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 family
donated the land to create a very special place for Girl Scouts to
experience the outdoors. Designated a State Antiquities Landmark by
the Texas Historical Commission, Camp La Jita rests on 236 acres of
Texas Hill Country land, one hour and twenty minutes west of San Antonio.
Reservations at Camp La Jita are currently suspended; however, GSSWT
is making every effort to allow troops and communities a safe camping experience.
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.
Usage: Resident camp during summer; troop camping, council
program events, and training sessions during the year; horse camp
program during the winter
