Ideal for: School Groups, Youth Groups, Class Trips | Grades: K – College | Dates: August – May
Adventure is our teacher. Our classroom, God’s Creation.
Live it. Touch it. Experience it to the utmost.
Your student retreat 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.
*Whitewater rafting availability is limited. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve spots. Additional Fee is $55 Per Person.

Wanting to really kick your adventurous spirit into gear?! We partner with New Mexico River Adventures to offer a rafting experience you won't soon forget.
It turns out, a pile of milk crates can be quite the challenge! It takes balance, focus, and strategy to build as you climb higher and higher. Bet you can't make it to 20.

Ga-ga wha? Part dodge ball, part tag and part King of the Hill, it takes action to another level. Rule the octagon!
Variations on the classic game, kicked up a notch. From free-for-alls to zombie matches, dodgeball under the glow of these lights can be trickier than you think.
Tree climbing on a whole different level.
It's like a cross between basketball, soccer, hockey, polo and demolition derby on our awesome drift trikes. Hard to explain. Amazing to play.
Inflatables meet Waterfront. A combination that makes for quite the slippery match!
