Chisholm Trail is a unique and unforgettable high adventure for older youth and adults. It’s a backpacking program, but you’ll use boats instead of boots. You get a pontoon boat for a week to travel to the high adventure and watersports bases on our camp’s 16 miles of Lake Bridgeport shoreline.
Plan to spend a lot of time on the water! Chisholm Trail participants spend every afternoon at a watersports base and then all evening and the following morning at a high adventure outpost. Outposts are U.S. Cavalry, Texas Rangers, Viking Ship and Medieval Combat, Cowboy Action Shooting, Covert Ops, Area 51, Climbing, Sporting Clays, and Highland Games. Our staff will do their best to give your crew an outstanding high adventure experience!
