Support Our Capital Project Campaign

Camp RIO needs upgrading to become a best-in-class environmental education and preservation site, and we are working to create the first overnight summer camp available to all children in south Texas. We have just begun our capital campaign and have an overall fundraising goal of $6.45 million to support all necessary renovation and construction. Every contribution counts, so please support Camp RIO today!

Donations will be used to fund the following projects:

  • Brand new pool facility (see rendering below)

  • Brand new overnight boys and girls’ cabins (the structure pictured below is similar to the cabins we are building.)
