Anyone can camp, no equipment needed!
All homeschoolers are invited!

Some ideas to consider if you are not a “camper”, but want to come have some family fun!
- Free activities and some paid ones that you cannot do anywhere else!
- You bring your own food.
- There are lodging options for non camping types!
- There are bathrooms and showers!

Camp Eagle near Rocksprings, TX
To get to Camp Eagle, ya’ll will be heading about 2 hours west of the Alamo city on asphalt, and about half an hour south on a dirt road. The address is 6424 Hackberry Rd., Rocksprings, TX 78880.
Competitor magazine declared Camp Eagle “Texas’ best adventure destination.” It’s no surprise with 1400 acres of rugged Hill Country along with natural caves, a quarter mile of 150′ limestone cliffs, and 1.5 miles of the crystal clear Nueces River. That’s more natural resources jammed into one space than most camps across the nation can claim. It is known for their mountain biking trails!
Lodging options includes price for 2 nights:
- BYOTent- $20 per tent (Bathhouse is nearby)
- Yurt (wood lattice and canvas top, (A/C and heat)-$20 per person, all ages. Bathhouse is outside in another Yurt. This sleeps 14 in bunks, but if we do not have 12 paying adults ($120 x 2 nights), we cannot use a yurt. We can do males and females in two separate dorms, or you can share it with others you know (to equal 12).
- RV/Trailer $70, DRY CAMPING- The area to park in with no hookups is on the other side of the camp from our group. The Zip Field next to the Zip 850.
If you are like me and just watch, you do not have to pay for these two activities. Prices are per activity.
$10/8 yr olds and up
$5/3-7 yr olds
FREE/0-2 yr olds and non participants
Headwaters Barn – 2-3 hours
Designed for young children to early middle school, it’s a paradise for play that provides thrills in a more manageable setting. Complete with a barn swing, a rock wall, crate stacking, and a high catwalk kids can safely climb up and get lowered back down on a cable or on a spiral tube slide!
Zipline 850 – 2-3 hours
Here’s your opportunity to soar down our flagship dual 850-foot zip lines at up to 30 mph! Our most accessible zip line, it’s a great activity for all ages. This activity is a solid night option as well.
Ore Chute Slide/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.”
Kayaking (Must wear life vest provided, all those under 18 must be supervised by an adult.)
Sports Courts (Volleyball/Basketball/Tetherball/Horseshoes)
Mountain biking (Trails are everywhere! Maps provided. Helmets are a MUST!)
Miscellaneous bits of info:
· Wifi is available in the office foyer and the coffee house. If you climb a mountain, you may be able to get a signal there? Please be aware, the cell phone signal is VERY sketchy and not reliable. If you need to get in contact with those on site, you may want to bring walkie talkies.
· Mountain bikes welcome! Helmets are REQUIRED and MUST be worn at all times.
· No ground fires allowed. You may bring a portable grill.
· There is not a minimum age for the Zip line, they just need to be able to fit into our smallest harness. From my experience, a 4 or 5 yr old may fit in the harness.
· Make sure you bring everything you need, the closest grocery store or any store is 1 ½ hours away. Ice is available at the Camp Store.
Do not miss this family fun weekend!
