If you're looking for a real outdoor and underground adventure and are not afraid of getting dirty, then join us for a caving and rappelling experience of a lifetime at Colorado Bend State Park. Take in the beautiful scenery of the park before rappelling from a Hill Country canyon cliff, down into an underground oasis of classic karst formations at Gorman Creek Crevice. Colorado Bend State Park is well-known for the 60-foot tall Gorman Falls waterfall and consists of over 5000 acres, 480 cave formations, and over 35 miles of trail. It is home to a number of wildlife and migratory bird species, as well as the federally endangered Golden Cheek Warbler and Black Capped Vireo. Note: This tour is not suggested for those with an extreme fear of heights or tight spaces. REI will provide all gear needed.

Location:Colorado Bend State Park, Bend

Special Instructions: Must be 14 or older to attend. 

This is NOT A DROP OFF EVENT. Adults are required to remain with their Girl Scouts. As required by Volunteer Essentials and Safety Activity Checkpoints, adults attending this event are responsible for their troop or individual Girl Scout’s behavior. During non-drop off Girl Scout events, adults attending the event are responsible for the safety and well-being of the girls that are in their care during the event. Do not leave your Girl Scouts in the care of other adults at the event that are not part of your group or directly related to the child. Parents or caregivers of individual Girl Scouts that are attending non-drop off events are strongly encouraged to have an eligible, unexpired Criminal Background Check (CBC) on file with Girl Scouts of Central Texas. The easiest way to accomplish this is to add the "Troop Friends and Family" role to their membership.

Additional COVID information and mask guidelines can be found on the COVID-19 Updates page.
