Learn, be inspired, and discover.
Tucked into the rolling red rock foothills at the gate of Colorado's Rocky Mountains, along the Big Thompson River, Heart-J Center provides learning experiences in creativity, outdoor adventure, and wellness that take full advantage of 3,000 acres of authentic Western ranch land at Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch. It’s a place where you can slow down … engage your heart, hands, mind, and curiosity … and be part of a community of discovery.
Heart-J Center Impact
The historic 2013 Big Thompson flood was a turning point for Sylvan Dale Ranch. Heart-J Center and its educational vision was born from the devastation with a commitment to keep the Ranch alive through an emphasis on learning, creating, and healing. Since then, Heart-J Center programs have served over 13,000 people, from toddlers to senior citizens. Over 350 programs have been offered, from half-day experiences to week-long retreats.
