Last Chance to Visit El Rancho Cima Scout Camp before its Closure--Decommissioning Ceremony Sat. July 15, 2017--register by 7/9

Posted on Jun 29 2017 - 8:35am

Troop 511 Scouts, Scouters and Families:

El Rancho Cima Scout Camp has been a gorgeous jewel on the Blanco River a few miles upstream from Wimberley, Texas; known to Scouts and Scouters for 60 years. Many Scouts from across the state have camped, hiked, swam and ridden horseback there over the years. Its owner, Sam Houston Council BSA of Houston, has decided to sell the camp after this summer's camp season. The 2015 Memorial Day Floods along the Blanco that devastated the camp were the last straw. For those of you who have camped there, and for those who never got the chance, you have one more opportunity to visit El Rancho Cima on Saturday, July 15, 2017, from 1-9 pm. The camp's Official Decommissioning Ceremony will take place that day. Visitors will pay $15, which includes a BBQ dinner, a Decommissioning patch, hiking to Sentinel Peak, swimming and snorkeling (bring your suit and gear), shooting sports, and a final Closing Campfire at 7pm. The event is open to everyone. Children 5 and under are free. Registration details below; click "read more."
