Phto: DCPA-Camp Christmas.

 Colorado’s campiest and quirkiest holiday tradition is back.

“Camp Christmas” has returned to its original location, indoors at Stanley Marketplace, for the first time since 2019.

The exhibition is a 15,000-square-foot, 360-degree immersive experience and kaleidoscope of yuletide cheer.

The experience lets guests wander through a surreal mashup of nostalgic scenes, scratch their heads at playful pun trees, and reconnect with the joy of the season.

Handcrafted by Camp Director Lonnie Hanzon and his band of Denver-based magic makers, Camp Christmas is a dazzling dreamscape made just for you. It’s an invitation to come in from the cold and wrap yourself up in the ooey-gooey, eclectic rituals that have

brought light to the darkness of winter for thousands of years.  

At Camp, you can leave your worries behind, discover your holiday superpower, pay a visit to Santa, and savor craft cocktails from our Base Camp and Fairy Bars. You can wander through a surreal mashup of nostalgic scenes, scratch your head at playful pun trees,

and, most importantly, reconnect with the joy of the season. 

“Camp Christmas” will have self-guided tours where photos are encouraged, festive food and refreshments, plus visits from Santa Claus.

Tickets for “Camp Christmas” are on sale now at

The Hangar at Stanley Marketplace is located in Aurora at 2501 North Dallas Street.
