Camp has transformed my life. When you step foot on the grounds, everyone is so happy, welcoming, and kind. On your first night you are officially placed in a tribe. Your tribe becomes your family. Being in the same tribe that my mom was in when she was a kid is so cool. I feel like I am connected to all of the past Kiowas. My brother is a Sioux, like my grandfather and uncle. We are third generation campers. That’s how much our family loves Vista Camps. I feel like I am carrying on a legacy. Every camper leaves a mark somewhere, from the Vista sign to the art shed to their bunk. I have formed so many great relationships in just weeks because living, swimming, and having fun with people does miracles for friendships. I can’t express how much I love camp and my camp friends in adequate words. PLEASE send your girl to SV! It’s the best place ever.

What’s Your Thing?

Into waterskiing? Ever been canoeing? How about horseback riding, archery, riflery, or fencing? Have you ever been on a ropes course? Want to learn how to play a ukulele?

Maybe you just like having a great time with friends and want to be accepted for who you are.

Summer at Camp Sierra Vista for Girls and Rio Vista for Boys is so much fun!

Chill at Camp. Make new amigos. Do fun stuff.

Life at camp is low stress (no homework!) because social pressure is not cool — be yourself! This summer we invite you to hang out and discover a whole new kind of fun!

Live in a Cabin.

Yup. You’ll get to live in a real stone cabin. The Hill Country breeze will wake you up in the morning and cool you off at night. Your cabin will have electricity, a comfy bed, and lots of new friends.

You’ll be living with kids your age plus 2 or more counselors (who are really college students in disguise). It’s a lot like a mega-sleepover.

Howdy, my name’s Reese!

Fried chicken & fajitas

Camp wouldn’t be as fun if the food wasn’t great.

We bake our own bread (it’s delicious!), make lots of yummy desserts, have a salad bar, breakfast bar, plus your favorites like hamburgers, spaghetti, fresh fruit, granola, and ice cream!

You be you!

Feel more confident as you learn new things. Prove to yourself that you can overcome obstacles on your own. Learn to be a better friend. Be happier without devices, social media, or any of the other stuff people turn to.

Tell your parents about Vista Camps. Ask if you can take a tour and get a free gift!

Don’t miss out! If you’re not here, your summer will be boring. You’ll do the same old things, and you’ll start the next school year as the same old you.
