Participants in LYTE run San Antonio should have no shortage of motivation. At the start line, a DJ fills the air with galvanizing beats, a trend that continues throughout the course, as various checkpoints boast DJs thumping tunes in line with a different theme. Each runner dons glowing schwag, so the runners form an effervescent stream as they move through the darkened course. The race concludes with a "NYTE LYTE" after-party, during which runners unwind in a party scored by electronic dance music and non-toxic dilute paints.
Nestled amid limestone cliffs and hiking trails, Camp Eagle hosts life-changing outings that fuse outdoor activities with Christian messages that help parents navigate tough issues. The camp hosts a wide range of activities on its 1,400 acres, from small-group Eagle Quest backpacking trips to group retreats on the Nueces River and extreme-adventure events. Campers can take quiet hikes through the woods, sip fresh brews in the lodge-style coffee shop, try their hand at mountain boarding, or fly off The Blob—an enormous inflatable pillow that catapults jumpers into the river. Events hosted on the grounds feature leaders and sessions who inspire campers to lead Christlike lives, and the camp itself is a nondenominational, nonprofit organization. After days spent bonding over air hockey in the game room or re-enacting The Birds while shooting clay pigeons, visitors return to hotel or lodge-style accommodations.
