What would you give to help change the world?

Thousands of women today credit their successes in life to the values and skills learned through their participation in Girl Scouts. Two-thirds of the women who are today's leaders in government, business, education, medicine, science, and in their communities were once Girl Scouts.  

Help to Change the World!

The Girl Scout program has a significant impact on the lives of young girls and their communities here in southwest Texas.  Your gift can make a big difference:

Thanks for your Support!

We can never say it enough... THANKS for contributing to building girls of courage, confidence and character who help to make the world a better place.      

 

An investment in Girl Scouts is broader than a cause or a cure.
It's a commitment to a generation.

    

What would you give to help change the world?
Help us start in Southwest Texas, one girl at a time.

Together, we can get her there.

Camp La Jita

Camp La Jita -- an Indian word meaning precious possession -- was aptly chosen as the name for our Girl Scout camp on the beautiful Sabinal River near Utopia, Texas. In 1946, the John F.

Camp La Jita rests on 236 acres of Texas Hill Country land along the Sabinal River, one hour and twenty minutes west of San Antonio. This council-owned camp is used for resident camping during the summer and troop camping, council program events, and training sessions during the year. Swimming facilities are available.
