When traveling to Colorado for Heritage Camp, here are a few helpful things to consider.
Whether driving or flying to Colorado from out-of-state, we highly recommend that you arrive a day or two before camp, so your family can acclimate to our higher altitude! If your camp is being held in the mountains, you might enjoy staying in Denver for a couple of nights, which is a bit of an adjustment at 5,280 feet, then going up to the mountains for camp, which will be at about 9,000 feet! You are also welcome to arrange lodging at the camp site either before camp or after camp, but you will have to do that through individual reservations, and not through our group rate.
The airport you will be flying into for camp is Denver International Airport. It is approximately 40 minutes from central Denver Regis University. It is about 2 1⁄2 hours from Fraser, and about 1 1⁄2 hours from Estes Park. We highly recommend that you fly in one to two days early, so that your family can acclimate to the higher altitude in Colorado before camp begins. Camp will end around noon on the last day. Please schedule your flight that day to allow for the recommended arrival at the airport two hours before flight time.
We highly recommend you rent a car as it will be much easier for you and your family to get back and forth from the airport to camp, and then to get around easier with your family in the location where your camp is held.
