Texas Outdoor Family
Make your own adventure! Learn how to camp with Texas Outdoor Family. We host workshops at state parks all over Texas.
Set up a tent, cook outdoors, build a campfire, and play outside. We provide all the equipment, too.
Visit the Calendar of Events to find camping workshops near you.
No Experience Necessary: Let us show you how!
We provide what you need for a fun camping experience in a Texas State Park. Starting at $65 for a one-night workshop, each family or group of up to six people gets a campsite with nearby restrooms and the use of equipment including: tent, cots for two adults, foam sleeping pads for children, lantern, camp stove, cooking pots/pans and utensils, and a coffee press. You will bring: bedding, personal items and food. We even provide camping recipes.
Make Your Own Adventure: We provide the tools!
Each workshop offers different activities. Your family could geocache (high-tech treasure hunt), kayak, fish, swim, rock climb, cook in a Dutch oven, go to a nature program, mountain bike, stargaze and more.
Smell dinner roasting over the fire while a great-horned owl calls in the distance and your family laughs at silly campfire stories. Imagine yourself lying in a tent looking up at the stars after a day of playing outside. Our ancestors have camped for thousands of years. You can too! Choose a workshop and make your own adventure!
