|Wehinahpay Mountain Camp
The Boy Scout camp in New Mexico’s Sacramento Mountains is ideally located for an outstanding Boy Scout mountain camp summer experience. The camp is 300 acres of private property surrounded by the Lincoln County National Forest. Scenic Potato Canyon features open grassy meadows along a mountain stream and the hillsides are covered in pine, fir, and aspen forests.
At 8,500 foot elevation, the camping season is comfortably cool, has low humidity, and no mosquitoes, chiggers, ticks, or poisonous snakes.
There is wildlife in the camp. Elk are seen daily and the occasional turkey, coyote, or bear will wander through camp, though these are shy animals. Raccoons and skunks are sometimes seen.
With a “block program schedule” the camp has open program on Wednesday. This schedule allows time for out-of-council troops to go sightseeing to such places as White Sands National Monument, Alamogordo Space Museum, Sunspot National Solar Observatory, Three Rivers Petroglyph National Monument, or just “kick back” and relax in camp or take a hike in the surrounding mountains.
