Discipleship Guide


What we have are the Rocky Mountains: Aspens, Pines, Sandstone, Granite, The Santa Fe National Forest, The Pecos Wilderness, Snow, Rain, Sun, and High Temps in the 80’s. Glorieta starts at about 7,500 feet above sea level and reaches up from there.

We’re not kidding; these are real mountains, with real seasons, and real adventure.

Glorieta Walkabout students call our restful Walkabout Lodge home during their time here. Separate girls and guys wings are complete with bunk beds and dressers, and both wings have their own shared bathrooms. An inviting and spacious community area gives students the perfect place to unwind, play games and get to know each other with meeting tables, cozy couches and, in the winter months, a crackling fireplace. But when it comes to fellowship, there is no time like mealtime! In the kitchen, students gather to prepare meals throughout the week, using recipes and ingredients provided for all group meals, which can also accommodate food allergies and medical food sensitivities.
