Headwaters sits at the base of the iconic Circle Bluff, just around the river bend from our Blue Hole Preserve. The camp is our newest, completed in 2013, and it serves our original mission established in 1954 when the Butt Family first bought the Wolfe Ranch to provide a place where young people who might not otherwise be able to afford it could have a first class camping experience. Today, this historic campsite is shared between two programs—H. E. Butt Foundation Camp and Laity Lodge Family Camp.
