Camp Howdy

Camp Howdy
About Camp Howdy

Camp Howdy is a primitive camp located near Bryan. Every June, Howdy Day Camp has a new, exciting theme and a chance for girls from kindergarten to 6th grade to have a great time in the outdoors for a week. The camp is entirely volunteer-run; our volunteers include 7th graders through high school graduates who act as "Aides" to the camp, our camp directors, and the Camp Howdy Crew, which does trail-clearing and builds some terrific structures to be used by the campers.

While the Day Camp is the main draw, Camp Howdy hosts many events throughout the year, such as Fall Campout, Cast Iron Cook-off and FoxFire, as well as many troop camping events. Oftentimes, troops of both Girl and Boy Scouts offer to perform some service to the camp, such as the construction of an accessible latrine or the clearing of trails to the Ginger Freeman wildlife area.
