CHAMP Program

As part of the Colorado Tourism Office’s efforts to raise awareness of and appreciation for cultural, heritage, agricultural, and outdoor adventure assets statewide, Destination Development offers a peer-assistance and training program for farms and ranches, businesses, museums, attractions and organizations that want to improve or expand their own cultural, heritage tourism, agritourism, or outdoor adventure attractions.

The Cultural, Heritage/Agritourism Mentor Program, or CHAMP, exists to stimulate the development of high-quality cultural, heritage, agricultural and outdoor adventure tourism experiences for travelers in Colorado.
