Scouts BSA Summer Camps

Worth Ranch

The Big Adventure

Worth Ranch is located 60 miles west of Fort Worth on the Brazos River at the foot of Kyle Mountain. The 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 Quannah 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.

One of America’s oldest and finest traditional Scouting programs, when your troop attends Worth Ranch you’ll receive traditional Scouting at its best from our talented staff and outstanding facilities. Your Scouts can climb and rappel on the cliffs of our Climbing Gardens, fish, row, canoe and kayak with us on the Brazos River, hike Kyle Mountain, swim and play water basketball & volleyball in our 2 pools, see outstanding campfire programs, and eat in our big air-conditioned Duncan Dining Hall.

The Hammer Patrol

Hammer Patrol is for brand new Scouts (Scout Rank) and focuses on basic Scouting outdoor skills and the requirements for Tenderfoot, such as first aid, fire building, use of wood tools, map and compass reading, and knots and lashings. The Hammer Patrol also covers some requirements for 2nd and 1st Class. We encourage experienced troop leaders to assist Scouts enrolled in Hammer Patrol.

Individual youth and adults may spend a week learning to wakeboard at Steele Island Wakeboard Program. High adventure programs require a separate reservation and deposit.
