About us: Rated “best outdoor camp in the country” by Outside Magazine “Set on 6,000 acres of meadows and ponderosa forests, Sanborn combines traditional sleepaway camp with extended backcountry expeditions. The largest private camp in the country, it has access to more 14,000-foot peaks than any other program in Colorado, and kids can head out on two- to five-day backpacking and horsepacking trips to bag summits, cast for trout, climb granite crags, and explore the high country.” In the late 1940’s an idealistic young couple had a vision of a better world. In the years just after World War II, Laura and Sandy Sanborn had a dream of creating a place where young people could learn to live together in the out-of-doors . In 1948, they welcomed four boys to Big Spring Ranch .
