The Name

Deep in the heart of Texas flows the Guadalupe River. Starting in the Texas Hills, its 230-mile journey ends in sun-drenched San Antonio Bay. If you follow its limestone banks, you follow Texas. The magical scent of hot oak and salted brisket, the familiar roar of a high school football game, the pride of Old-Glory flying in a hero’s yard. In Hunt, Texas, near the headwaters of this river, lays the name behind this story—a big rock shaped like a boat—half in and out of the water. 

How It Started

Boat Rock Outdoors was born when an Army Veteran and an NFL standout decided to create a line of outdoor gear that embodies their passion for the outdoors and love of country. At Boat Rock, the details matter. That’s why we design and embroider our premium hats in Austin. In fact, we waited over a year to sell them. Why? To ensure their Texas tough. We knew if our hats could make it through a year hunting and fishing in the Lone Star State, they’ll stand up to anything. So, whether you’re setting the hook on a pasture pond, zeroing your rifle on the range, or having a cold one around a camp fire…We invite you to experience Boat Rock and get Miles from Mainstream. 

Our Motivation

Putting trout in the net, coming full draw on an 8-point buck, launching a retriever after a wood duck—anything that gets us outdoors and back to a simpler time and place. Most importantly, we are passionate about supporting the troops. That’s why a portion of all our sales go to Veteran charities.

Bridget's Basket will host campers K-3 in the garden each morning throughout the 2017 summer!  Bridget will facilitate campers during basic gardening activities, such as planting, harvesting, processing and composting. Campers will learn about plant families, garden weeds, beneficial insects, and soil composition. Campers will also discuss the importance of eating healthy, minimizing our environmental footprints, reducing food milage, water conservation and sustainability.

Bridget's Basket will be presenting at this year's Camp Waldemar - Women's Week in September.

Waldemar Women's Week is an annual event that started with Marsha Elmore and Carolyn Wheat back in 1981. They got together and wanted to have a camp for adults.  During this week the mind, body and spirit are renewed through the many classes and programs offered.

Bridget's Basket will be presenting at this year's Wanted Campference - October 6-9, 2016.

The Wanted Campference is all about nurturing a weary soul, refreshing a thristy spirit and connecting with others in a way that only like “going to camp” can do. The Wanted Campference is set in the beautiful Texas Hill Country on the headwaters of the Frio River at the H.E.Butt Foundation Camp.

Basically, it’s camp for grownups.

The Wanted Campference women’s retreat was born out of a love for going to summer camp and the need to know we are all “wanted by God.”

Bridget's Basket will be presenting this year at Lucky Star Art Camp - November 2 - 5, 2016.
