During their one- or two-week stay, girls will reside in a rustic
cabin in one of camp’s seven living units. Each unit is equipped with
showers and flush toilets and is continually supervised by two or more
trained camp counselors who are housed close to the girls’
Each day, girls spend time at a variety of activities and have a rest period after lunch during the warmer part of the day to write letters, read or play board games. Afternoons are filled with more activities, a snack, dinner, late night swimming, stargazing and singing by the campfire.
Kapers (aka camp chores) are a part of each day’s activities and help girls develop a sense of responsibility and appreciation for keeping the Texas summer retreat camp neat and clean. Meals are provided three times a day and served in a central dining hall, except when girls plan a cookout in their unit.

Camp La Jita
19459 Ranch Rd. 187, Utopia, TX 78884
"La Jita" is a Native American phrase meaning “Precious Possession,” aptly chosen as the name of GSSWT’s Girl Scout camp for kids, that rests on 236 acres of Texas Hill Country land along the beautiful Sabinal River near Utopia. The John F. Camp family donated the land in 1946 for summer retreat Camp La Jita and thousands of happy Texas campers have enjoyed it during the camp’s 70-year history.
Camp is a special place of self-discovery, laughter, fun and personal growth in a healthy outdoor environment. Girls plan their own adventurous program as they break away from their home routine and create fun for themselves at this kids camp. They gain self-confidence and enjoy a shared independence under the guidance of trained camp staff.
