Rancho del Chaparral

Rancho del Chaparral: a Traditional Summer Camp

Rancho del Chaparral has been part of the Girl Scout camp tradition and will be celebrating its 50thAnniverary in 2019! Rancho is located outside of Cuba, NM in the Jemez Mountains in a forested area covered in ponderosa pine and mixed conifer on more than 1,100 acres. Girls will experience the beauty and wildlife as deer, elk, and a variety of native wildlife can be spotted near camp. Housing units include platform tents, adirondacks, and hogans with cots or bunk beds with mattresses. Each unit has a pavilion or shelter for group activities, a campfire circle, and a wash area with sinks and latrines. Meals are served family style at Casa Grande Dining Hall. Girls will explore Rancho’s creek and the Mystery Tree, visit the archery range, riding arena and tails, do arts & crafts, go on trail hikes, learn about natural sciences, cook over the campfire, and go overnight camping under the stars. Troops and families can also experience the adventure by attending one of our weekend camps with their girls.
