Summer Camps

NMWC is bringing back our very popular summer science camps again this summer! If you’re interested, let us know as soon as possible, because these will definitely fill up. Camps will take place at Heron Lake State Park, Abiquiu Lake, and for the first time… at NMWC! For more information about past summer camps and our activities, check out these blog posts.

Who: students entering 4th-6th grade in Northern New Mexico (please note that at this time we are unable to accept any student younger than entering 4th grade, as many of our activities would prove challenging and possibly unsafe for smaller children)


  • June 12-16: Heron Lake State Park (pick up in Tierra Amarilla); $100/student*
  • June 26-30: Abiquiu Lake State Park (pick up at Bode’s in Abiquiu); $100/student*
  • July 17-21: NMWC (possible pick up in Santa Fe, depending on demand); $200/student*

What: Fun summer camps with a science-based theme! Camps at Abiquiu and Heron Lakes are highly adventure-based. We typically start out with a hike or kayak, have lunch, spend some down time learning science and survival skills, then swim before heading home. Students must be comfortable being in and around water, although all students will be required to wear a life jacket while boating and swimming. The new camp at NMWC will be centered on learning about wildlife. Participants will get an up close look at our education animals and learn what we do to rehabilitate injured animals.

Why: We believe that every child deserves the opportunity to go to a fun summer camp. We also know that the key to conserving our native animals and their habitats is teaching kids about the science of ecosystems and how we’re all connected.

*Prices for camps are based on sponsorships. We do have some scholarships available (email Christy at address below). We’re still searching for a sponsor for our final camp to reduce the cost for our kids. If you’re interested in sponsorship opportunities for these camps, please email christy@newmexicowildlifecenter.org.
