I consider it a gift that she is able to have this experience in the world we live in...also, she is gluten intolerant and they accommodate. RID: 37352

Click to report rating    6/5/11   5     5     5     5     5   Camp Mystic is truly the best place in the world! The staff is welcoming, the cabins are nice, and the activities are amazing! If you don't like an activity, you can go to the office on 'Ads n' drops' day and change your activity, no questions asked. I am going on my 6th year at Mystic, and I wouldn't go to another camp for anything. Each camper gets an ample amount of attention from everyone; I know every 400+ girl that goes to Mystic my term and there are about 6 girls per counselor. The value is great! Memories that last a lifetime are priceless. If you are looking for a REALLY GOOD camp, choose MYSTIC!!! dbdbd There's a camp on the Guadalupe river, it's the camp of my dreams where the whip o wills blow softly and the bright moon beams... On the banks of the Guadalupe river, hearts are loyal and true! Camp Mystic I will pledge my true and faithful love to you! <3 RID: 36039

The staff and values taught are terrific. The activities, facilities and food are fantastic. We wouldn't send our girls anywhere else! RID: 36036

It's a camp and the girls get a superb camping experience. Your daughters, nieces, grand daughters, etc. will love it and come home with beautiful memories. RID: 35744

Click to report rating    4/13/11   5     5     5     5     5   There aren't enough wonderful things to say about Camp Mystic. It is a truly special place among a sea of what I understand to be excellent camps. I grew up going here, was a counselor for three years, and will be sending my newborn daughter there as soon as she's old enough. Girls who attend Camp Mystic have a well-rounded experience, and there is something for every girl here. Each summer I left camp in tears, but I also left a more spiritual, happy, and well-rounded individual. I made lifelong friends who were a part of my wedding day, my daughter's life, and I treasure those friendships over almost any others. As a staffer and a camper I can say the Eastland family and their wonderful staff care deeply about the well-being of their precious charges each summer. The food IS great and the facilities are more than adequate for a summer camp. There are so many special things about Camp Mystic that I can't recommend it highly enough. RID: 35637

Click to report rating    2/25/11   5     5     5     5     5   Your child will cry when it's time for her to say good-bye to Camp Mystic & her Mystic friends. She will want to keep going back long after the ages when most girls want to "stay home" for the summer. She'll meet friends, with lots of different developing interests, who she will have for the rest of her life. Not only are more traditional athletic activities available, there are many others which allow a camper to feel at home & have other areas where she can shine! It's difficult to say enough positive things about this camping experience. The elements of the living facilities are an asset, in that they help create a strong sense of identity with cabin groups of more than just a few campers. It promotes the desire to use the cabin for basic sleep & hygiene(facilities appointments are MORE than adequate)& for girls to then get out of the cabin & take in & take on all the rich opportunities in a full program which utilize a great portion of the approx.700acres. Mystic! Can't do better! RID: 35196

Click to report rating    1/18/11   5     5     5     5     5   I attended Camp Mystic as a first year counselor and I could not have been any more impressed. Working for such a caring family and being around the amazing Mystic family was truly paradise. Iv been to other camps as a camper and a counselor and Mystic tops them all. From the directors to the food, Camp Mystic can honestly be named "heaven on earth". Highly Recommended! RID: 34872

Click to report rating    5/2/09   5     5     5     5     5   best camp ever! the counselors are almost all previous campers so they know everything there is to know about the camp. The food is amazing!!! this is because the cook is the son of the owners and we get things like chocolate mouse in a chocolate bowl. but it is all served family style. everyone is very nice to each other and the activities are amazing! there is very easy access to the river. if you are religious, it is good for you definitely but even if you aren't very religious (like me) it is amazing! good horseback-riding program and the cabins are nice but still a great camping experience (large fans instead of ac) there are many activities that are really super fun like a field day and carnival. also, the campers have a rest period and write and receive many letters. the counselors are very good about helping girls with homesickness. there is a daily snack time also. the infirmary is very easily accessible. i have gone 5 years and will continue! YOU NEED TO COME!!!! RID: 29647

This camp has been my home away from home every summer now for the last 6 years and I cant put into words how much it means to me. At this camp you really find true sisterhood and friendship here.

The food is AMAZING and the deserts are just fabulous! I highly recommend this camp for any girl who wants to make great friends, grow spirtually, or just wants a full out camp expirience. RID: 26033

Click to report rating    7/4/08   5     5     5     5     5   i have been going to camp mystic for 6 years now. I go back for my 7th year in 5 days. and i could not be more excited. i go 2nd term and it is by far the most amazing place i have ever been. there is not a place i would rather spend a month of my summer at. the atmosphere is loving, spiritual and of course... AMAZINGLY FUN. camp mystic is my escape from drama and the stresses of home. the counselors are life-changing. they become your best friends. the camp grounds are natural and beautiful. The food was even better than i had heard. chocolate truffles, amazing pizza, great ice cream, enchiladas, and THE BEST COFFEE CAKE YOU HAVE EVER TASTED are just a couple of the amazing meals that camp mystic's 5 star chefs have to offer. the life long friendships and never ending sisterhoods that take place are priceless. Camp Mystic has exposed me to different people, different ways of looking at myself, and taught me to be a better christian. i could not thank dick and tweety enough. RID: 24578

Click to report rating    1/7/08   5     5     5     5     5   Mystic is a wonderful experience. Especially for girls today who are flooded with some unhealthy images on TV and in Magazines. Camp Mystic brings them back to just being girls, building life-long friendships, making the most of each day, learning new skills outdoors, having lots and lots of fun, enjoying God's creation, and growing in a positive Chrisitian environment Saying that, my daughters are 3rd generation campers. Camp Mystic has been in the same family since it began in 1926. What a blessing that is - it is extended family for so many camp families today. RID: 18717

Click to report rating    1/6/08   5     5     5     5     5   I love this camp forever. Every one is kind to you. We have great activities, and a little friendly compition. We even have two dances. Every thing about this camp is perfect. I couldn't ask for a better camp. I count down the days untill I go back to this camp! I love this camp more than words can say. All of my friends think I am crazy to go to this camp because I live in New York City, but I just couldn't miss out on second term and all my friends. I could go on and on but I still couldn't explain how amazing this camp is. Who ever goes there once for one term has to come back. We just can't stay away. There are alot more great things about Camp Mystic That I could say. I just can't fit it all. Kids come from all over the states to go here. One year there was even a girl from Canada. I love love love love love love love love love love love this camp. I think its the best best best best camp in the world. I can not wait untill next year. I have made so many friends from this camp!!!! RID: 18686

Click to report rating    12/28/06   5     5     5     5     5   I LUV CAMP MYSTIC! IT'S THE BEST CAMP IN THE WORLD. THE STAFF IS GREAT AND THE ACTIVITIES ARE SO MUCH FUN. THERE IS NO OTHER PLACE IN THE WORLD THAT I WOULD RATHER BE THAN AT CAMP. THE CABINS ARE NICE AND AIRY. THE ATMOSPHERE IS BEAUTIFUL LOCATED RIGHT ON THE GUADALUPE RIVER. THE GIRLS PICK A TRIBE ON THE FIRST NIGHT OF CAMP. KIOWA OR TONKAWA. THE GIRLS THEN BUILD LIFE LONG RELATIONSHIPS WITH THE GIRLS IN THEIR TRIBE AND LEARN TO LOVE AND CARE FOR ONE ANOTHER. THE THREE MYSTIC GOALS ARE 1. BE A BETTER PERSON FOR BEING AT MYSTIC 2. LET MYSTIC BRING OUT THE BEST IN YOU 3. GROW SPIRITUALLY. I LOVE CAMP MYSTIC! I CAN'T WAIT UNTIL SUMMER! RID: 6342
