Girls will reside in a rustic cabin in one of the 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’ cabins.
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.

"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.
