Rock Climbing!!!!
















Come join us for the most thrilling and glorious trip of the year — ENCHANTED ROCK!!!!

YES, the ENCHANTED ROCK!!  This is the most visited State Park in all of Texas year after year.  It’s also considered the most beautiful of all the state parks.  So what are we doing?  Well, what else but CLIMBING!  Yes, we have hired professional guides to take us repelling off cliffs and climbing the granite face of Enchanted Rock.  Here are some of the planned activities:


  • Climbing Merit Badge – Rappelling and climbing with professional instructor
  • Hiking Merit Badge – If you don’t like climbing there will be a group hiking around the park
  • Astronomy Merit Badge
  • Camping Merit Badge – part of the climbing meets some of the requirements that are hard to get
  • Bird Study Merit Badge
  • Backpack Merit Badge – we will backpack 1 mile in to our campsite


We will be camping over the 3 day MLK weekend which means a few different things.  First we leave Saturday morning so no rush on Friday.  Second, we come home on Monday since no school.  Here are details:
