Camp La Junta sits nestled between a mile of the crystal clear, cypress shaded Guadalupe River and the beautiful hills of the Texas Hill Country, on nearly 200 acres. The inviting waterfront provides numerous opportunities for adventure and activity as does the cool evening climate for which the Hill Country is legendary.
A scenic drive northwest of San Antonio along I-10, or west of Austin via Fredericksburg and Kerrville, takes you in Hunt, Texas. Located at the junction of the North and South Forks of the Guadalupe River, 13 Miles upriver of Kerrville, Hunt hosts thousands of young campers each summer. The abundant river, shady cypress and oak trees, and gentle rolling hills combine to make the Hill Country ideal for a month of outdoor adventure.
If using a GPS to find Camp La Junta, input “1661 Highway 39, Hunt, Texas.”
The grounds provide an inspiring setting for a welcoming family environment and exciting activities at Camp La Junta. The mile-long riverfront includes calm shallows for first time swimmers, our own inner tube and canoe shoots, swimming lanes, rope swing, water slide and separate canoe, sailing and kayak docks. The giant oak and cypress trees provide cooling shade for our stone and wood frame cabins which sit along the base of the La Junta mountain.
Our cabins are spacious and comfortable and contain full bathroom facilities within. Typical cabins house eight to fourteen boys plus their college-aged counselors, counselor aids and often a Counselor in Training.
The centerpiece of La Junta’s scenic grounds is its large, Old West-themed Dining Hall, where delicious meals are served “family style.” Cereal, salad and sandwich bar options also accommodate a variety of palates.
Our campus is complete with a well-equipped Infirmary of nursing staff, an air-conditioned “movie hall” for the hot afternoons and evening relaxation, an open-air theater (for campfires, Sunday services and awards ceremonies), horse stables, a 6000-square foot covered activity pavilion, archery range, covered rifle range and acres of open fields for sports and games.
