Based in the Taos Ski Valley and designed for children from first grade and up, our camps focus on hands-on learning experiences. Throughout each of the two week day camp sessions, we focus on several different themes (archeology, river ecology, wildlife biology, orienteering, etc.). We explore each theme and our surroundings through hikes, field notes and drawings, organized activities, art projects, and games. The older children sessions include an overnight. We also offer two one week sessions that include backpacking trips.
