Picture buffalo and longhorns grazing on open fields, prairie dogs scurrying for their holes, elk bugling in the distance, and sunsets with no ends. The Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge is not only home to many different types of wildlife, but it also offers some of the finest rock climbing in the southern U.S. We plan to rock climb and rappel in some remote locations in the park. We will provide all of the camping and technical gear (tents, sleeping bags, cooking gear, and climbing/rappelling gear). We will also provide meals when we are not travelling. You will need to bring personal gear and money for meals on the road (about $20).
Parents: Your child will have the opportunity to observe and practice good outdoor judgment and decision making skills. Please note the trip is physically and mentally demanding. Please assess your child’s ability before signing them up.
