Camp Eagle Walkabout Staff
Located in the heart of the Texas Hill Country, Camp Eagle is the ultimate adventure destination. Large, rollings hills provide an excellent place to mountain bike and hike while the cliffs on the side are a great place to rock climb and rappel. The headwaters of the Nueces River is located just one quarter-mile up river from the entrance to Camp Eagle, which contributes to a beautiful shoreline and waterfront.
Walkabout students stay at the Wilderness Campus at Camp Eagle. They are provided their own meeting space, Mi Casa, which also serves as a classroom and dining hall. The stone Bathhouse is where all of the bathrooms and showers are for the students as well as a washer and dryer. The cabins for Walkabout students have the capability to house ten people, but will only have up to five for the duration of the program. There is electric in the cabins as well as heated floors and a large vent fan.
