Basecamp Wilderness Adventures

These adventures begin and end at Glorieta base camp where numerous super fun camp resources and activities are available including the waterfront, zip lines, drift trikes, coffee shop, home-style cooking and more. In between, we hit the trail to take in the breath-taking Glorieta mountain and wilderness scenery.

Backpacking - Glorieta Loop

This is a great place to start. The trailhead is right out the back door and the schedule is more activity driven, rather than a peak or distance being the goal. Although you're on the trail you still get to try new things like rock climbing and rappelling, or you can jump in the swimming hole and warm up in the sauna.

Backpacking - The Pecos Wilderness Loop

A favorite trail, this loop includes Pecos Baldy and Truchas Peak as the primary goals of the trip. Truchas is the second largest peak in New Mexico and to many, offers the most spectacular vistas and views. Shhhhhhhhh!! This beautiful wilderness area is one of the best kept secrets of Northern New Mexico.

Backpacking - Adventure Photography

Glorieta is in the heart of one of the biggest art hubs in the West and is the perfect setting for outdoor photography. We combine the adventure of the mountains with the artistic creativity of photography in a week long adventure through the Rockies where participants learn about the outdoors and photographic artistry.

Technical Rock Climbing

Our Climbing Course is for climbers of all skill levels to pursue their passion for challenging their vertical limits, while exploring their Christian faith. Instructional climbing courses and adventures can be tailored to the length of the trip and ability of the individuals with a focus on skill development and risk management.

White Water River Adventure

Cutting between mountain ranges in Northern New Mexico are the Rio Grande and Rio Chama, each with a ton of heart-pounding whitewater potential. We do everything from half-day thrill rides at the end of a great backpacking trip, to multi-day river raft trips with an overnight camping experience at river's edge.
