Wilderness Ridge

Authentic wilderness leadership experiences with a purpose

WR Adventures are BACK!


Camp Wilderness Ridge is excited to offer once again out-bound wilderness adventures for boys ages 13-21.

This July, join us on one of two trips to the rugged & beautiful Sangre de Cristo Mountains of Northern New Mexico. With cool summer temps, beautiful vistas, & peaks in the 13,000 foot range, the Sangres have been a wonderful playground and classroom for campers & staff of Camp Wilderness Ridge for years.

We'll be traversing both the Carson & Sante Fe National Forests, as well as the Pecos Wilderness.
