Camp Branson New Vehicle Bridge Campaign Success!

The Department and everyone associated with Field Camp is very grateful to the many alumni and friends who helped us to raise more than $250,000 for the new vehicular bridge, which was installed at Camp Branson in May 2015, just in time for the start of camp.

Coming up to the centennial of Camp Branson in 2011, a fundraising goal of $300,000 was set to secure the future of the camp facilities. This has been vastly surpassed, and in total more than $730,000 has now been raised for the Camp Branson Improvement Fund and the Camp Branson Endowment since they started in 2007. This astonishing achievement reflects the huge impact this award-winning camp has had on so many students over the years. Thank you all!

Fire Distant

Smoke billows out of Sinks Canyon from a fire that was dangerously close to Camp Branson in July 2013. This photo was taken atop the Nugget Sandstone on south Dallas Dome looking toward the northwest.

Fire Close

Smoke marks the retreat of the fire that almost claimed Camp Branson in July 2013. Note the destruction just on the other side of Sinks Canyon Road from camp. Were we really lucky that camp was spared!
