Nestled in a secret canyon approximately five miles northwest of Amarillo in the Texas Panhandle you will find Girl Scout Camp Kiwanis. The 381 acre Camp Kiwanis (originally named Camp Amaryllis) was purchased by Amarillo Council in 1928.
Stevens Ranch on the Brazos, near Glen Rose, is open to girls entering grades 2 - 12. Stevens Ranch was first acquired by Circle T Council in 1967, and records of the property date back to 1842. The historic farm house was built around 1936 and restored in 1974 and again in 1981. Two large oaks on the west side of the farm house were examined by a Glen Rose geologist and found to be 100 and 300 years old.
