Sitting on 3,000 breathtaking acres just 1.5hr drive from San Antonio*, this mountainous ranch is the most resort-like of any of our camps. From the comfortable and new accommodations, to the farm to table food, if you want to attend a camp without having to “rough it”, this one is for you.
The cabins range from tree-house style bunks to retrofitted silos, all celebrating the natural beauty of the outdoors, built with reclaimed barn wood and cedar-log bunkbeds. The pillow-top mattresses and air-conditioned bunks will ensure a good night's sleep, and the granite bathrooms will leave you wondering, “is this a camp or a resort?” You'll sleep like a baby at night and fly like an eagle during the day as your soar over this camp on the Blob!
We start each day with a healthy breakfast including eggs, bacon, pancakes, hot and cold cereals, juices, fresh fruit, yogurt and tons of coffee (and, of course, mimosas & Bloody Marys). For lunch and dinner, our chefs prepare delicious gourmet takes on traditional camp classics. You’ll find menu items including barbecued baby back ribs, rosemary skirt steak, chicken, corn on the cob, fish tacos, veggie burritos and more. Each meal is accompanied by healthy salads, fresh fruit and other side dishes. In addition to our standard menu, we offer gluten-free, vegetarian and other options for those with dietary concerns and restrictions.
The beautiful thing about having 'no counselors' is that you can make your weekend whatever you want it to be! We encourage our campers to jump into the camp experience and fill their days with sports and crafts, but if you want to lay out on the lakeside and sunbathe with a new friend, feel free.

While the activities are all “fun and games” during the day, our open bar takes the weekend experience to the next level. At breakfast, we have a Bloody Mary and Mimosa bar; beer and wine available at lunches, and from happy hour throughout the night, we have a full service open bar. In the evenings, we bring in world class DJ's and up-and-coming bands to play intimate, unforgettable shows. Since there's no party more fun than a costume party, we introduce themes for each bash well before the camp weekend, so everyone can prepare for the parties. The themes have ranged from "Superheroes and Villains" to “Jock Jams”, to “Wet Hot American Summer” and beyond. While we do have an 'open bar' available throughout the course of the weekend, we do not serve alcohol in between meals as we take the safety of our campers during our activity periods very seriously.
