Leave a Legacy for Future CYO families to benefit from CYO programs!
Colorado Youth Outdoors is Where Relationships Grow! CYO exists to build relationships through traditional outdoor recreation. We strengthen relationships between youth and their parents or other significant adults, mentors and youth, youth and their peers, families, and all of our clients with the amazing natural resources in Colorado. At Swift Ponds, our 240 acre outdoor education and recreation facility, relationships grow through traditional outdoor recreation, such as fishing, archery, shooting sports, fly tying and so much more! The unique combination of education coupled with an unmatched outdoor experience and intentional relationship building , is the true gift of CYO. CYO has grown from a school based evening program to a site based regional program in Northern Colorado serving multiple communities and the youth and families within them. The programming we provide helps families, youth and other members of the community connect in meaningful ways, create fun lasting memories and develop a lifelong love of the outdoors.
