Cross Bar X Youth Ranch

About Cross Bar X Youth Ranch

Cross Bar X has been providing youth programming and activities for socially and economically disadvantaged youth at our 150 acre facility in Durango, CO since 1977. The primary purpose of CBX is to provide high quality summer camps and youth services at a cost that any family can afford. Our programs are designed to share the truth of Jesus Christ with every camper and help campers grow physically, emotionally and spiritually while having the adventure of a lifetime. Ask any camper who has ever spent a week with us at CBX is a place you’ll never forget!

Our Mission:
We exist to reach socially and economically disadvantaged youth with the gospel of Jesus Christ. This is accomplished through providing youth with Christ-centered summer camps. These give CBX a platform for year-round discipleship, outreach events, and involvement in a Bible believing church.

Our Core Values:
In everything we do, we present campers with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Our desire is that no camper is turned away from Cross Bar X due to a lack of resources.
Each camper receives individual attention.
We foster spiritual growth through discipleship and mentoring.
Campers are encouraged to participate in a Bible believing church.
We seek to provide life skills and opportunity for spiritual growth through experiential education.
We seek to support and enrich the families of our campers.


Camp Counselor

May 2019 - August 2019 Durango, CO
“I loved my coworkers and my bosses. Everyone strove to provide an uplifting environment for not only the kids we hosted, but for the staff members themselves. We were taken care of and given rest after stressful situations in counselling. Though the job was difficult, my relationship with the kids, new ones each camp, got stronger and stronger as I learned to love my job more and more.”
