Hey, Camp People!
Working with more than 270 summer camps, we take our opportunities to sing the praises of camps all across the nation. Here on the Everything Summer Camp Blog, I make an effort to frequently highlight summer camps who we feel deserve a special mention. Today I’m swinging the Summer Camp Spotlight southward to the Lone Star State of Texas.
For more than 90 years, girls have escaped to the heart of the Texas Hill Country where they find the rustic campgrounds of Kickapoo Kamp. Nine miles southwest of Kerrville, Kickapoo sits 2,000 feet above sea level for a clear view of the surrounding area. The crystal clear Turtle Creek runs through the campgrounds—a spring-fed stream that flows into the Guadalupe River.
Enjoy fun activities like Aerobic Dance, Archery, Arts & Crafts, Beauty Spa, Campcraft, Canoeing, Cheerleading, Dance, Drama, Flags, Fitness, Gymnastics, Nature Exploration, Ping Pong, Riflery, Tennis, Western Riding, and more. Kickapoo also offers an awesome water sports program in their spring-fed Turtle Creek where kids can go Swimming, Water Skiing, go down the Water Slide, and more.
When you arrive at Kickapoo, you’ll see the “Lodge” front-and-center of the property as well as the camp Dining Hall. Along the layout, you’ll find the Activity Building that they utilize for activities like Arts & Crafts, Dance, Ping-Pong, and more. They boast Archery and Riflery ranges. They have an arena and barn for horse-riding. There are secluded spots for overnight camping cookouts and more on top of that.
Kickapoo Kamp has twelve cabins and each has its own bathroom facility. The cabins are built to accommodate 8 – 12 girls as well as a pair of cabin leaders. Cabins are filled with girls of nearest ages in order to give them the most comfortable living quarters where your camper is sure to develop a sense of camaraderie and connectedness.
Here, Nature has been abundant with wonderful clean air, sun showers, and beaming moonlight. Get the opportunity to bond with nature, friends, and yourself at Kickapoo Kamp. As always, thanks for reading!
