Summer Camp and Wilderness Treks
In the summer, Ascend hosts week long summer camps and wilderness programs in the beautiful Sangre De Christo Mountains of Northern New Mexico. Our lodge is situated at a cool 7000ft above sea level. We have three different tracks to choose from, so that we will be sure to provide a powerful life-changing experience that meets the needs of your group. All tracks include daily discipleship and worship times. Food, lodging, gear and instruction are included with all programs.

Adventure Track

Join us for 4 days of adventure programs designed to challenge your group and help them grow closer to God and closer to each other. Hiking, climbing, rappeling, and whitewater paddling in the Sangre De Cristo Mountains and Rio Grande Gorge promise to be experiences that your group will never forget. This track includes a rest day with multiple recreation options.

Mission Track

Our mission track provides hands on service opportunities to the local community in the Taos area. Your group will have the chance to experience 2-3 days of the same amazing adventures as our adventure track, and also 2-3 days of service projects.
