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 family donated the land to create a very special place for Girl Scouts to experience the outdoors. 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.
