GETTING THERE…AND BACK AGAIN
Camp Eagle is in Rocksprings (see map). We typically make a pit stop at the McDonald’s in Fredericksburg on our way out, and in the past we’ve stopped at Potbelly’s (off of MoPac Expressway) in South Austin on our way back.
Not everybody and all their stuff can fit in the van we rent. So we need volunteers to drive people and/or stuff. Interested in volunteering for caravan duty? Let us know!

Consider that we’re not planning on being gone for a year or a month — or even a full week! Basically, you’re looking at packing:
- clothes to last you three days and three nights (Friday noon through Monday afternoon)
- protection from rain and cool sunshiney and hot weather!
- swim gear — suits, water shoes, goggles, sunscreen, towel
- toiletries. soap, shampoo, toothbrush/paste, deodorant, etc.
- bedding — they supply the mattress, you supply the rest!
- a bible, a pen, and a notebook
That’s a minimum list. Camp Eagle has done a great job making a very extensive list to help campers figure out what to put in their backpack and what to leave home. Check out these links:
WHAT’S IT LOOK LIKE?
Settled along the Nueces River, Camp Eagle enjoys cool breezes several times of day, and has lots of gorgeous views of the surrounding hills and diverse wildlife. The facilities are well kempt and conveniently laid out.
HEALTH & SAFETY
The Wuhan-Corona-Covid19 situation being what it is, Camp Eagle has been proactive in complying with the latest state recommendations. To ensure everyone has a safe, maximally healthy time, we’ve got some new rules to abide by and they’ve adjusted operations, too.
ABOUT CAMP EAGLE
Located in west of the Texas Hill Country, Camp Eagle has been a spiritual oasis for our youth since 2014. Every summer, we gather there with hundreds of other youth for a week of fellowship, worship, and discipleship. The growth and change God effects in us while we are there lasts a lifetime.
The cost to reserve a camper’s bed is $255. Additionally, the church rents a van to ferry most of the youth back and forth, which costs somewhere north of a grand. Furthermore, we typically spend a couple hundred bucks on supplies, snacks, etc. All told we figure we’ll spend close to six thousand dollars to send 20+ folks to camp this July.
You are welcome to contribute any amount toward covering these costs. We’ve set up a special fund called “Camp” for this purpose. Any monies left over from this year will go towards next year’s trip.
