Summer Camp Lottery is OPEN


2022 Outdoor Adventure Camp is a FREE summer camp community collaboration between Nature Niños New Mexico and Albuquerque Sign Language Academy. We will provide a hands-on, inclusive learning environment carefully tailored to support each student's unique needs to flourish and reach their full potential within the outdoors! Our priority is to encourage meaningful and lasting connections between our youth and the natural world. We hope to inspire a new generation of land, water, and wildlife stewards to protect and foster creative solutions to the long-term care of our planet while nature helps to nourish their social and emotional health and wellbeing.

  • All children attending must be entering 4th through 9th grades in August 2022.
  • A child is only eligible to attend ONE session of Outdoor Adventure Camp during summer 2022
  • Priority will be given to applicants attending a partnering school and/or low-income households.

Camps will run Monday - Friday from 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. for three 3-week sessions.
Session 1: June 6th - June 24th
Session 2: June 27th - July 15th
Session 3: July 18th - August 5th

2022 Outdoor Adventure Camp will be held at multiple locations across the city. We are working to solidify schedules with our partnering locations.

We MAY have transportation options offered but families will need to be prepared to drop off & pick up their child from any of the locations listed below as part of camp. We will also do our best to encourage carpool options with families in similar areas of the city.

Transportation & locations will be solidified and shared with all families that are offered a spot before they commit to accepting.
