Worth Ranch Summer Camp 2023
Traditional Summer Camp at Worth Ranch 2023
Worth Ranch, known as “The Big Adventure,” has been a Longhorn Council tradition since 1929. Worth Ranch is one of America’s oldest and finest traditional Scouting programs. Located in scenic Palo Pinto county about 60 miles west of Fort Worth, the camp is on the Brazos River at the foot of Kyle Mountain
The camp’s historic stone and petrified wood buildings that encircle our parade ground showcase the rich and colorful history of Worth Ranch. Comanche Indians once lived on our parade ground, and Quanah Parker, the last great war chief of the Comanche, was born only a few miles up the Brazos River. The chuck wagon was developed near here in 1866. When your troop attends Worth Ranch you’ll receive traditional Scouting at its best from our talented staff and outstanding program facilities. Your Scouts can climb and rappel on the cliffs of our Climbing Garden, fish, canoe and kayak with us on the Brazos River, hike Kyle Mountain, swim and play water basketball and volleyball in our 2 pools, see the best campfire programs in the country, and eat in the air-conditioned Duncan Dining Hall.
