Ideal for: Ministers and Their Families | Ages: All Ages | Dates: Apr 1-3, 2019
To enjoy nature is to enjoy God, for they are the same.
Escape into Outdoor Adventure
This 3-day outdoor adventure getaway is the perfect opportunity for ministers and their families to take some time away from home and the everyday stresses that surround leading a congregation, for spiritual refreshment, decompression and a chance to get deeper with God.
Real One-On-One Time With God and Family
Pastoring can be stressful. No matter if you’re an assistant pastor of a church of 40 or a lead pastor of a church of 4,000, shepherding the people of God can take a toll on your mind and your body. Aren’t you always available to listen and to offer spiritual advice for those in need? Pastors need vacation and counseling too, and oftentimes the opportunity for pastors to recharge is not available or affordable. Whatever situation you find yourself in as a leader, finding time for intimacy with God and your marriage are necessities. Our adventure retreats are specially designed for pastors and their families to take some time away from home, because paying attention to your personal spiritual wellbeing is crucial for a healthy relationship with God.
Bring 3 For Free
We’re excited to offer another “3 For Free” Minister’s Escape! Bring any three from your ministry for free. Use it as a time to get away, to plan with teammates, to enjoy our activities, to meet others in various ministries, to escape into the mountains for some adventure or solitude. This time is YOUR time, and we are here to serve you however we can.
Your retreat is totally flexible so that you can get the most relaxation out of your trip. Feel free to participate in as much or as little of what we have planned as you like. The important thing is that you relax, unwind and spend time with God – whether alone or in a group. We just want you to be spiritually and physically refreshed.

Treehouse Challenge Course
Our flagship feature is a 5 level treehouse. Take a drop down one of four super slides or have gallons of fun in any of our waterfront activities.
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!
There's adventure in each breath and every step. Let your wanderlust take over and experience spectacular vistas across miles of pristine mountain trails.
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.
Fuzzy wristbands, Keds, and sliding sideways on a Big Wheel made for some serious street cred back in the day. Well, we've amped it up.
It's like a cross between basketball, soccer, hockey, polo and demolition derby on our awesome drift trikes. Hard to explain. Amazing to play. Try it.
Hop on and go for a spin that will leave you breathless in more ways than one. When you experience a mountainside ride, you'll know what we mean.
Take a chain-grinding, quad-shredding lap or two around our wicked dirt tracks, bust out a few of those moves you practiced, and soar to glory.

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.
We are hunters, and adventure is our game. We are unstoppable, and you are our prey. Take aim and bring 'em down. Before they get you!
Thousands of acres and miles of trails through God's beautiful creation. Explore the trails and experience vistas that will take your breath away.
Guaranteed to break the ice. This is camp-olympics! From scavenger hunts to more inventive contests, you're sure to make a few new friends along the way.
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!
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!
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.
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!
There's nothing better than a game of hoops. Pick up moves with other campers from around the country, or take 'em to school like you do at home.
To heck with the clubs; grab a disk and join the fun. It's all in your swing... or is it the fling? This is the perfect place to test your skills at a high level.
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.
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!
You've never stacked anything like this. Ever. It takes nerve, balance and a lot of patience to build a tower this high. Stand on top without tumbling for the win.
Brand new to rock climbing? These colorful blocks are just right for learning the basics and getting the 'hang' of climbing without getting too far off the ground.
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.
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!
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!
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.
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!
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.
