Where do you find the Singing River? It lives in the hearts of many in Questa NM, Taos Pueblo, and beyond. It is a sanctuary of joy and wonder. Founded in the early nineties by Maggie and Aron Rael and friends, Singing River Field Center is a day camp located on the pristine sun-dappled banks of the Rio Cabresto nestled in the Latir mountain wilderness. Facilities include day lodge, a farm and greenhouse, nature trails, swimming and fishing holes, and a large meadow for games. Singing River is a place for kids to be themselves in nature.
