Denver Celebrating 35 Years

1982-2017

 

 

Friendship Force of Denver, Colorado


The maximum number of Ambassadors our club can host: 20 normal, 25 maximum


Closest major airport: Denver International Airport


When We Host: We meet the Ambassadors at the airport and take them to their host family homes. Every day is filled with planned activities, some of our city activities may include tours of our state Capitol, The Mint, and museums such as Colorado History, Art, and Nature and Science. A visit to the town of Golden includes the Coors Brewery, the National Earthquake Center, and the School of Mines Geological Museum. A visit to Boulder will include a visit to Celestial Seasonings Tea Factory. Day visits to the mountains will allow for short hikes, wild flower viewing and visits to peaks of 14,000 FT. Our foothills will include a visit to Red Rocks Amphitheatre where world entertainers offer outdoor concerts, Buffalo Bill’s museum and grave site, and perhaps a cultural program at The Fort that explains the early settlers and fur trappers in the state. A week's cultural Journey will include Welcome and Farewell gatherings that include other club members, and we also plan smaller area dinner parties.


Denver has six major sports teams, including football with the Super Bowl winning Broncos, ice hockey with the Colorado Avalanche, Rapids soccer, Nuggets basketball, Rockies baseball, & Outlaws lacrosse.


We enjoy the Rocky Mountains from Pikes Peak to Rocky Mountain National Park and west into the major winter and summer recreational areas, including Vail, Georgetown, and Central City, are all available for our Ambassadors to enjoy.


While on a cultural Journey, members are home hosted individually or in pairs for a week in each city by members of the receiving Friendship Force club. It's a unique, if not rare, opportunity to share in the lives of a family and to learn about their culture. It's a lot more than just sharing bed and board. Members sometimes find themselves attending a wedding, a family birthday party, visiting a school, or even taking part in a church service. They may be taken to a spa in Japan, an underground salt cathedral in Poland, or visit an ice palace in Sweden. You just never know...


It may sound like we are a travel club, but we are not. We are a lot more. We are looking for others who want to make foreign friends to better understand their culture, lifestyle and values. If this sounds interesting to you, we want to hear from you. To check us out better or to become a member contact us, email FFDBoard@gmail.com.

 

About the region: The Denver metropolitan area has a population of close to 3 million. The City and the surrounding area offers many varied opportunities for sightseeing and cultural enjoyment.  Denver enjoys mild spring and fall weather, temperatures in the summer months in the 80's and 90's with some afternoon thundershowers.  In the Winter we do have snow and cold weather, however, outdoor activities such as golf, bicycling and

hiking can usually be enjoyed 12 months of the year.

 

Make your memories, Colorado Style!
