Let your Children Experience the Best of Summer Fun at our Day Camp in the Vail Valley

The Lodge & Spa at Cordillera

Summer at The Lodge & Spa at Cordillera is always a lot of fun for grown-ups and kids alike.  For the adults we have tennis and golf, fly-fishing, horseback riding, mountain biking and hiking too, all in the area, just to name a few.  But for the little ones we have every summer day filled with lots of fun at the Cordillera Day Camp, better known as Cordy’s Camp.  School is coming to an end and it’s time to start making plans for the little ones this summer. 

Our summer camp program for children ages 5 to 12 runs Monday through Friday beginning on June 2nd and ending on August 22nd.  

The Children’s Clubhouse has an outdoor pool with water slide, teepees in the woods, a playground and so much more.  Special crafts, games and activities are ongoing and each day your child can choose which activities they will participate in.  What better way to spend the summer day then by making friends, being active and experiencing Colorado’s great outdoors.   

Tennis, golf and swimming instruction is offered at an additional cost each week.   More information on The Lodge & Spa at Cordillera and everything we offer can be found online.  More information about the day camp can be found in the Cordillera Day Camp Flier.
