Summer Raider Service Break

All Raider Service Breaks are subsidized for TTU students. Which means your total trip fee is already reduced by 40%!

Caprock Canyon State Park

The TTU Summer semesters have ended and what better way to kick off your fall semester than by Serving, Learning, & Traveling with Raider Service Breaks!

Wind and water over the eons shaped the rugged beauty of Caprock Canyons State Park in the Panhandle of Texas. Today, bison roam the plains, bats roost in Clarity Tunnel, and you can explore 90 miles of trails.

Volunteers are vital in helping take care of our state parks and TTU Raider Service Breaks is excited to offer students, faculty, and staff an opportunity to Serve, Learn, and Travel at Caprock Canyon.

Tasks vary and can always change depending on the needs of the organization. Trail & park maintenance and beautification projects (painting, building, signage etc.) are just a couple of tasks that might be asked of you.

You will also have a private tour of the park, its railways, and the Clarity Tunnel bat caves.

Service Breaks participants must be willing to learn, serve, step out of their comfort zones, be flexible, and have fun!
