Based in El Prado and Taos Ski Valley, New Mexico and utilizing the local outdoor environment, our exciting summer camps and after-school mountain bike sessions are focused on adventure, natural sciences, and local culture. Our primary goals are to provide experiential, environmental education, promote the learning of outdoor skills, and encourage an active, healthy lifestyle.

Based in Taos Ski Valley since 1996 and designed for youth entering first grade and up, our outdoor education camps focus on active, hands-on learning experiences. Throughout each of the two-week day camp sessions, we focus on several different themes (archaeology, 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’s two-week sessions include overnight camping trips. We also offer one-week sessions that include backpacking trips, extended camping trips, mountain bike adventures (both local and beyond) and special topics.
