A Beautiful winter morning at Long Scraggy Ranch
A Beautiful winter morning!

Long Scraggy Mountain Ranch is a special place which strives to serve God by giving our users a clean, safe, friendly environment to enjoy the outdoors.  The Camp has been serving the Lord since 1971.  We are surrounded almost entirely by the Pike National Forest, and are within ten minutes of the North Fork of the South Platte and from the South Platte itself. The Camp sits at an elevation of roughly 7400’. Our average temperatures are usually 10 degrees less than what Denver is forecasted. 

Long Scraggy Mountain Ranch was purchased by the Rocky Mountain Christian Conference Grounds, which is made up of the youth groups from the Christian Reformed Churches of Denver.  We currently have Board members from 1st Christian Reformed, Hope Fellowship Christian Reformed, Hillcrest Christian Reformed, Eastern Hills Community, and Connections Church. We currently also have a sub-committee we call the Calvin Camp Board.

Calvin Camp is our program camp.  Calvin is held for two weeks each year in July. Each week is broken down into different age groups.  Activities include Bible, Crafts, Archery, Rifle range, Games, Fishing, and Swimming.  It is a great time for youth to grow in the Lord and to start and/or strengthen friendships. Please feel free to contact us for more information.

To follow our purpose of serving the Christian community each camp that rents the facility goes through a screening process.  We serve many groups from church retreats to family reunions.  One of our primary goals is to serve Christian youth camps.  We love seeing the excitement on children’s faces as they run to their cabin for the first time.
