Location: Collins Lake Ranch, Mora, New Mexico: This has been our location since 2017, and we’re looking forward to returning to the ranch and creating community with new friends and neighbors. Collins Lake Ranch provides support and programs for a few adults with developmental disabilities year round, our camp is in a beautiful new yurt campground.

Ages: Campers are ages 10-15 or entering 5th-10th grade in the fall, with 9-year-olds admitted on a case by case basis. Teens ages 16-17 can apply to serve as Counselors in Training. Some 17 year olds, who have graduated from high school and/or successfully completed a summer as a CIT may apply for a paid staff position.

Spaces is limited to 20-25 campers per session. Returning campers will be given the chance to register one week earlier than new families. If there is a waitlist, Mountain Friends Camp may give preference to families who are members or attenders of a Quaker Meeting within Intermountain Yearly Meeting, and consider the balance of camper ages and genders.

Two Health Forms are required for every camper (including counselors in training).  The first is the health profile from parents/guardians, and the second must be completed and signed by your child’s healthcare provider. These will be submitted through our online registration process, or you can request a paper copy.
