Wilderness Weeks

Whether it’s a low-key week, an extreme adventure, or something in the middle, make your Camp Eagle experience one filled with lasting memories.

Discipleship Course

This trip is for those seeking true adventure in remote locations. You will spend 6 days paddling down one of the most pristine rivers in the Southwest. Our guides will teach the hard skills of paddling and making the river banks feel like home all the while teaching students how to study God’s word in a way that effects change in their lives. A major focus of this trip will be how to apply the Bible to our way of life.

South Pecos River Paddle & Climb Trip

You may have heard of the pristine Pecos River in reference to its great fishing and its beautiful remote canyons and springs. Camp Eagle has offered paddling trips down the lower 60 miles of this river since 2010. Now we are excited about the opportunity to guide trips for climbers on a 15 mile section already cherished by river travelers for its large rapids, towering boulders, and deep emerald pools. We have hit the jackpot for a trip jam-packed with some of the best section of river in Texas matched with some of the best climbing the state has to offer!

South Pecos River Expedition

This is easily the staff favorite of all the courses we offer. Spend five days paddling and camping on the beautiful Pecos River in Texas’ Chihuahuan Desert. For remote paddling in duckies we go to the South Pecos River down in Texas. This river is one of the most pristine in the country. This trip can be 20, 40, or the full 60 miles. It won’t be easy but there will certainly be more than enough reward. This trip is full of contrast: cool storms followed by hot sun, gentle currents lead to swift rapids, waking from a nap to cliff jump into the water and the final headwind leads to victory at the takeout!

Big Bend Expedition

Big Bend is one of the largest National Parks and one of the least visited; this course explores the whole park. A linear progression will take you from backpacking in the Chisos Mountains, to biking through the desert, and finally paddling down the Rio Grande with a soak in the hot springs. This will be an unforgettable trip no matter your experience level. Learn about traveling in desert environments, backpacking skills, mountain biking, and river travel all in one trip. You are almost guaranteed the most beautiful sunsets and mornings you have ever seen.

Custom Adventures

From easy going treks to heart pounding extreme expeditions, we can create a customized wilderness adventure that’s perfect for your group.

Custom Base Camp & Back Country Combo

A four day wilderness trip at Camp Eagle is the perfect amount of time out on trail for groups who are new to backpacking and want to experience an equal amount of fun and challenge! Your first and last nights will be spent sleeping indoors at our Wilderness Base Camp giving you access to civilization and gently introduces you into the wild. When we head out into our back country, there are several amazing campsites and activity options that can cater to any groups needs. In the summer we keep our groups on their toes with intentional experiences, paired with biblical truth, while always throwing in relaxing cool down times like swimming in our river, or even a secret visit by our fire truck for a surprise trail shower!

Custom Base Camp Adventure

Base Camp trips are great for weekends or up to 4-night stays. Groups experience all the awesome Wilderness activities but without all the camping. With most meals at Mi Casa, bathrooms, showers, and a bed to sleep in, this is a great option for groups who want a taste of the Wilderness experience. It is also a great way to have an abbreviated summer camp or retreat in a more secluded environment. Trips are customized for each group and all the Wilderness activities are available.
