My two boys had a lot of fun for the 1 week rock-climbing, swimming, caving camp. They went to Barton creek, Rimers ranch and Enchanted rock.

Right now we meet in the mornings and try to start at 8:15 because of the Texas heat. Once it starts to cool down we can offer an 8:15 and a 1:15pm start time options.
