Give a young person the opportunity to accomplish great things; in an environment that promotes leadership and courage and great things will happen. We are proud to offer APEX, our new ‘expedition style’ camp for our oldest of campers. With Kidventure guides and counselors, a select group of 12 campers will kayak twenty miles of the pristine Pecos River in West Texas. Along the way they will discover new possibilities, rely on one another, and move one adventure closer to becoming great.
The Pecos River will challenge and unify our Apex campers by instilling a sense of accomplishment and shared experience that is unique only to conquering this type of a trip.
During the 20 mile trip the participants will spend five days paddling and camping on the beautiful Pecos River in the Texas’ Chihuahuan Desert. They will run class I-III rapids and meander between building-sized boulders as they travel through the wilderness oasis. Experience the grand cathedral-like walls of the river canyon and cool clean water. Groups begin their journey at Camp Eagle’s wilderness base camp and we drive the group out to the river and back for the lower 20 mile portion of the river.
