How can we contact you?
Will my daughter be able to call home?
Yes and no. It is preferable that the girls do not call home since this may foster homesickness. On the other hand, whenever there is sufficient reason, the girls will be able to do so.
If we have an emergency who can I contact?
You will receive an e-mail during June which will have contact names and their phone numbers for any question you might have during the week of camp.

Letters are always welcome and should be sent to the following address: Stoney Creek Ranch, 1912 Zimmerscheidt Road, New Ulm TX 78950. Unfortunately, we cannot accept any form of care packages, boxes, containers, etc. only letters.
Who are your counselors? How do you select them?
Our counselors are college and high school young women who have demonstrated leadership qualities and attend formative activities at Sheridan Study Center*.
