Who we are

Worth Ranch, known as “The Big Adventure,” has been a Longhorn Council tradition since 1929. Worth is one of America’s oldest and finest traditional Scouting programs. We are located 60 miles west of Fort Worth on the Brazos River at the foot of Kyle Mountain. The historic stone and petrified wood buildings that encircle our parade ground showcase the rich and colorful history of Worth Ranch. Comanche Indians once lived on our parade ground, and Quannah Parker, the last great war chief of the Comanche, was born only a few miles up the Brazos River. The chuck wagon was developed near here in 1866.
