There is a place in far West Texas where night skies are dark as coal and rivers carve temple-canyons into ancient limestone. This magical place is Big Bend National Park. This one-week program has you preparing, practicing, and packing for your Big Bend Water Expedition! This trip includes a day in a kayak or a raft on the Rio Grande River with an experienced outfitter, Angel Expeditions.

This primitive camping experience will have you tent camping near the Big Bend Basin, using portable toilets, preparing your meals, and carrying a picnic lunch on the water. This adventure will require campers to keep the sunscreen applied and stay well-hydrated to stay safe and have fun!

Campers will need a couple of pairs of water shoes or old tennis shoes for this adventure along with a wide brim hat, long-sleeved shirt, camelback, or large water bottle, and lots of sunscreen. Campers must be good swimmers, comfortable on a small boat and in water over their head. Campers and adult staff will be required to wear life vests at all times in the water.

When not in the water, you will do some hiking in Big Bend, so campers will need a good pair of walking shoes or hiking boots. Remember this is a High Adventure Trip so campers must be able-bodied, willing to follow all safety directions and have a strong sense of adventure!
