Esto Vir defines the day-to-day life of Boys' Camp. To us, "Esto Vir" means to be a Godly Man, who strives to live the life of leadership, honesty, integrity, humility, fortitude, and a Spirit of Service. Every bit of activity time, meal time, rest time, and reflection time, are intentionally formed to promote these behaviors.
Mulier in Deo "be a Godly Woman" instills thecore values of leadership, honesty, integrity, humility, fortitude, and a spirit of service in all campers. The Girls' community centers around ranch life, particularly horses: their care, and riding well. The Girls live in a community that cooks many of their own meals, plans their daily program, and enjoys all that Tecaboca has to offer, from shooting sports to water activities.
