Fenton Ranch Summer Camp

Fenton Summer Camp is an overnight residential camp. Students enrolled in camp enjoy the kind of activities that encourage growth and exploration. These include exploring nature, fishing, hiking, songs, skits, camping, journaling, canoeing, archery, and arts and crafts. Participating in these experiences helps foster respect and an appreciation for nature. Our summer staff puts an emphasis on positive social interactions among the students by encouraging teamwork, taking responsibility, and safety. The camp experience also develops independence, self-confidence, and creative thinking.

Fenton Ranch is located in the Jemez Mountains a few miles past Fenton Lake State Park. Parents must provide all transportation to and from the camp. Drop off starts at 10:30 a.m. on the day camp starts with pick up is at 12:30 p.m. on the day camp ends.

Fenton Summer Camp is open to Manzano Day School students who are currently enrolled in kindergarten through fifth grade as well as Manzano Day School alumni in sixth and seventh grades.
