. The objective is to equip parents to minister to their families year round. Programs are scripturally based and combined with our years of ministry experience. Family Camp provides an opportunity to be free from the daily responsibilities of meal planning and scheduling, free from the pressure and stresses of the outside world, free from the over-connectedness of everyday lives, and free to fully enjoy the gift of family and relationships. Each session of Family Camp at Horn Creek features a special guest speaker and trained Sky Ranch staff, all devoted to encouraging, challenging, and serving families. Choose the location and dates that work best for your family and join us this summer for an experience that could change your family forever!

The Lodge: Our beautiful alpine lodge has capacity for 120 guests and features a large living room-style meeting space as its hub, along with a dining room that boasts a panoramic view of Horn Peak. Our comfortable guest rooms provide all the features you’d expect from an alpine hotel. Four rustic, yet well-appointed cabins are also available and ideal for larger families that are looking for a more intimate setting.

Mountain Meadows: Mountain Meadows is a unique location featuring 15 rustic, individual cabins as well as the mini lodge, which hosts eight guest rooms. All of the lodging is centered around the Mountain Meadows lodge, a meeting and dining space, which is always open, providing a great place for late-night games or snacks; and the coffee is always on!

Both spaces feature engaging fireplaces that warm conversations and have full multimedia capabilities including a large HD flat-panel screen. You can finish your day in the hot tub or with activities just a short walk away in the Recreation Center.
