When: third week of August

Every year we sponsor children between eight and 18—and who have been patients in our Burn Center—to attend Cheley Camp. Kids enjoy swimming, horseback riding, climbing and fishing. They meet and socialize with kids just like themselves and get lots of help learning to cope with their injuries.

The Cheley Camp program began in 1984. It’s run by the camp staff and a team from the Children’s Hospital of Denver. Staff members from our Burn Center go with our campers so they have familiar faces to make them feel at home.
