In true mountain camp fashion, Camp Tres Ritos offers patrol style cooking and merit badge classes that take place in the stunning outdoors. Campers will have the opportunity on Wednesday to take a break from merit badge course work and participate in hikes and special classes that may include cooking, survival skills, and all things cast iron. This unique week long, mountain experience is a chance to get outdoors. Come cool down from the summer heat in the Mountains of New Mexico.
