Celebrate Great Outdoors Month with Us at Barker!
June is Great Outdoors Month across the nation. Governor Martinez has adopted a Proclamation, naming June as New Mexico’s “Great Outdoors Month.” Why is this important? Children across the nation aren’t spending enough time outdoors. Our Great Outdoors Days give us the opportunity to recognize our supporters and donors, tour camp, have a camp experience by eating in the dining hall with the campers, and learn more about our outdoor initiatives. Join us as we celebrate the Great Outdoors Month at each of our camps:
