Contact - Summer Camps in New Mexico for Kids & Teens

1. Cottonwood Gulch Summer Expeditions
Courses / Programs
Based in Albuquerque NM, the Cottonwood Gulch Foundation provides a wide range of educational wilderness expeditions and outdoor summer programs for kids and teens ages 10-19, as well as Family programs and Adult programs. Our wilderness expeditions take place in the heart of the American Southwest, and promote personal growth, scientific, historic, and cultural discovery as well as a knowledgeable environmental ethic among all those who participate.

Based in New Mexico, our Summer Expeditions range from 2-6 weeks, and are for kids ages 10-19. No expertise is needed to join, just a sense of adventure and a desire to learn about the animals, art, and unique culture of the Southwest.

We have been leading wilderness expeditions in the Southwest since 1926. Our groups visit different ecosystems of the Four Corners states: New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, and Colorado — red rock canyons, high desert mesas and alpine ranges — to play and explore. We explore mostly on foot, backpacking and day-hiking into the back-country, but we also sometimes canoe through river canyons.

2. Hummingbird Music Camp
Courses / Programs
Located in the Jemez Springs area of Central New Mexico, just an hour north of Albuquerque, Hummingbird Music Camp provides week-long residential summer music camps to boys and girls ages 8-14.

Beginner to advanced level group ensembles are offered, including: band, guitar, orchestra, piano and voice specializations. We also provide 1-week Art Camps and Chess Camps which run alongside our dedicated Music Camps.

In addition to musical activities, campers also take part in traditional camp events such as campfires with original camp songs and skits, overnight hikes, storytelling and outdoor cookouts.

Although music is taken very seriously at the camp, the focus is not on competition. Our campers are encouraged to grow musically on their chosen instruments by starting their musical instruction at their current level of ability.

Our Teachers range from undergraduate, graduate students and professional teachers. The majority of our instructors teach in public and private schools throughout the year. Most of the teachers teach two weeks at camp and return year after year. The average staff return rate is 95%.
