  • Drop off is between 2-4 pm and pick up is between 10am-12 pm.
  • $700 per week is the actual cost pricing, a completely voluntary higher price. Paying this amount covers our actual operating costs for one camper-week and helps make it possible for lower income families to afford camp. You will receive a donation receipt for any amount over the regular cost. The pricing structure you chose has no impact on the registration process or your child’s experience at Mountain Friends Camp.
  • $50 discount for 2nd and additional campers in the same family
  • $75 discount for campers attending both youth sessions. Campers staying for all three weeks will spend the night of July 11 off site, either with their parents or with prearranged hosts.
  •  $50-$80 deposit is nonrefundable. All other payments, including arrangements for camperships, are due June 1 or immediately when registering later, and nonrefundable after that date. We prefer check payments for the balance.
  • Partial need-based camperships are available.

Location: Collins Lake Ranch, Mora, New Mexico: This is our third year with Collins Lake Ranch, and we’re looking forward to returning to the rural location and creating community with new friends and neighbors. Collins Lake Ranch provides support and programs for a few adults with developmental disabilities year round, and we’ll help in the organic garden, land stewardship, and with a few farm animals. More information and pictures on our Location Page
