The JCC Ranch Camp is located 400 acres of ranchland in Elbert, Colorado within a beautiful area known as the Black Forest. The camp, which is owned and operated by the Robert E. Loup Jewish Community Center in Denver, is open to children entering grades 2-11 with programs designed specifically for each age. Campers reside in log cabins in groups of up to 12-14 campers with 3-4 staff members.

Over the past 10 years, Ranch Camp supporters have raised over $3 million to put towards site improvements and renovations.  Our goal is to preserve our site for generations of Jewish youth yet to come and as a place for camp alum to return to.  jccranch_330

All camp buildings are located within a central area and are surrounded by a sprawling acreage of pine forests, which provide spots for hiking, mountain biking, climbing, camping, and exploring. The facility includes a corral that houses over 40 horses during the summer, providing for one of the best equestrian programs to be found in a Jewish camp setting nationwide.

JCC Ranch Camp also offers a heated outdoor swimming pool, a technical rock climbing wall, a low-elements ropes course, a high-elements challenge course and zip line, a sports field and basketball court, nature and crafts center, and miles and miles of beautiful trails on our 400-acre ranch.
