Welcome to Rooted Method's rewild camping retreat! We've designed every detail of this trip so you can reap the benefits of being immersed in a wild space without the hassle of the planning or preparing any multi-day wilderness experience usually requires. No prior outdoor experience is necessary.*
I’ve always been obsessed with Big Bend because it feels like teleporting into a completely different era. One without smartphones or emails, where traffic isn't even a concept and wild hearts rule the land. Here we can rewild ourselves properly, detoxing from technology while also taking a break from our adult responsibilities.
You'll be encouraged to play like a child throughout this trip. You can interpret that to look and feel however you wish. Remember, life gives you plenty of opportunities to be an adult. Why not try something different?
This retreat will also elevate your relationship to the earth, our human community, and yourself. The days are structured so you can participate in as much or as little as your heart desires. It's totally cool if you just want to read your book in your tent during the afternoon.
***This is not a backpacking trip. We set up our tents at a very large group campsite and participate in the experiences by walking or driving to other locations in the park. ***
We can provide tents, sleeping bags and pads if you need them or you can bring your own. You have the option to carpool with another participants or two, or you can reach the park on your own. (You will find those options listed in the intake form once a payment is received. )
My assistant and I will be at the park a day before our adventure starts setting everything up and making sure all the magical details are ready for you! Our meeting point on the first day will be in the Chisos Basin in Big Bend National Park. Don't worry, you'll receive the exact campsite location and all its details.
See y'all in the wild!
* Absolutely zero previous experience camping is necessary. We can be as hands on or off in helping you navigate the basics of camping! We are here to help!
Getting to the Desert Dreams Retreat in Big Bend : My assistant and I arrive the day prior to set everything up for our group. You can drive yourself, carpool with a friend or family member, or caravanning with other participants coming from the same city. If you are coming from out of state, the best way to arrive is by flying into El Paso, renting a car and driving for two hours to our campsite. Please feel free to email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions regarding getting there.
