Explore Austin provides monthly weekend outdoor days where the explorers have opportunities to learn new outdoor, leadership, and life skills. Each summer the explorers have the opportunity to travel to the mountains for a multi day backpacking trip! There they learn mountaineering, camping, leadership, and many life skills! This sounds like summer camp, doesn't it! Not all central Texas families have the means to send their kids to summer camp, and Explore Austin has given them new opportunity. We hope Trail Roots can one day offer trail running classes to the Austin explorers!
