DENVER, Colo. – After a two year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Family Camp returns to JCC Ranch Camp from August 12-14, 2022. Families can choose to attend for the whole weekend or come up for one day on Saturday, August 13 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The weekend will include family, adults-only and kids-only activities including horseback riding, rodeo, zip-lining, tie-dye and crafts, high ropes course, swimming, archery and much more.
“The goal of Ranch Camp is twofold: to allow families and kids to experience the joys of Ranch Camp together and to give kids a sneak peak into what sleepaway camp is all about,” said Ryan Bocchino, director at JCC Ranch. “At Family Camp, we’ll offer babysitting in the evenings for parents to connect with each other and for kids to do their own activities, and we’ll offer many activities that families can do together throughout the weekend. We look forward to welcoming families back to Family Camp!”
There are a variety of lodging options for the weekend including new tiny homes, shared or private cabins, cottages and TASC tents. Rates for the whole weekend vary between $525-$1,050 and include lodging, meals and activities. Rates for a one day pass for Saturday are $125 per person or $300 for up to four people and include activities and lunch.
Family Camp will be celebrating the JCC Denver’s 100th anniversary during the weekend with special events, swag and more to mark the organization’s milestone.
