An interview with Bishop’s Lodge Activities Director Morgan Dawson
Keeping the young cowboys and cowgirls active always a fun challenge. Whether it’s morning, parents, kids will stay in the saddle with Camp Appaloosa. We recently sat down with our new Activities Coordinator Morgan to find out which activities will keep the buckaroos busy this summer.
Having past experience as a student activities coordinator at Santa Fe University of Art and Design, Morgan was more than ready to become a member of the Bishop’s Lodge team. Drawn to the ranch’s breathtaking scenery, award winning reputation, and amazing visitors, Morgan was excited to share her creative ideas for new activities.
When asked what activities she looked forward to at Camp Appaloosa, Morgan was excited in telling us how she loved, “Tastefully Terrific Day, where campers decorate freshly baked cookies, make their own menus, as well as make personalized chef hats.” She continued, “our new Safari Day, where campers and counselors go on a breathtaking hike throughout the Santa Fe countryside is also a total blast.”
Morgan has done a wonderful job in organizing amazing activities such as Blastoff Day. Blastoff Day is a one day activity where campers can create and color their own zing wing glider, along with a moon place mat, then go outside and fly their creations. Toward the end of the day, campers will be divided into two teams, Aliens vs. Astronauts, to play against each other in a game of ‘capture the flag’ with water balloons!
You would think one of Morgan’s most favorite and memorable activities would be of the three listed above, but she points out that her most memorable activity was a recent carnival the ranch put on. “It was amazing and the kids had so much fun throughout the day.”
“Don’t delay in joining in the experience! You can sign up the day of for our camps – you can even make special arrangements for afternoon sessions,” said Morgan. “The counselors are astounding at making every kid feel like the day is all about him or her. If all the kids want to go on a hike instead of swimming, we will. Remember its all about creating memories, and having fun!”
Morgan can be found at Bishop’s Lodge all summer, so come on by or give her a call at 505-992-3605 to find out how you can reserve your child’s adventure at Bishop Lodge!
