Make Memories This Summer at Ghost Ranch

Every year, Ghost Ranch offers the opportunity for an unforgettable summer. This year is no different! Youth programming, including offerings for teenagers, along with a very special Family Week (hot air balloons, anyone?), will make your summer one to foster familial, environmental and community connections. Join us this summer! 

Family Week

Sunday, June 30 – Saturday, July 6
The most economical and fun week of family activities in the West! A family of four can stay the week in premium lodging, eat three meals a day, participate in activities and enjoy the majestic landscape for just $1,525! That’s less than $400 per person! Rooms with communal baths and camping are even less! (See website for additional options.)
Start a new tradition at Ghost Ranch – or continue an old one. Family Week is a time to gather with your family and ours and spend a week playing, creating, learning, growing and having FUN.
Schedule includes morning workshops. Afternoons are free to relax, hike and spend time with family and new friends. Also included in Family Week is a Fourth of July Celebration! Enjoy a parade, games, and activities for kids and a BBQ. New this year is the presence of several hot air balloons for a night glow! Click here for more information.

Youth Programming

While you spend mornings and evenings immersed in your workshop, your children spend mornings and evenings experiencing all kinds of activities, some familiar and some brand new under the guidance of our trained staff.
An in-house curriculum will help youth make connections and create community among children of diverse ages and backgrounds using the following themes and patterns: Expressive Arts / Outdoor Adventure / Campfire-Campout / Spirituality & Faith / Exploring the Cultural Gifts of Northern New Mexico / Art with Local Spanish and Puebloan Artists / Paleontology / Taking Care of the Land and Each Other / Yard Games / Music / FUN!
Some adult workshops have afternoon or all-day schedules; please note these times when registering so you can plan for your child’s care during the periods of the day that have no scheduled youth activities. Child care is not provided. Spontaneous co-ops of parents and relatives are often organized. Click here for more information and to enroll. 

Senior High Initiative – for teenagers only!

Offered the same weeks as listed above, for visitors ages 15-18. Whether this is your first year at Ghost Ranch or your fifth, come see the Ranch from a different perspective using a variety of arts mediums normally only available to adults taking courses. Take advantage of all the resources the Ranch has to offer, including hiking, boating, and an overnight campout under the stars! Bring a friend, or even two, for a memorable adventure in Georgia O’Keeffe’s backyard! Click here for more information and to enroll!
