If you are wanting to send your child to camp this summer, it’s time to start making plans. For those of us who live in Colorado, we have many camps from which to choose. One of these is Sanborn Western Camps in Florissant, Colorado. For more than 60 years, Sanborn Western Camps have been a place for children from around the world to make friendships, climb mountains, ride horses, enjoy water activities, sing around camp fires and much, much more. They are located approximately 35 miles west of Colorado Springs, 2 hours from Denver.
