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 Elliott Barker is home to a pond, high and low ropes course, a small historic dining hall, plenty of hiking trails, New Mexico’s oldest working horse barn, and one 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 Dining Hall.

Campers will visit the Wishing Chair, canoe or swim at Blackbird pond, do arts & crafts, visit our on-site observatory, and hike through the Underworld. Troops and families can also experience the adventure by attending one of our weekend camps or by renting the camp to have their own camp adventure.


What makes Barker an “adventure” camp?

Water sports and off camp trips!

Barker’s location in Angel Fire, near Taos Canyon and Eagle Nest Lake, allows us to take campers on out of camp trips for rock climbing, river rafting, and camping/canoeing at the lake. Barker is also home to our high ropes course with a zip line and a Blackbird pond for canoeing and swimming. Barker also offers some “traditional” camp activities as well such as arts and crafts, hiking, outdoor cooking, and astronomy.
