Camp Myra S. Pryor
In case you haven’t heard, we are raising $12 million to expand Camp Myra S. Pryor, our premier camp located on the Colorado River. Originally a cattle ranch, Camp Myra S. Pryor is a beautiful 277-acre property that will be home to progressive boating instruction, an equitation program, archery and even a 1,000 square foot nature observatory overlooking the river.
Funding and naming opportunities are still available, and payments can be made over a five year period. If you or someone you know would like to support the development of Camp Myra S. Pryor, contact Beth Shea at 713-292-0321 or email@example.com or click the “Donate Online” link to the right, under “Quick Links”.
Fall 2013 Update
Having completed phase one, The Ranch Site, of Camp Myra S. Pryor’s construction projects for a total investment of $2.5 million, we are shifting our focus to raising money for and developing The Lake Site. The feature of the Lake Site will be a five acre lake that will facilitate progressive boating programs for girls.
To prepare Camp Pryor to accommodate more girls, we are constructing three new cabin clusters that will sleep a total of 144 girls and adults a night. The cabin clusters will be treehouse-themed and will be elevated with pathways for girls to explore and enjoy the outdoors. The treehouse cabins at our other camp properties are very popular, so the Camp Pryor cabins will be modeled after them. Each cluster will contain four cabins, a shower building and kitchen shelter.
Other projects to be completed as funds are raised include an amphitheater, activity field, ceremonial bridge, archery and rifle ranges, shade pavilions, a canoe dock and camp library.
We will be planning a celebration for all of our generous donors who have contributed to the completion of this phase of the project, so please stay tuned. Check back to this page for additional photos as construction progresses!
Existing structures have been joined together to create the Mamie E. George Activity Center. Here girls will utilize classroom space for learning new outdoors and leadership skills.
The roof has been completed on the DeSanctis Family Gathering Pavilion. This structure will give Girl Scouts a meeting place at camp.
Construction of the Hamill Foundation Welcome Center continues. This space will be where troops check in for camping.
