Calling all campers! Your agenda for today: wake up with yoga, ropes course after breakfast, afternoon horseback riding, and a hands-on cooking demo before dancing all night (with a cocktail in hand).

Ready to report back immediately? Kids aren’t the only ones who need to let loose during the summer. Welcome to the great outdoors, Travaasa Austin style. It’s like summer camp for adults. But this is not like any summer camp you’ve ever experienced.

Not only are there endless activities to suit all levels of adventure-seekers, but all the perks of being a grown-up, too. Cool off after a hot hike with a dip in the pool and a refreshing adult beverage waiting for you. Ease your muscles after giving your all in bull riding class with a relaxing massage. And none of that food from the mess hall. Indulge in fresh, delicious, good-for-you meals that feed your appetite and your soul.

A typical day falls nothing short of amazing, but here are a few must-dos during your summer stay.

1. Challenge yourself in the Prickly Pear course.

From scaling walls to zip-line thrills, your adrenaline will be pulsing. This is a course for all abilities, but you will surprise yourself by going beyond what you thought you could do. A truly hands-on adventure for the kid at heart, it’s too bad we don’t have blue ribbons for those who feel most accomplished at the end. But a cold frosty is pretty good reward, too.

2. Learn sophisticated sipping in a wine tasting.

Definitely an activity for grown-ups only, this is better than snack time at sleepaway camp. Discover new flavors, aromas, and notes while trying glasses of wine against the backdrop of the Balcones Canyonlands Preserve. Impress your friends when you return home with your new taste collection. That’s a way better souvenir than a rock collection.

3. Get creative with sketching and drawing.

Sure kiddie camp has arts and crafts, but when you’re surrounded by Texas Hill Country, what you really need is to express yourself. Pressure off, hands-on, our sketch and draw sessions invite you to release your inner artists and capture the physical landscape and spiritual feel that Travaasa has to offer. Take your new artwork home and frame it… maybe not in that macaroni frame from summer camp.

4. Swim. Relax. Spa. 

Our infinity pool is nothing like a campsite lake. Enjoy dramatic views of rolling hills and breathe in all your surroundings. If you ever tire of being poolside, indulge in one of our many spa treatments. From facials to body treatments, there is something for everyone and every type of relaxation. Because a mud mask is not the same as muddy lake water.

So what are you waiting for? Grab your swimsuit and your sneakers and jump right in for a vacation packed full — of activities, relaxation, and satisfaction.
