Adventure Retreats

Ideal for: School Groups       |       Grades: K – College       |       Dates: TBD

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.

Rock Climbing

Wilderness Hiking

From short hikes with a view, to longer journeys winding through National Forest trails, adventure is out here!

Archery Tag

Equipped with padded arrows and bow on an extensive wooded course full of secret hide-outs, bring your opponents down in a classic game of TAG and many other competitions!

Drift Trikes

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

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.

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

With full-body harnesses and an entire team required to run this swing, there's a reason we call it "super!"

Terrain Park

Whether you're a newbie or a BMX pro, a lap around our berms and jumps is sure to give you an adrenaline rush.

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.

Whitewater Rafting

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.

Crate Stacking

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.

Via Ferrata

Challenge yourself to traverse "the Iron Way"- where mountaineering meets obstacle course.

The Blob!

Partner up and send your friend sailing through the air by jumping onto this giant inflatable pillow at our Waterfront!

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.

Mountain Scooters

Ever thought to put mountain bike tires on a Razor scooter? Hop on for a ride you won't soon forget!

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.

Ga-Ga Ball

Ga-ga wha? Part dodge ball, part tag and part King of the Hill, it takes action to another level. Rule the octagon!

Blacklight Dodgeball

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.

Arbor Climb

Tree climbing on a whole different level.

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.

Obstacle Course

Inflatables meet Waterfront. A combination that makes for quite the slippery match!

Sand Volleyball

For classic games of 2-on-2 to 50-player Nuke 'Em, we have sandy courts for everyone to enjoy!

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!

Sports Courts

There's nothing better than a game of high altitude hoops. Or how about a match of mountain tennis? This is the place!

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, t-shirts, and other knick-knacks!

Hang Time

There are plenty of places around camp to relax. Stake a claim in our hammock village for the best way to enjoy the mountain breeze.

Waterfront Decks

Decks rigged with rope swings, water zip lines, monkey bars, water slides, and more! We've got plenty to keep you busy staying cool in our Waterfront.

Inflatables

From epic Wipeout-style obstacles to King of the Hill with a wrecking ball, we've got all the classic inflatables along with some you've never seen!

Coffee Shop

A place for a rejuvenating cup o' joe, quality conversations, board games, and kicking your feet up.

Disc Golf

An 18-hole course that spans our entire main campus, this is the perfect place to test your disc golf skills! It's all in your swing... or is it the fling?

Campouts

Gather round the campfire on cool evenings and sleep under the Milky Way to really experience the wilderness of camp!

Adventure Upgrades are a way for us to keep the cost of camp low for everyone while also offering extra adventures to those who want them. We offer one package: “Whitewater Rafting Trip“. See details below and if you would like to add it, just be sure and choose the option during the Sign Up process.

WHITEWATER RAFTING

It’s like navigating a torrent of liquid adrenaline while being yelled at to paddle harder, faster, this way and that – or else – you’re going swimming involuntarily. Suddenly the reason for the helmets and life jackets becomes crystal clear to you. This couldn’t be more fun!To add this to your camp experience, choose this option during the Sign Up process.
