Group and Summer Camp Facilities
Group and Summer Camp housing is situated in the heart of our campus. Just a short walk away from the dining hall, coffee shop, sports courts, trails and games fields, there’s never a long hike to find a gathering place or activities. Dorm rooms are bunk style with an in-room sink and have shared toilet and shower areas. Many lodge locations feature large communal areas for chatting and relaxing with friends.
Family Camp Facilities
These are hotel-style rooms, with a full private bathrooms and the option of two queen-size beds or one king-size bed. Some rooms are adjoining to accommodate families needing multiple rooms. Our rooms allow your family to be close to the action and provide an opportunity for fellowship and community with other families. Family Camp lodging also offers a dedicated dining hall, spacious communal areas with wifi and comfy seating, retail, coffee shop and more.
General Camp Facilities
Our 2,400-acre campus located about 15 miles southeast of Santa Fe, was founded as the Black Diamond Baptist Assembly in 1952. Black Diamond Camps has room for more than 2,000 overnight guests. Built on a deep desire to expand the rich history of Black Diamond, we’ve restored the campus and its buildings, and filled them with outdoor adventure activities and programs that are loaded with fun and tailored to inspire lives towards a deeper relationship with Christ.
From the well-equipped common areas and sunny courtyards, to coffee shops and retail areas, you’ll find groups playing games, deep in discussion or quiet study. Take a short walk to the Firehouse and challenge your friends to a game of air hockey or an impromptu singalong. Or head over to the Gypsie Wagon for a quick snack. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a spot on campus where campers aren’t gathered.
There are plenty of places to relax, think and quietly diffuse. Stake a claim at one of the many hammocks that are open for grabs. Find a soft patch of grass in one of our courtyard areas or find your own rock overlooking the waterfront. Take a shaded stroll through virgin aspen stands or reflect as you hike to one of our many scenic overlooks. Breath in the fresh mountain air. Now exhale.
There’s no fancy mermaid on these cups. This is real grounds for sittin’ and sippin’, Lower Rockies style. Order up, bust out the board games and let’s chat. Our Family Camp courtyard location provides a quiet indoor spot with plenty of mellow light and comfy seating for curling up with a Good Book. Or try our Firehouse location for a more lively outdoor vibe.
Forgot your sweatshirt? Need an extra water bottle or a clean pair of socks? The Black Diamond gear just keeps getting better every year. Stock up and let your friends know where you spent the summer. Find one in the Family Camp courtyard, complete with ice cream shop and game room. And another at the Firehouse, with plenty of games, music and outdoor seating.
