G.O. Summer Trek

7 Days of Adventure, Art and STEM 

Interested in a summer expedition but just don’t have a lot of time?  Located at our Base Camp in the Zuni Mountains, this New Mexico summer camp is a great trek for kids that have a lot of summer plans or can only be at sleepaway camp for a week.  G.O. treks are geared for local kids (although we welcome all) looking to ignite their summer with adventure, exploration and discovery.  Join us for 7 fun-filled days based at our base camp in the Zuni Mountains of Western New Mexico.  Each day you will wake up in rustic open air cabins surrounded by nature in a Ponderosa and Juniper forest.  We will pack up for the day and take off in search of a combination of pre-planned and serendipitous discovery with options from the beginner to the skilled explorer. In the evenings, we will return to base camp for dinner, games and campfire activities.  Prepare yourself for a star-filled sky with more constellations than you can see in the city.  Get ready to play hard and make a lot of new friends. This exciting week of summer camp programming will bring you epic activities combined with skill-builder intensives including;


Top Rope Rock Climbing

Red Rock Slot Canyoneering

Single Track Mountain Biking

Caving in El Malpais Lava Tubes
