CAMP

TRESRITOS

Located in the Sangre De Cristo Mountains of New Mexico, Camp Tres Ritos offers a terrific high-altitude mountain camping experience, access to some of the finest hiking locations and some of the most spectacular scenery in the country. In true mountain camp fashion, Camp Tres Ritos offers patrol style cooking and merit badge classes that take place in the stunning outdoors. This unique week long, mountain experience is a chance to get out doors. Campers will also enjoy a troop day where they can hike, climb, or whitewater raft.
