May 16 Update: The Longhorn Council has made the difficult decision to NOT operate our summer RESIDENT camps and high adventure camps this summer at Camp Tahuaya, Worth Ranch, and Sid Richardson Scout Ranch.  This decision was made after a lengthy and difficult process of information gathering and discussion, with the main concern being for the safety of our Scouts, leaders and camp staff. Units may receive full credit for a future camp reservation, or transfer the fees to another camp or program, or request a full refund.
