Camp Bette Perot is located outside of Palestine, Texas and covers 1,400 acres. The camp is home to our Equestrian Program with a large riding arena and diverse riding trails. Camp program facilities include an Olympic-sized swimming pool, extensive nature study sites, a sports/ game field, archery range, and ropes challenge course. Camp Bette Perot is the home of the award winning Tejas Riders, who provide countless hours of service to our Equestrian Program.
Property Assessment:
  • Strong equestrian, ropes and archery programs
  • Substantial acreage
  • Most housing units, other than Bette's Treehouse, are nearing the end of their optimal lives
  • Facilities do not meet current program needs
  • Current utilization: 7,738 girls and adult members
Recommendation:
Camp Bette Perot will be the Center of Excellence for Horsemanship and will have progressive equestrian, ropes, nature, and animal programs. Additionally, housing units will be substantially improved.
Below is a proposed site plan with features of the revised property. The ultimate completion of the property vision is dependent on donor funding.
