Private Group Events, Backpacking, and Gear Rentals

The North Texas OPC is dedicated to bringing the outdoors within everyone's reach, not only to our members, but to the institutions of DFW as well. We work very closely with several scout organizations to provide group events, lock-ins, and AMGA certified Merit Badges. We also hold small, medium, or large events for corporate groups like Cook Medical, Match.com, and Dallas Yoga Magazine. To top it all off, we also rent gear like backpacks and tents for anyone to use, anytime.


Are you with a scout troop?

We have a wide range of services to keep your troop outdoors or learning the finer points in our one-of-a-kind facility. Merit Badges can be completed at any of these locations. If you have a certified instructor who already has the knowledge to manage a rock climbing site, we also have a rental package that includes ropes, harnesses, hardware, anchors, etc.


Looking to book a group event?

First you need to choose a location and a time frame. We can run anything from birthday parties to large team building events or over night lock - ins. All events require a 7 day notice and a $50 non-refundable deposit to reserve your time slot.
