Hummingbird Camp Resort has three distinct campuses each with many delightful settings that are perfect for meetings, conferences, retreats, dances, concerts and other events. The camp is bursting with various varieties of trees including fruit orchards and stands of Ponderosa Pines. Be on the lookout for hawks, ravens, eagles and wild turkeys as well as many kinds of smaller birds as you walk along the river. The Jemez River meanders through the 53 acre property, and you are sure to see other critters along the banks and in the water.
Take a stroll through Hummingbird Camp Resort’s South Campus. Our main campus has many unique features for your group to enjoy. The lodging spaces include 2 large dormitories, the Greenhouse which sleeps 62 people and Pierson Hall which sleeps 52 people. These dormitories have large, airy rooms with bunk beds and shared bathroom facilities. The Greenhouse has room for meetings and/or rehearsals as well. There are also 7 newly remodeled cabins on the South Campus that offer modern amenities. They have guest capacity ranging from 2 to 7 people.
There are large grassy fields for games like soccer or kickball and a basketball and volleyball court on the South Campus. Of course one can always take a walk along the river and stick your fishing pole in wherever you like. It is stocked frequently by the local fish hatchery. Several gazebos with seating dot the landscape where you can meet, rehearse, read or simply sit and relax. One of these is in our memorial rose garden. You should see it when the roses are in bloom!
Adjacent to the rose garden is a fountain and pond with golden carp in it. The pond lines the sidewalk entrance to Hummingbird Camp Retreat’s Dining Hall and lounge. There are two dining rooms. One is a huge room with gigantic windows that look out on the Jemez Mountains. Redondo Peak is featured in these spectacular views. This dining room is filled with tables and benches that can seat up to 200 campers. The other is more intimate with smaller tables and chairs. It seats up to 30 people. Self serve tea and coffee are available here 24/7, and you’ll find Wanda Higgins next to the coffee machine at all meals. She’ll be 97 this summer. Be sure to say “Hi” and give her a hug.
The lounge in the Dining Hall has a large fireplace in one corner and is filled with comfortable, living room furniture. There are cupboards filled with games to play and a couple of tables with built-in chess boards. The lounge is a popular place for a small group meetings, rehearsals or classes.
Next to the lounge is the kitchen where you’ll find the friendliest cooks in the Jemez, Chip and Dulcy. Ask ’em for a Hummingbird Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie. You’ll be glad you did 😉 All of our meals are prepared fresh, and we accommodate all manner of dietary needs. Call or e-mail the camp to request a menu, and we will send you one.
The Beehive at Hummingbird Camp Retreat is a cozy conference center right next to the South Campus. The upstairs of this totally remodeled barn has two sun-filled dormitories that contain bunk beds and have shared bathroom facilities. Downstairs is a spacious meeting room and 4 bedrooms that sleep two people each. There is a bathroom for every two of these bedrooms and a sink and mirror in each room. The Beehive lies beneath the majesty of gorgeous mountain vistas and is surrounded by oak and pine trees. There’s a fire pit on the south end of the Beehive where you can build a campfire, sing songs, tell stories, and roast marshmallows. It’s a short walk to fishing in the Jemez River which is stocked monthly.
There is plenty of parking at the Beehive Campus and there’s a cabin called the T-House that has 4 bed rooms and sleeps 4-6 people if your group needs more lodging space. A couple of newly remodeled, totally up-to-date luxurious cabins are tucked in the forest just behind the T-House as well. Book the Beehive for an intimate event in an enchanting setting.
Travel north on the road that winds through Hummingbird Camp Retreat and you’ll arrive at the North Campus. This tranquil spot has 3 buildings, 2 for lodging and one for gatherings. The buildings called Chaco and Acoma have 10 bedrooms that sleep 2 people. There is a sink in each room. Showers and toilets are off the main foyer in each building.
The third building is called Harmony Hall and has a spacious meeting room that is ideal for large group meetings, dances, workshops, or demonstrations. There is a kitchen in Harmony Hall that is currently being upgraded, so that cooking can take place there. Now it functions well as a place for coffee, snacks and meals that do not require cooking. There is a bedroom adjacent to the kitchen that sleeps 1 or 2 people. In all the North Campus can comfortably sleep 42 people. There is also plenty of space for RV’s and tents.
The North Campus has a picnic area with a large covered area where meetings, dances, lectures and more can take place out-of-doors. Just beyond the Shell is a fire pit with wooden seating all around it. This locale is ideal for ghost stories, songs and s’mores.
