Summer Camp

Our summer camp is composed of two month-long sessions from June through July. All lessons are aligned with TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills), ELPS (English Language Proficiency Standards), and SEL (Social and Emotional Learning), and incorporate an academic project, a physical challenge, and the opportunity to reflect in each session.

El Ranchito Summer Camp

El Ranchito shares a long partnership with El Buen, and offers a unique nature-immersion summer camp on the Shield Ranch just west of Austin for youth from low-income families. The program provides a camping experience full of educational opportunities and programs that build life skills as well as an appreciation for the natural world. Three core programs are available: Nature Discovery Camp for 4th – 9th graders, Conservation Corps for 10th-12th graders, and the Gulf Coast Expedition for 18 – 20-year-olds. Due to COVID-19, El Ranchito has also adapted to a virtual-learning environment. Learn more at
