Heritage Camps at Snow Mountain Ranch include: Cambodian, Chinese, Indian/ Nepalese, Korean, Latin American, and REECA.
Though we are not directly affiliated with the YMCA of the Rockies, we are fortunate to be able to use their Snow Mountain Ranch facilities in Fraser, Colorado for 6 out of 11 of our camps. A family vacation destination in itself, Snow Mountain Ranch is nestled on 5,100 acres in a beautiful wilderness setting just two hours west of Denver. Most everything you would like in a Colorado mountain vacation package is right there, including hiking, fishing, canoeing, swimming, roller skating, volleyball, tennis, horseback riding, hayrides, and MORE! Snow Mountain Ranch is located a few miles west of the ski resort, Winter Park, which has a full roster of summertime fun and activities. Snow Mountain is also just a few miles east of Granby and Grand Lake, Colorado, both of which boast many summer activities, including boating on large lakes (for Colorado). Forget that expensive skiing in Colorado -summer is the BEST and most beautiful time to be here!

With more activities than anywhere else, most included free in your stay, everyone in your family will find something to do.

Rocky Mountain National Park
Our Filipino Heritage Camp will be held at this conference center.
Located in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Golden, Colorado, the American Mountaineering Center is an ideal place to hold camp. It's spacious meeting rooms will accomodate us nicely, and having an indoor climbing wall right outside the meeting space is a nice touch. The center also houses a fascinating museum created to promote and foster inspiration and education for one of the world's most demanding endeavors, mountain climbing.
Golden itself is a great town in the foothills with lots of open space to walk in, ride bikes, tube down Clear Creek, and enjoy outdoor eating spaces and coffee shops, as well as shopping and sight seeing. We are very excited about our new "home" for FHC this year!
This new location is also just 15 minutes from the Filipino American Community of Colorado's (FACC) community center where we will be spending some time while at camp this year.

Colorado Heights University (formerly Loretto Heights) is located in a rich, culturally diverse area of Denver. It also has one of, if not the best view of the mountains from any point in Denver! It is a spacious, secluded campus, with mature trees, lots of outdoor space, and more than adequate meeting space. It is an ideal spot for an urban camp getaway.
In Denver, are many culturally-rich opportunities to explore in the urban environment as well as lots of fun things to do in the city for the entire family! Plus the mountains are a mere one to two-hour drive west, so can be an easy day trip for families visiting the Mile High City.
