Camp Elliott Barker
Camp Elliott Barker: a High Adventure Camp
Angel Fire, New Mexico
On the eastern slopes of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, in Angel Fire, our 536-acre camp sits in the midst of pristine forest and meadows bordering the Carson National Forest. Camp Barker is a high adventure camp that offers a high and low ropes course, archery, horse programming, multi-night backpacking, and traditional camp activities as well as high adventure programming with canoeing, rock climbing, and whitewater rafting.
Camp Elliott Barker has heated cabins, a modern dining hall, miles of trails, and a primitive outpost. Housing Units include platform tents and cabins with cots or bunk beds with mattresses. Each unit has campfire circles and wash areas with sinks and latrines.
Camp Elliott Barker celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2013. A brand new shower and bathroom facility was installed in the Aspen Glen cabin unit in 2017. Meals are served family style in Hoffman Hall. Girls will visit the Wishing Chair, explore the newly revitalized Blackbird Pond, do arts & crafts, visit our on-site observatory, and hike through Aspen Grove. Troops and families can also experience the adventure by attending one of our weekend camps with their girls or by renting the camp to have their own camp adventure.
