Indianhead Camps Minimize

Summertime doesn't usually mean hunting...That's not the case on an exotic game ranch such as Indianhead Ranch.

Indianhead Ranch is 10,000 acres Estate, privately owned and operated with 25+ different species of Native and Exotic Game and is located in Del Rio, Texas, in Val Verde County.
Indianhead Ranch has been rated one of the Top 3 Exotic Game Ranches in Texas.
During Summer, Indianhead Ranch turns into a Summer Camp for Teenagers from around the Globe, offering 4 different types of Camps, coed, over 1 or 2 weeks.                                           

Learning shoudn't be limited to a classroom...

"Indianhead Camps provide the best possible learning experience in the Lone Star State. Whether it is shooting skills, outdoor survival, archery, camping, hunting and hunter education, living history or learning about Texas Native landscapes -  kids get real experiences, and for that - they get real great memories, too!"
Steve Hall, Education DirectorOf the Texas Parks and Wildlife
The Camp Mission is to Educate your Teenager in Wildlife Conservation by:
  • Expanding their Knowledge in Gun Safety and Gun Care
  • Learning practical Camping, Hunting and Survival Skills
  • Enjoying the outdoors and the Wildlife
  • Discovering the World of Hunting by each of them harvesting one trophy.
  • Becoming a Hunter by obtaining a Texas Hunter Certification (Hunting License), & Bow Certification.

 These goals are achieved in a control environment, on our 10,000 acres Estate, under the supervision of Certified Professionals and with the participation of counselors to follow each group of teenagers. Each Camp has a maximum of 12 teenagers separated within the three Ranch Guest Houses, one being solely reserved for the girls with a girl counselor.

Each Camper gets the opportunity to put into practice the things they are taught in the classroom (or in this case in the Hunting Lodge). Campers are exposed to different professionals that work with the great outdoors on a daily basis. A Texas Game Warden speaks to the campers about Texas Game Laws and what it takes to become a Game Warden.

Park Service Rangers give a presentation on the history of the area before escorting the campers to view real historic cave paintings located on Indianhead Ranch. A skills trail helps the campers understand hunting ethics.
