To set foot onto the Camp Champions campus is to enter a world you might have thought only existed in movies. That is unless you ever attended sleep-away camp, in which case, it feels like coming home.
Cabins on stilts line the side of a lake dedicated to swimming, jumping on an inflated tarp called “the Glob,” canoeing, and jet skiing. There’s a ropes course and an arts-and-crafts cabin, a rock-climbing wall and a zip line….
Founded by sports legends, including Darrell Royal, the camp is now much more than a sports camp, providing over 45 activities and focusing on the Youth Development aspects of camp. Camp Champions is set lakefront on beautiful Lake LBJ in the Hill Country of Texas, one hour northwest of Austin. They are on approximately 100 acres of land and they want their campers to pursue big dreams, to serve others, to make a difference in the world around them. Their motto? “We know that every one of our campers has what it takes-we just try to bring out the champion that’s already in each one of them!”
“If we had to pick one coming-of-age fixture to forever freeze in time, it would undoubtedly be summer camp. Just think of that smoky scent of roasting marshmallows, or that unforgettable day of canoeing, right into the heart of the wilderness. Of course, there are those rowdy mess halls, and muddy treks back to cabin, but that’s all part of the deal.”
“Located in the picture-perfect Hill Country of Central Texas, Camp Champions takes a technology-free summer experience to the next level. Complete with a petting zoo, pirate ship, and “Texas Two Step Tower,” this co-educational sleepaway camp has long been devoted to growing champions, and encouraging young leaders.”
