PEEC’s summer camps are held outdoors in the beautiful nature of Los Alamos and the Jemez Mountains, with plenty of time for hiking, fort building, playing, learning about nature, and splashing in water. Parents of previous campers have said:

Every day she returned home with a new exciting story. She loved the teachers and the other students.

This was a fantastic week! What a great program.

She made excellent friends.

He was excited to attend every day. 

The camps are a great opportunity for children to unplug and spend time screen-free, getting dirty, having adventures, and making new friends. Cortright says, “Parents always thank us for tiring their kids out every day, and the camps are filled with returning students every year so we know the kids are having a great time. We look forward to welcoming more campers in 2022!”
