Ideal for: Families, Couples and Children | Ages: All Ages | Dates: August – May
Come together, get lost in the right direction.
Leave the road behind and take the trails.
Adventure is the best kind of family bonding.
Whether it’s a much-needed getaway for your immediate family, or you’re planning a milestone reunion, we are all about families growing together and making memories through exciting outdoor adventures and experiential learning. When they spend time in nature playing and overcoming challenges – they grow closer and learn new things about each other. By infusing the camp experience with Biblical truths, real relationships emerge and adventures become life lessons that provide opportunities for spiritual growth. Camp may end, but the wealth of knowledge they gain can impact their lives and communities forever.
Your family bonding is totally flexible so that you can get the most relaxation out of your trip. Feel free schedule in as much or as little as you like. The important thing is that you relax, unwind and spend time with God – whether alone or in a group. We just want you to be spiritually and physically refreshed.
You can spend all of your retreat nestled in the seclusion of Glorieta and all it has to offer. Or, you can venture off for an afternoon in historic Santa Fe, just a short drive from camp.
Santa Fe is among the oldest cities in the United States, with a vast history and unique mix of art and culture. Set some time aside to visit Santa Fe and attend one of its many festivals, markets, galleries or concerts.
*Whitewater rafting availability is limited. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve spots. Additional Fee is $55 Per Person.
