During each weekend program, family members are fully immersed in nature - camping, hiking, fishing, mountain biking, summiting peaks, and building connections with others and confidence with accomplishment of each new outdoor activity. From scholarships to gear, we strive to break down barriers for participation. We offer Family Camps that are in english, spanish or billingual. 

We offer ~20 weekend long family camps each year at Cal-Wood, Rocky Mountain National Park, CO State Parks, and local/regional parks.  


Durante cada programa de fin de semana, los miembros de la familia están completamente inmersos en la naturaleza: acampar, hacer caminatas, pescar, andar en bicicleta de montaña, escalar picos y construir conexiones con otros y confianza para realizar actividades al aire libre. Desde becas hasta equipos, nos esforzamos por derribar barreras para la participación. Ofrecemos Campamentos Familiares que son en inglés, español o bilingües.

Ofrecemos ~20 campamentos familiares de fin de semana de duración cada año en Cal-Wood, el Parque Nacional de las Montañas Rocosas, los parques estatales de CO y los parques locales/regionales.

At this camp, families will experience a unique camp in Rocky Mountain National Park.

During this camp, families will explore the park guided by instructors on Saturday and learn how to set up a tent themselves. They will also be taught various applications which they can use to explore this and other parks on their own.


Families will have the opportunity to speak with the rangers and in some cases become Junior Rangers or watch a presentation by the rangers on a nature-related topic (this depends on the day and is subject to change).


Families cook their food individually so they learn to use camping stoves. Usually in teams of 2 or 3 families per stove.


We will end the day with a bonfire and some delicious s'mores.


On Sunday they will be taught how to make reservations for the national parks.


Camp will be packed up and you will be given more information about the park and its surroundings so your family can explore this wonderful place on their own.

Even with demonstrated success and unmet demand (800% growth since 2014), Cal-Wood is still the only organization engaging Latino families through overnight camping at this level in Colorado. This is why we launched our expansion initiative. Through this effort, We seek to empower other organizations to implement Latino Family Camps in their communities. We plan to build partnerships, guide partners through the process and create the resources necessary to educate and inspire organizations statewide to engage a growing community of Latino explorers and nature lovers!
