Winter and Spring Break Day Camps
Get Outdoors (G.O.) with us during your school break to do some rock climbing, hiking, mountain biking, art, music, learning wilderness skills or all of the above! We will be taking day trips to explore nature and find adventure in the wild places of New Mexico. Sign up for three days (which can be any three days that you choose), or for the entire week!
