Adventure Retreats

Ideal for: School Groups       |       Grades: K – College       |       Dates: October 4th – 7th

Adventure is our teacher. Our classroom, God’s Creation.

Live it. Touch it. Experience it to the utmost.

A 3-day getaway retreat that can be custom tailored to meet the needs of student groups of any grade from kindergarten through college. An experience that allows teachers and their students to connect and grow together, surrounded by the beauty of the Southern Rockies.

Explore. Do things. Learn more!

Give your students an experience they’ll talk about long after they’ve graduated. Our Rocky Mountain campus located in the southern Sangre de Cristo Mountains of New Mexico is the perfect place to experience programs designed to enhance students’ educational experience. Our student retreats are centered on outdoor adventure, authentic relationships and Biblical truth. We offer programs focused backpacking, service projects, outdoor education or special certifications. It’s custom-built exploration that transcends the classroom and goes way beyond book learning. Because no journey carries us far unless it extends into the world around us and goes an equal distance within.

Bomb the Blob!

Climb. Leap! Plop! Launch! Whoa! Splash! Climb. Leap! Plop! Launch! Whoa! Splash! Repeat again and again until we wear 'em out.

Outdoor Rock Climbing

If you're a thrill seeker who'd like to feel a little "boulder", we accommodate all skill levels in many different climbing styles. For those about to rock, we salute you!

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.

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.

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.

Terrain Park

Take a chain-grinding, quad-shredding lap or two around our wicked dirt tracks, bust out a few of those moves you practiced, and soar to glory.

Drift Ball

It's like a cross between basketball, soccer, hockey, polo and demolition derby on our awesome drift trikes. Hard to explain. Amazing to play. Try it.

Mario Kart

Mario Kart is a series of go-kart-style racing video games developed and published by Nintendo as spin-offs from its trademark Super Mario series.

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!

Mud Pit Melee

Grit your teeth for an untethered free-for-all. Here's mud in your eye... and between your toes... and behind your ears..

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!

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?

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.

Via Ferrata

It's serious mountaineering without the imminent danger. Ascend cliff faces and negotiate overhangs. You can yodel all the way up... if you can catch your breath.

Slingshots

These are no toys, but they are a lot of fun. We may not be slaying giants, but you will get good target practice. Take aim. Hold your breath. Steady. And...

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Dodgeball

There's nothing like the unmistakable tread of a new red dodgeball. It provides good grip. And a recognizable pattern on the side of your face. Respect the ball!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

Gypsy Wagon

This colorful little wagon is a mobile store loaded with treats. It's part truck, part house, part rainbow and one of the many wonders you'll find at Glorieta.

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.

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.

Arbor Climb

Do you love the woods? Well, harness up, because you're about to get closer to nature than ever before. This is tree climbing brought to another level.

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.

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!
