Mission, Purpose, Values, & Beliefs

Covenant Heights Camp & Retreat Center exists to serve youth, students, churches, and guest groups by providing spiritual, inspirational, and educational opportunities in a Christ-centered community of Christian camping.


Who We Are

We are a full-service, year-round camp and retreat center sitting on the border of the breath-taking Rocky Mountain National Park in spectacular Estes Park, Colorado. This is the ideal retreat setting throughout the whole year for groups large and small.

Our purpose is to make and deepen disciples of Jesus Christ and to boldly present the Gospel of Jesus Christ to young people, families, and adults through innovative, relevant, and high-quality retreat and camping experiences. It is our desire and hope that each individual that comes to the Heights will take steps closer to Christ.
