Hey, Camp Fans!
When you work with more than 270 summer camps across the nation, it means you’ve got a lot of praises to sing! We wouldn’t have it any other way here at Everything Summer Camp. It’s our pleasure to spread the word about some fantastic places you can go in order to get a proper summer camp experience. And today, we’re swinging our spotlight over to Fort Davis, Texas where we have Prude Ranch Summer Camp!
Measuring in at 2,500 acres, this ranch is nestled in the center of the Davis Mountains. Get a true ‘Southwest’ experience at Prude Ranch where campers encounter wide open spaces, beautiful mountains, clean air, and a look at what real life is like on a ranch. Kids have loved it ever since it first began in 1967.
Boys and girls at Prude Ranch enjoy a variety of awesome summer camp activities such as Animal Life, Archery, Arts & Crafts, Basketball, Beauty Parlor, Card Games, Cheerleading, Cooking, Dodgeball, Drawing, Football, Hiking, Riflery, Roping, Swimming, Tennis, and much more. And, since Prude Ranch is indeed a working ranch, a number of their most popular activities involve horses.
In fact, Prude Ranch is special in that each camper is assigned a horse for the duration of the camp stay and responsible for the horse’s care. When pairing up campers with horses, a lot of thought is put into the process in which age and expertise (among a number of other factors) are taken into consideration.
Our groups of summer campers, be they Comanche and Apache girls or 3Bar and Triangle Bar Ranch boys, are situated in the comfortable bunkhouses. These cabins sleep 8-20 campers/cabin leaders at a time and provide their residents with multiple shower and bathroom facilities. If you think it might be a good fit for you, check out Prude Ranch Camp for your own upcoming camp experience and, as always, thanks for reading!
