In addition to establishing a program and reputation on the leading edge of camping, we’ve established and maintain beautiful facilities and grounds to match.
Hunt, Texas is the new “Texas Riviera”, and the old “Capitol of Texas Camping”. Located at the junction of the North and South Forks of the Guadalupe River, some 13 Miles upriver of Kerrville, Hunt hosts thousands of young campers each summer. The abundant river, gentle rolling hills and an altitude of 1500 feet above sea level, combine to make the Hill Country climate ideal for a month of outdoor adventure.
Camp La Junta sits nestled alongside a mile of the beautiful, spring-fed Guadalupe River. The inviting waterfront provides numerous opportunities for adventure and activity as does the cool evening climate for which the Hill Country is legendary. The mile-long riverfront includes calm shallows for first time swimmers, our own inner tube and canoe shoots, swimming lanes, rope swing and separate canoe, sailboat and kayak docks.
There are nineteen cabins, all newly modeled or rebuilt since 1990, each with its own hot water showers, toilet facilities and generous bunk space for campers. The centerpiece of La Junta’s scenic grounds is its modern, wood paneled, spacious, Old West Dining Hall. There’s also an all-weather recreation hall complete with air-conditioning for the hot afternoons, an open air theater (for campfires, Sunday services and awards ceremonies), modern stables, 6000 square foot covered activity pavilion, archery range, covered rifle range and acres of open fields for sports and games.
The scenic grounds provide a comfortable, inspiring setting which blends well with the comfortable family environment and exciting activities at Camp La Junta. The numerous giant oaks and cypress provide cooling shade for our spacious stone and wood frame cabins which sit along the base of the La Junta Mountain.
All activities take place in large, comfortable areas, enabling high safety standards. There are modern tennis courts, basketball courts, volleyball, soccer, football and softball fields. The Rifle and Archery Ranges are large and protected from the activity of main camp. The riverfront allows for separate swimming, canoeing, kayaking, sailing, scuba, water games and fishing areas.
La Junta’s meals are served in our new, yet traditionally decorated dining hall. The kitchen is the best around!
