Family Summer Vacations
Your Search is Over: The Perfect Mountain Family Getaway Begins Here
It’s 6 am and it’s rush hour – C Lazy U dude ranch style. Revving engines and the honking of frustrated drivers is replaced with the clattering of hooves and whinnying of horses. Our 200 horse herd comes in from pasture every morning to give you a show and enhance your Colorado family vacation. It’s an amazing sight: a thunderous parade of horses lead by skillful wranglers who corral the horses and saddle them for another day on the trails during your dream horseback riding vacation.
What does a summer day look like at C Lazy U Ranch?
The day begins early with fireside “Cowboy Coffee” freshly brewed at the lodge fire pit and a family breakfast. Kids and parents eat a hearty meal together in preparation for the high-energy activities that are coming their way. We’ve got a ranch-style breakfast with all the fixings: pancakes, eggs, sausage, hash browns, fruit and pastries.
Once everyone is nice and full, kids begin their day of summer exploration and adventure in our supervised kid’s program. C Lazy U dude ranch provides a classic summer camp experience that children will never forget. Kids are grouped by age and make lasting friendships with their peers as they participate in horseback riding, fishing, scavenger hunts, and other fun-filled activities. Our experienced counselors, some of whom were once little campers at C Lazy U themselves, share their passion for the West and for summer fun. We keep kids entertained throughout the entire day with a variety of activities specially tailored to their Colorado summer vacation.
Knowing the kids are safe and fully-occupied, adults can take off on horseback, relax at the spa, play tennis, or simply unwind while reading a book at the pool. After all, this is your family summer vacation too.
To wrap up the day’s activities, kids and their counselors enjoy dinner together while parents enjoy an all-inclusive gourmet meal with their peers. Afterward, families come together for the nightly family activity. It’s a truly special experience where friendships are forged, lifelong memories are created, and each day is a perfect balance of fun, family, and friendship as part of your Colorado summer vacation at C Lazy U dude ranch.
