Energizer Retreat

Ideal for: Educators and Their Families       |       Ages: All Ages       |       Dates: September 28-30

Relax. Recharge. Relate. Rejoice.

Experience inspiring lessons in one of the greatest classrooms on earth – God’s natural creation.

This outdoor adventure getaway is a perfect opportunity for educators and their families to take time away from the everyday stresses that are part of leading a school or classroom, and to cultivate that sense of clarity, meaning, and purpose that can only be found in God’s Word.

When was the last time you took time for yourself?

Of all the jobs, one of the hardest is teaching. And we know that among you hard-working teachers, too many of you take too little time for yourselves. So we created a perfect time and place for you to recharge and refocus. An adventure retreat designed for teachers and their families to spend time together in an inspiring and spiritually rejuvenating weekend where you can grow your relationship with Christ.

Bring 3 For Free

As a way to say “Thank You” to all of you who serve tirelessly in our nation’s education systems, we’re delighted to offer all educators a “Bring 3 For Free” deal for our Educator’s Energizer Retreat that allows you to bring yourself and two other persons from your school for free. Use it as a time to get away, plan with teammates, enjoy our activities, meet others, or escape into the mountains for adventure and solitude. This time is YOUR time, and we are here to serve however we can.

TOTALLY FLEXIBLE

Your retreat is totally flexible so that you can get the most relaxation out of your trip. Feel free to participate in as much or as little of what we have planned 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.

Excursions

You can spend all four days 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.

Wilderness Hiking

There's adventure in each breath and every step. Let your wanderlust take over and experience spectacular vistas across miles of pristine mountain trails.

Mountain Bikes

Hop on and go for a spin that will leave you breathless in more ways than one. When you experience a mountainside ride, you'll know what we mean.

Whitewater Rafting

"Row! Row! Row! You lazy land lubbers! Heave ho and off we go! Steady as she goes." Will somebody smack that guide with a paddle?

Rappelling

Your heart pounds as you overcome your nerves and step off the cliff. What were you thinking? Total focus. Step by step. Now you're down, confident. Again!

Super Swing

Hey camper, camper. Hey camper, camper. Swing! Harness up and take a big leap of faith. Only at Glorieta can kids have this much fun in church.

Hiking

Thousands of acres and miles of trails through God's beautiful creation. Explore the trails and experience vistas that will take your breath away.

Zip Tour

Our dual line tour features FIVE sections of fast-moving zip lines stretched high above the alpine floor. Each section give you a different experience. Bring a friend!

Zip Drop

This is like a normal zip line, only a little more loosy-goosey, with special tethers that let you drift to the ground like a parachuter coming in for a landing.

Tree Rappelling

What's better than the view of the forest from the treetops? The trip back down of course. This is why ropes go with trees like campfires go with singalongs.

Treehouse Challenge Course

Quietly nestled in the pines is a diabolical treehouse designed to test both your mental and physical abilities. Only the best problem solvers will prevail!

Waterfront Decks

Water you waiting for? Take a dip and a drop from any one of our numerous decks rigged with ropes, slides, blobs and more. Look out below, and bombs away!

Indoor Superswing

Hey camper, camper. Hey camper, camper. Swing! Harness up and take a big leap of faith. Only at Glorieta can kids have this much fun in church.

Inflatables

We're not just full of hot air when we say, "If it inflates, it's great!" Bounce through our collection of endless obstacles and feel your excitement balloon.

Climbing Grotto

Test your grip and your core strength on our Swiss army knife of climbing sweetness. This tower can test and inspire almost any level of climber.

Bouldering Blocks

Brand new to rock climbing? These colorful blocks are just right for learning the basics and getting the 'hang' of climbing without getting too far off the ground.

Mountain Scooters

This ain't your smooth driveway and these things take scootering to a whole new level. Hop on and go for the ride of your life while trying to keep up!

Drift Trikes

Fuzzy wristbands, Keds, and sliding sideways on a Big Wheel made for some serious street cred back in the day. Well, we've amped it up.

Field Games

Guaranteed to break the ice. This is camp-olympics! From scavenger hunts to more inventive contests, you're sure to make a few new friends along the way.

Games of Skill... Or Not.

It doesn't matter if you are "super coordinated" or not; you'll still have massive fun in our crazy games. A good time will be had by all... or else!

Ga-Ga Ball

Ga-ga wha? Trust us, it's not for babies. Part dodge ball, part tag and part king of the hill, it takes action to another level. Stay with it. Rule the octagon!

Arrow TAG

We are hunters, and adventure is our game. We are unstoppable, and you are our prey. Take aim and bring 'em down. Before they get you!

Redneck Paintball

Think paintball with slingshots. Don't let the name fool you, your neck is well protected. Your pride, however, is not. Think fast! They come at you from all sides.

Crate Stacking

You've never stacked anything like this. Ever. It takes nerve, balance and a lot of patience to build a tower this high. Stand on top without tumbling for the win.

Obstacle Course

There's no easing into this, so jump right in! From there, you're climbing through our bouncy crash course. You'll love ducking, diving, and dodging to the end.

Little Kid Zip

The high-flying thrill of our zip lines can be a lot. That's why we've developed a course that's just right for building confidence in our younger campers.

Disc Golf

To heck with the clubs; grab a disk and join the fun. It's all in your swing... or is it the fling? This is the perfect place to test your skills at a high level.

Sand Volleyball

Bring it on. Serve it up. Spike, slam, wham, attack - Let your competitive spirit take over. You'll need it. Dig, set, spin, spike! Leave the campfire for day's end.

Basketball

There's nothing better than a game of high altitude hoops. Pick up moves with other campers from around the country, or take 'em to school like you do at home.

Mini Golf

If putting around is your thing, we have the perfect way to pass an afternoon. This classic family sport is best under the pines, with a nice summer breeze.

Coffee Shop

There's no fancy mermaid on these cups. This is real grounds for sittin' and sippin', Lower Rockies style. Order up, bust out the board games and let's chat.
