CAMPER GENDER(S): All Girl Campers.

BRIEF CAMP DESCRIPTION: Lantern Creek is an overnight camp for girls ages 7-17 located in the piney woods of Montgomery,Texas. We have gone beyond the traditional rules for what summer camp "should" be and developed unexpected, wide-ranging activities with a common theme: fostering self-confidence and creative thinking in girls.

VIEW CAMP PHOTO

CAMP LOCATION: We are located about 1 hour north of Houston, 2.5 hours east of Austin, on 100 acres of the beautiful Texas Piney Woods. Please visit our website and our Events page (lanterncreekevents.com) for lots of camp photos!

CAMP FACILITIES: Our camp features four adorable bunkhouse cabins that have central air & heat. We have an expansive dining room that seats 200, four art studios, a brand new swimming pool with beach entry, large deep end and multiple water features, a fully equipped high and low ropes challenge course, a lighted sports pavilion, two lakes, 40 foot water slide, archery range, gaga pit, and volleyball court.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Camp Lantern Creek promotes girl empowerment activities that are designed to help every camper become a modern Renaissance girl. We have classes in everything from painting to tire-changing, fine art to Archery. We believe she should have the chance to do it all, or at least try it for herself. We’ve thrown out the traditional rules of what every “well-rounded” girl should do or learn or know.

Our goal: to help her make her art, find her voice, discover her path and learn some emotional and life skills along the way. That’s why our programming spans everything from painting to technical theater to singing to tire-changing and working with power tools. We believe she can do it all, or at least have the chance to try every bit of it for herself.

We focus on teaching creative and critical thinking skills while allowing every camper to just be herself. All of our activities, from art and theater to ropes and canoeing, are open to all skill and experience levels and are the perfect vehicle for fostering self-confidence, self-esteem and leadership.

Camp Lantern Creek is unique in our dedication to camper-centered learning. We put campers first. We are focused on the camper’s needs, abilities, interests and learning styles. Our activities and our leadership program acknowledge camper voice as central to the learning process for every camper. Camp Lantern Creek girls are encouraged to be active, responsible participants in shaping their camp experience. We believe outdoor play is important as well, with a ropes course, pool, lake and multi-story water slide. A camper might spend part of her morning making pop art, the other half in a canoe, and the afternoon in “Rosie’s Riveters,” a class designed to teach girls how to use real-world tools.

Our mission is to create and sustain a magical environment where campers try new things every day while making lifelong friendships.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: We have a national class leadership program that begins with rising 9th graders and proceeds through the high school year. We have intentionally developed training that lends itself extremely well to college and job applications, as well as rounding out real-world skills.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: We have limited scholarships available. Please contact owner, Sunni Markowitz at sunni[AT]camplanterncreek.com. All applications must be submitted by January 30th.

FAMILY CAMP SESSION(S): In the spring, we offer a weekend for mothers and daughters to experience a day in the life at camp together. This is ideal for new campers and their moms to see what we are all about and to meet our staff face to face. This year that weekend is March 2rd - 54h. Visit the website for more information

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: The Road Less Traveled as an organization was founded by Jim and Donna Stein in 1991, and has been successfully running safe, exciting, life-changing trips for teens ever since. Both Jim and Donna are still the current directors, and are integrally involved in every single aspect of the company. In the summer, they are on call 24/7, available both to parents as well as to our leaders in the field.

We are an ACA accredited organization with an impeccable track record. We believe in the process of accreditation. It allows us to compare our standards to other professionals in the industry. Our accreditation allows us to follow specific standards related to leader screening including use of application forms, reference checks, personal interviews, work history review, and background checks.

Many years ago, we were the first company serving young adults to require that all leaders have a Wilderness First Responder (WFR) medical certification. WFR training is far more advanced than standard first aid or wilderness first aid. In addition to this certification, we carry extensive first aid kits on all of our programs that include antibiotics and epinephrine. Contents, protocols, and standing orders are reviewed and updated every year by our Medical Director who is an MD.

Since our inception, RLT has been on the cutting edge of technological advances in communication. We began carrying Iridium satellite phones on all of our programs as soon as they were available. Today we continue to carry the latest in emergency communication systems. According to geographic location, programs are equipped with satellite phones, ground-to-air radios, and/or cellular phones providing the possibility of 24-hour access to medical help in case of emergency.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: We offer many need-based scholarships and financial aid packages. Visit Geography of Hope's website to learn more: Our Camp Website Link: www.geographyofhope.org

Lone Oak Ranch is home to Camp Kiowa

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: In the Fall of 2003, Daryl Gelender and Jill Stolbach, both Dallas residents and former Greenhill private school teachers, dreamed of a place children could learn through an elaborate enrichment program taught by professionals in a summer camp environment. It was from this dream that Camp Kiowa brought its first campers to Texas Woman’s University in Denton during the summer of 2004.

In 2005, Brian and Jennifer Manhart purchased Camp Kiowa in an effort to maintain the high-quality enrichment program already in place, and to incorporate all the benefits of a traditional camp experience. After 2 years of continual growth on the university campus, Brian and Jennifer decided to offer an additional enrichment experience in a more traditional camp environment. The university experience many campers have known as Camp Kiowa evolved into Kiowa U. Many campers, in search of a more traditional style of overnight camp, but looking for the depth only found in an enrichment program, enjoyed the experience known as Adventure Kiowa.

In 2009, The Manhart family purchased the future home of Camp Kiowa(Lone Oak Ranch). They understood the value of joining both Kiowa U and Adventure Kiowa into one experience… Camp Kiowa at Lone Oak Ranch. This program offers the best of both worlds… traditional overnight camp, educational programs, relational activities, fun evening programs and genuine friendships! The Manharts also understood the benefit of living year-round on the property with other team leaders that could focus on quality programming in a very safe environment. The group has been extremely successful with “off-season” events and is now equipped to produce only the best summer camp experience with Camp Kiowa.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: Looking for an exciting, resume building, opportunity? Come join Camp Kiowa at Lone Oak Ranch for two weeks this summer!! Students entering their Junior year can apply We have opening the two terms: July 5- July 19 OR July 26- August 9.
