Who is this for?

This experience is for anyone who is ready to up their camping and hiking game a bit. It's for those who want to get away from technology to give their brains a much needed break.  It is for those who are continually on a personal path of self transformation. Maybe you have camped once or twice near your home town. Maybe you've gone on a couple hikes on your vacation. Maybe you've always wanted to go to Big Bend but it seemed like too much of a hassle to plan, organize and execute the logistics. This retreat will take care of everything for you. Just show up ready for an adventure with some rad people. 

Each day we will hike, however, the hikes aren't super strenuous and were chosen for maximum views and accessibility from the campground. If you do not wish to hike one day, you are more than welcome to hang at the campsite on our comfortable rugs and pillows to read a book. 

Whether you are an experienced hiker or never camped in your life. you are about to embark on a one-of-a-kind adventure.
