Location

Mountain Friends Camp is located at the Santa Fe Tree House Camp, 12 miles from Santa Fe, New Mexico (Driving Directions). Our host is a nonprofit organization with decades of summer camp experience. Facilities include six cozy “tree house” cabins, an indoor-outdoor kitchen, indoor bathhouse, crafts and program buildings, a pavilion for dancing and performances, and a low ropes course. Our camp is secluded on 150 acres, with 1.5 mile boarder with Santa Fe National Forest, located very near the historic Santa Fe Trail! We love to explore the nearby Apache Canyon and Shaggy Peak on day trips and overnights, and are planning an optional adventure hike to Glorietta Baldy!

At camp, the cabins are very rustic, with about 4 steps/ladders to enter and no water, and in some no electricity, inside the cabins. While we do our best to prevent hazards, there is still rough wood, and possible sharp edges or exposed nails. The beds are all single bunk beds.The trails and paths at camp are rough, requiring the ability to walk over rough, steep, rocky, and loose soil. There is only one bathhouse with running water for multi-stall showers and toilets a 5-10  minute walk from the cabins, the other options are be porta-potties. We love the simple life at camp, the sweet smell of the ponderosa pines and the amazing night sky.
