About Us

Who We Are

Aspendale Mountain Retreat Center began its ministry in the spring of 1958 when the El Paso Baptist Association purchased 123 acres located five miles from Cloudcroft, New Mexico. For over 55 years we have provided amazing experiences in the beauty of the Sacramento mountains.

Statement of Faith

As a Christian organization, we want our guests to understand that the primary purpose of Aspendale Baptist Encampment is to share the gospel of Jesus Christ. Our goal is to strengthen the body of Christ through biblical education, worship, fellowship, and recreational activities.

Our policies and guidelines are established to support that purpose.

Our Staff

Our staff works hard all year round to help you have the best experience possible.
