About Girls Camp
The bedrock statement for Tecaboca Girls Camp is “Mulier in Deo” … be a Woman of God. Girls will grow in Leadership, Honesty, Integrity, Humility, Fortitude, Loyalty, Obedience, and living in a Spirit of Service. As Proverbs 31:25 directs us, “She is clothed in Strength and Dignity,” which is the scriptural base of this camp program.
Base Camp, 2nd-6th graders
In this camp, there are cabin groups of eight similar aged campers and two counselors. This group forms an important part of a camper’s community. Campers try all activities, and two week campers are able to refine their choices to their favorite ones.
Remuda Camp, Vaqueros 5th-8th graders
The Remuda Camp has as their primary activity getting to know about horses and other barnyard animals, increasing riding skills, and developing a day to day understanding of caring for animals. Campers live in a covered shelter or in a wall tent on a wooden deck, much like the open air bunkhouses where cowboys lived in the past. Of course, these campers are not left out of other camp activities, and enjoy a well-rounded camp experience with evening activities with camp teams, the very popular cowboy night, and campfires with all of the other campers.
Outpost Hillside Camp, 7th-9th graders
Junior High Campers live in an Outpost area in tent units, with up to 4 campers in a wall tent set on a wooden platform; up to five tents are in a unit, with two counselors in each unit. Campers have more freedom to pick their activities, plan new activities, and plan cook out meals.
Ranger and C.I.T. Programs, 10th-11th graders
Campers that are invited for these two programs participate in all camp activities, plus advanced activities and leadership training.
Faith at Camp
Girls participate in planning and executing the liturgy, much of which will occur outdoors. Music, Morning Prayer, and evening prayer further strengthens the bonds with each other, God, and the community from which they come. The primary way the Faith is brought into the Camp experience is through intentional daily living as Christ called us – as giving, service oriented, kind, and forgiving people.
