If you have questions or concerns about your camper, please feel free to contact our registrar’s office. Monday – Thursday 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
If your camper is immunocompromised or has an underlying health condition that makes them especially vulnerable, we strongly recommend you make a decision using your best judgement and consultation with your health care provider regarding your child’s participation in a camp session.
The protection and safety of our campers is always on our minds. Even before COVID-19, our staff continually had the security, health, and fun of the camp experience under constant consideration.
This summer more than ever we are carefully reviewing every detail of our operations in an effort to provide the safest possible experience for our families.
While no environment can be 100% free from uncertainty, our already high standards of programs and sanitation coupled with enhancements for 2020 will provide a fun summer camp while putting the health and safety of your campers first!

May 18, 2020
We are thrilled to announce that today The State of Texas has approved camps opening for the summer season. We will be taking some time to implement the new guidelines issued and provide additional training for our staff.
We will be postponing the opening of our season to reflect the implementation of these new policies.
NEW DATES ARE AS FOLLOWS:
Session 1 (Day Camp) = June 22-25 daily 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Session 2 (Kids Overnight) = June 29-July 2
Session 3 (Kids Overnight II) = July 6 – 9
Session 4 (JH Camp) = July 13-16
If you need information about changing sessions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org OR direct message us through Facebook for the fastest response time as call volume is expected to be high.
We are still awaiting final guidance from the Texas Department of State Health Services (our licensing authority) as to our permitted start date and capacity levels. Our goal is to be able to release this information as soon as it becomes available to us (we expect this to be the week of May 18th). But in the interim we are actively updating our policies, procedures and training to reflect the most current information and best practices.
