Connect to Campers & Pictures
We encourage camper families to contact their campers during their stay. However, because the Trek campers will be camping in different locations, they will only receive mail or email on Thursday and Friday.
Some parents choose to write letters and postcards prior to the camp week and leave them with the camp staff to distribute. We recommend this if you would like your camper to receive notes from you earlier in the week.
If you would like to write your camper from home, please mail very early. Write to:
(Camper Name, Texas Trek)
Ebert Ranch Camp
725 Ebert Lane
Harper, TX 78631
Faxes to campers will not be accepted.
Campers can receive email! Email to campers will be printed out while at Ebert Ranch. During the week there is no internet access, so all email will be distributed upon return to Ebert Ranch on Thursday. This summer, we are using a system called Bunk1 that regulates our email to protect us from viruses and to help cover the cost of printing each email to pass it along to the camper. To email your camper, you’ll either need to set up an account or sign in to the account you previously created. Email with attachments, including photos, will not be accepted.

1. Read the following instructions and then click the link below
2. Click “Need an Account or have an invitation code” at the top of the page

You will only need to register once, and once you register, you will be able to invite
others to use these services.
Because there is no internet access while on the road or at the parks, we encourage you not to purchase the Bunk Replies.
Parents will be able to view online photos of camp during the week. Photos of each day will be updated overnight for viewing the next day. For pictures, you will need to set up/sign in to your Bunk1 account (instructions above). Viewing pictures is free and each high quality photo download is $0.99. You may also purchase photo gifts at their website. For your camper’s safety, pictures are password protected. The password will be emailed to your family email the week before your camp session.
Upon arrival, campers and parents may purchase a group photo for their week of camp. It will be an 8×10 photo and will have all campers, staff, and information about the week printed on it. Campers who order this will receive it prior to going home. Cost-$5.00
We are unable to offer a DVD option for Texas Trek.
