Camp Misty Meadows
Horseback riding is the main attraction at Camp Misty Meadows near Conroe. The Robert and Janice McNair Equestrian Center includes four riding arenas and a herd of 40 horses waiting to be ridden, loved, hugged and groomed by summer campers.
Girls can experience different levels of equestrian experiences. In addition to the four-legged attractions, the camp offers a pool, archery range, riflery range and a covered pavilion.
Traditional camp activities such as making crafts, hanging out with friends, enjoying nature, going on hikes, cooking outdoors, playing games and making new friends are all part of the fun. Cabins and dormitories are home to girls staying at Camp Misty Meadows. Campers enjoy most meals in the air-conditioned comfort of the Wortham Lodge. The lodge also features a stage, craft/activity rooms and a large covered patio.
