Camp La Junta for Boys exists to provide a camping environment which is moral, safe, entertaining and educational. We strive to provide every boy abundant personal attention to assure a unique personal experience which ensures his personal growth and leaves him knowing he’s a successful, important individual.
The Camp La Junta Experience is a time tested, successful formula which blends years of old fashioned activities with the most current fun and games – modern facilities with a rustic atmosphere – eighty five year old traditions with todays most current programs – new era camper needs and desires with experienced plans for building self confidence. The Camp La Junta Experience is a formula for success.
Camp La Junta’s 200 acres lie nestled between a mile of crystal clear, cypress shaded, Guadalupe riverfront and the scenic rolling hills for which the Texas Hill Country is famous. The beautiful campgrounds are thoughtfully laid out, providing a sense of spaciousness yet convenience. Abundant cypress and oak trees provide a canopy of cooling shade on most of the grounds. Cabins are spacious, newly remodeled and comfortable, and each has full bathroom facilities with plenty of hot water. Typical cabins house twelve boys, two college-aged counselors and very often a Counselor Aide and Counselor-in-Training.
The well-rounded program at La Junta provides each boy aged 7 – 14 with ample opportunity to pursue his own interests while maintaining a pace suitable for his needs. Held in the proper perspective, competition is an important part of this program. In addition to the challenges of sportsmanship and individual contribution to a team effort, we stress the importance of challenging a young boy to meet his own personal dreams and aspirations.
Enrollment each term is limited and classes and cabin groups are kept small to ensure the quality of personal attention and family atmosphere necessary for the instruction and guidance for which La Junta is renowned. All activities are structured to enhance the development of close relationships between campers and members of La Junta’s highly qualified staff thereby increasing the opportunities for personal success.
The Camp La Junta Experience provides a small camping program, perfect for the individual attention necessary for building life long self-confidence.
