Walkabout Experience

9 months of discipleship. A lifetime of change.

This isn’t just a way to blow off a year after graduation. It’s a rock-solid 9 month program designed to help 18-24 year old high school or college graduates gain a new perspective on themselves and a unique outlook on their Christian lives by stepping out of their comfort zones by experiencing an extended stay in the wilderness. The result is a sharper focus on their futures and a greater vision for the purpose God has in store for their lives.

The program runs its course from August through May during which time participants learn first hand what it means to be a true disciple of Christ and how to follow Him more closely through living a life in His Word, without compromise, and without the materialistic trappings of this world.

We provide all three throughout the length of our course to give participants a solid foundation for pursuing their career goals. In addition to these benefits, our semesters also help students discover what opportunities are out there, help them define their career goals, and give them the direction and inspiration to achieve them.

Rock Climbing

If you're a thrill seeker who'd like to feel a little "boulder", we accommodate all skill levels in many different climbing styles. For those about to rock, we salute you!

Wilderness Hiking

There's adventure in each breath and every step. Let your wanderlust take over and experience spectacular vistas across miles of pristine mountain trails.

Underground Maze

Praesent blandit laoreet nibh. Praesent porttitor, nulla vitae posuere iaculis, arcu nisl dignissim dolor, a pretium mi sem ut ipsum. Pellentesque posuere. Praesent ac massa at ligula laoreet iaculis. Class aptent taciti sociosqu ad litora torquent per conubia nostra, per inceptos hymenaeos.

Redneck Paintball

Think paintball with slingshots. Don't let the name fool you, your neck is well protected. Your pride, however, is not. Think fast! They come at you from all sides.

Ore Chute Slide

Praesent blandit laoreet nibh. Praesent porttitor, nulla vitae posuere iaculis, arcu nisl dignissim dolor, a pretium mi sem ut ipsum. Pellentesque posuere. Praesent ac massa at ligula laoreet iaculis. Class aptent taciti sociosqu ad litora torquent per conubia nostra, per inceptos hymenaeos.

Hey camper, camper. Hey camper, camper. Swing! Harness up and take a big leap of faith. Only at Glorieta can kids have this much fun in church.

Hiking

Thousands of acres and miles of trails through God's beautiful creation. Explore the trails and experience vistas that will take your breath away.

Ga-Ga Ball

Ga-ga wha? Trust us, it's not for babies. Part dodge ball, part tag and part king of the hill, it takes action to another level. Stay with it. Rule the octagon!

Outdoor Dodgeball

There's nothing like the unmistakable tread of a new red dodgeball. It provides good grip. And a recognizable pattern on the side of your face. Respect the ball!

Kayaking

Suspendisse non nisl sit amet velit hendrerit rutrum. Donec mi odio, faucibus at, scelerisque quis, convallis in, nisi. Suspendisse enim turpis, dictum sed, iaculis a, condimentum nec, nisi. Integer ante arcu, accumsan a, consectetuer eget, posuere ut, mauris. Fusce a quam.

Millhouse Obstacle Course

There's no easing into this, so jump right in! From there, you're climbing through our bouncy crash course. You'll love ducking, diving, and dodging to the end.

Sand Volleyball

Bring it on. Serve it up. Spike, slam, wham, attack - Let your competitive spirit take over. You'll need it. Dig, set, spin, spike! Leave the campfire for day's end.

Rappelling

Your heart pounds as you overcome your nerves and step off the cliff. What were you thinking? Total focus. Step by step. Now you're down, confident. Again!

Fishing

They say a bad day of fishing is better than a good day at school. Catch a trout from a clear mountain stream and fried it up on the bank and you'll know what it means.

Camp Store

Make sure everyone knows you were at Camp Eagle and reward yourself with a Camp Eagle souvenir after a day of accomplishments! There’s a plethora of shirts, hats, water bottles, and other cool souvenirs to choose from. The camp store needs to be scheduled in advance of your retreat so we can make sure it’s available and staffed for you.

Coffee Shop

Our coffee shop is a great place to unwind, play games, and build community. Frappes, specialty sodas, ice cream, candy, and other snacks make up the many offerings on our menu. Be sure to schedule the Coffee shop in advance of your retreat so we can make sure it’s available and staffed for you!

Eagle Cave

Our guides can lead your group to our actual limestone cave, Eagle Cave, to explore a little-known world down below. If you’re brave enough, squeeze through the cracks to see the elusive second room in the cave.

Hammock Hang Time

There are plenty of places around camp to relax. Stake a claim at one of the many hammocks that are open for grabs. Breath in the fresh air. Now exhale.

Zip 3K

Our dual line tour features FIVE sections of fast-moving zip lines stretched high above the alpine floor. Each section give you a different experience. Bring a friend!

Zip 850

This is like a normal zip line, only a little more loosy-goosey, with special tethers that let you drift to the ground like a parachuter coming in for a landing.

Treehouse Challenge Course

Quietly nestled in the pines is a diabolical treehouse designed to test both your mental and physical abilities. Only the best problem solvers will prevail!

Waterfront

Swim in our spring-fed Nueces river and experience the blob, our waterslides, zip line, and much more. A fun reprieve on a hot afternoon! Lifeguards are required for all waterfront activities.

Waterfront Decks

Water you waiting for? Take a dip and a drop from any one of our numerous decks rigged with ropes, slides, blobs and more. Look out below, and bombs away!

Waterslides

In hac habitasse platea dictumst. Nam adipiscing. Etiam feugiat lorem non metus. Cras dapibus. Etiam sollicitudin, ipsum eu pulvinar rutrum, tellus ipsum laoreet sapien, quis venenatis ante odio sit amet eros.
