Horn Creek Camp is nestled in the woods on the Eastern slope of the wondrous Sangre de Cristo Mountain Range, one of the longest mountain chains on Earth. They stretch from Poncha Pass, Colorado, in the north to Glorieta Pass, New Mexico, in the south. There are ten peaks over 14,000' high in the range, more than two dozen over 13,000'.
Meaning "blood of Christ," the Sangres provide the perfect setting for the ministry of Horn Creek camp.
Not only do we enjoy the beauty of the range, but also the fertile Wet Mountain Valley, fed by numerous creeks that run from the high lake basins of the range down into the valley below. Horn Creek, from which our camp derives its name, runs right along the back side of the camp all through the summer.
Truly, the majesty and glory of our great Creator is on display here. Even so, we are reminded that He who made these mountains is far greater in glory, majesty and strength then what we see here or can even imagine.
I lift up my eyes to the hills.
From where does my help come?
My help comes from the LORD,
who made heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot be moved;
he who keeps you will not slumber.
Behold, he who keeps Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
The LORD is your keeper;
the LORD is your shade on your right hand.
The sun shall not strike you by day,
nor the moon by night.
The LORD will keep you from all evil;
he will keep your life.
The LORD will keep
your going out and your coming in
from this time forth and forevermore.
