Gates Camp is a residential summer camp facility located at the base of the Indian Peaks Wilderness area west of Boulder, Colorado. Our unique camp offers Boys & Girls Club members a chance to experience new activities, learn a variety of new skills, and try new behaviors. Our campers have the opportunity to make deep connections with both nature and dedicated staff.
Our one-of-a-kind facilities at Gates Camp include authentic log cabins which house campers, counselors, and guests. These rustic lodgepole pine buildings were originally built in the 1920s, when the property consisted of more than 800 acres and was known as the Lodge of the Pines Guest Ranch. The Lodge of the Pines operated for a number of years and was a popular get-away for people from all over the country and around the world. Eventually, a portion of this land with original log structures was donated to what is now Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver.
