Health & Safety


Safety is taken very seriously at Glorieta. In fact, Glorieta exceeds the annual requirements set by the State of New Mexico. Glorieta goes to great lengths to ensure that every activity from low elements to high ropes, zip lines and fun challenges are properly created, installed, facilitated, and maintained. In addition, the facilities are inspected and certified annually by qualified third party organizations to ensure the safety of each and every camper. While adventure activities hold a certain level of inherent risk, our staff takes precautions above the industry standard to reduce the chances of injury.


Glorieta has many certified Wilderness First Responder (WFRs) on staff who are out and about Camp during your stay. This nationally recognized certification is specially designed to deal with illness and injury in remote locations. Minimum summer staff requirements include: American Red Cross Lifeguard and First-Aid training and certification, CPR for the Professional Rescuer certification, ropes training, and courses in handling sexual harassment or child abuse cases. Our medical protocols meet national standards and are routinely examined and approved by local E.R. doctors who serve as our medical advisers.

Food & Allergies

At Glorieta Camps we are evaluated on every aspect of our program, including our meals. Our food is rated top-notch and we recognize the value of good fuel for the body. Cereal is offered at every breakfast as well as a salad bar at lunch and dinner to compliment the main dish. Most meals are served at the main Dining Hall or Chuck Wagon, along with special outdoor meals prepared in conjunction with various activities.

We care for our guests, and in an effort to keep them healthy and well-fed, we are happy to serve those with food allergies. During the registration process, each guest will be able to mark their dietary needs on his or her health history section. Food will be prepared appropriately for those with allergies. Due to the large number of our guests we are not able to prepare specialty plates for those with special preferences, such as vegan or vegetarian. We serve a sandwich and salad option at lunch and supper.
