Chisholm Trail can help crews unable to attend their Philmont trek due to the fires to have a High Adventure experience this Summer. Flexible schedule, no late fees. Located 60 miles west of DFW.

Chisholm Trail is a unique and unforgettable high adventure.  You get a pontoon boat for a week, do six high adventure outposts, and cool off with watersports all afternoon every day!  Spend a week navigating our camp’s 15 miles of Lake Bridgeport shoreline as you drive your pontoon boat to our high adventure outposts, fight in living history battles, tube, wakeboard, windsurf, Blob, and more!  Your crew is certain to have an outstanding high adventure experience.  Troops and Crews from 44 states, England, Scotland, and Mexico have come to Chisholm Trail.
