Horn Creek. Check it out.

If you are a foster or adoptive parent – this is super cool.

My husband’s family has gone to Horn Creek Family Camp every year for around 745 years. Just ask him. I’m going for the first time this summer. It’s in the middle of the mountains in Colorado with lots of hiking, outdoor stuff, campfires, food, and family time.


Anyway. Why is this relevant?

Because they just started a week of family camp just for adoptive and foster families. There is all the normal cool outdoorsy stuff, plus content aimed specifically for adoptive and foster families.

EVEN BETTER, any children in your family who were adopted and/or placed with you within the last year get to go to camp for free! Which makes it a much more affordable vacation with the whole fam.

Anyway, I think it’s really neat that they are making this available, and I just thought I’d let you know.

HERE is the link.

Update from Brian: My family started going in 1988 and went every single year through 2006 (so 745 is a typical Maggie exaggeration). Some of my best childhood and family memories come from there, and I think EVERY family would absolutely love it!

P.S. The food is AMAZING!


  1. Brian's update makes me laugh! It sounds just like my Mike. :)

    Hey Brian, will you write a post with your thoughts and feelings (from the beginning) about foster care for all the husbands out there who might be hesitant? :) I already e-mailed Maggie, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask you straight out, either! :)

  2. So cool! I'm going to point people to your post on Twitter so that they can find out about this opportunity!

  3. We used to live and Colorado and were so sad to leave. This sounds awesome!
