Spider Search at Ghost Ranch, N. M.

After each day of adventure and fun, we all gather together for outstanding evening programs.

The first evening, we welcome our guests from all over America (and a few other countries) to the Summit and to the unique aspects of this year’s location.
The last evening, we celebrate the week with the ever-popular skits from the youth and a fantastic slide show recapping the week’s highlights. Come watch to see if your pictures have made it into the slideshow this year?

After a day of fun and adventure, everyone comes together for dinner and evening programs. Meet up with your partner, kids, extended family or friends to share stories and tips about what to enjoy over dinner. Then, head to a variety of evening and night programs. Everyone gets to enjoy Summit day programs tailored to their own interests – and evening programs are a time to bring the family back together or meet up with new friends.

The first evening program welcomes our Summiteers from all over the United States (and a few from other countries) with an introduction to the unique setting of this year’s Family Nature Summit. Evening programs feature local experts and are designed to be enjoyed by all age levels. The last evening program is a popular presentation of skits by all ages up to the Young Adults. A slideshow ends the evening of all the activities from the previous week. Some examples of previous programs include:
