FAQs

These are my questions. You might come up with something better on your own.

Parent FAQs

An overnight camp experience can prove one of the most significant growth experiences for a child. Living in close quarters with cabinmates and counselors, participating in a wide range of activities and being away from mom and dad gives kids a chance to learn things like respect for others, teamwork, self-confidence and independence. AND they have fun while they learn!

Close

Deciding whether or not your child is ready for overnight camp isn’t an exact science, but there are some good indicators.

1. Has your child spent the night away from home at a non-relatives house (best friend, etc.); how did he/she do?

2. Is your child talking about camp? Does he/she seem eager to attend camp?

If your child has spent the night away and done well, and if he/she seems eager to go to camp, these are great signs that he/she might be ready. But if you’re still unsure, take the time to call us at camp–based on our experience, we may be able to help you determine your child’s readiness!

Like many of the best things in life, camp takes time. It is not a fast-acting pill, nor is it something to rush through and check off the list. In fact, the more time you give camp, the better experience it will be. For this reason, we strongly believe that two weeks of camp is infinitely better than one.

However, our experience is that longer terms give most children a more rewarding camp experience. Our camper families confirm this: a meaningfully higher percentage of our three-week (Triple Play) and four-week (Triple Play + Home Run) campers come back to camp year after year. That’s no accident. No single factor can explain this–but a combination of factors blend together over the course of a longer term to leave an indelible imprint on our three- and four-week campers. Camp holds a special magic for them. For more in-depth information, click here!

We have a one week “starter term” designed especially for children finishing Kindergarten and 1st grade called “Batter Up!”. In this session, we introduce campers to the traditions and activities of camp in an age-appropriate way that they love.

We do not offer one week terms for older campers (2nd grade and older). The reason for this is simple: the best camp experiences happen over time. Typically, if a camper gets homesick, they’ll get over it by about Thursday or Friday of the first week of camp, once they’ve gotten into a rhythm. But if they attend for just 1 week, they have no time left to really enjoy the camp activities and friendships. We have designed our Batter Up program to avoid homesickness by providing almost constant activity, but this provides less time for self-discovery and relationship building – both critical aspects of our camp experience. A longer term allows campers to get over homesickness and still leave feeling positive about camp. It’s no accident that the majority of our Camp Champions campers come for three weeks–and that a higher percentage of campers return year after year from our three-week terms.

Close

One of the most significant elements of the camp experience is learning independence. We know it’s hard (especially for parents) to be apart for 2, 3 or 4 weeks; however, our experience has taught us that kids adjust to camp life much more easily if they don’t hear or see mom & dad while they’re at camp. Especially if a camper is or was homesick, hearing a parent’s voice can intensify sad feelings. Therefore, we do not have campers talk to parents on the phone, and we don’t have parent visiting days until the last day of camp.

We do, however, stay in contact with you while your child is at camp. You’ll receive a call from one of your child’s counselors during the first week of his/her stay, to let you know how he/she is doing. If any problem arises, we’ll contact you immediately.

We also provide a summer web site just for our camp families, called CAMParent. On this site, you can access pictures and articles about what’s happening at camp. You may not be able to attend camp with your child, but CAMParent’s the next best thing!

And finally, we invite you to call us at any time, just to check and see how your child is doing. We know that sending a child to camp can be more difficult for parents than for the camper! We want to work together with you to make sure your child has the best experience possible!

Our uncompromising dedication to help kids grow into CHAMPIONS. Look, we know that when it comes to selecting a camp for your child, you have a lot of choices. Do we have a beautiful setting? Yes, but so do a lot of other camps – and certainly a lot of other areas of the country will have more striking physical beauty than a camp in Texas. Great facilities? Sure – and perhaps the best waterfront in Texas – but you can find great facilities at other camps as well. These things are important, but they are not the heart of what we do.

What truly sets us apart is our drive to help kids learn what it is to live life as a CHAMPION. To treat others with RESPECT, to take RESPONSIBILITY for their actions, to live lives of INTEGRITY, to take RISKS that stretch themselves. We’ve built our entire program, the way we hire counselors, the criteria for every decision, on our desire to help kids grow into CHAMPIONS.

That’s why, when you call our office at any time during the year, there’s sure to be someone who knows your son or daughter and who is excited to talk with you about him/her. And that’s why we spend so much time selecting just the right counselors, spend so much time getting to know our campers, spend so much time after the summer staying in contact with our campers through newsletters and reunions. We want to be our campers’ biggest fans and cheerleaders – and we know that EVERY one of them has what it takes to become a CHAMPION.

It’s why campers keep coming back, year after year. It’s why we can prove such a valuable teammate for parents in helping their kids grow.

And it’s why we won’t ever stop improving, pushing the envelope, finding new ways to help kids grow into CHAMPIONS…

Universities all over the Southwest-primarily Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Mississippi, Arkansas, Kansas and New Mexico. Each year, we’ll recruit actively on about 40 college campuses (including the major universities in all of these states). Word-of-mouth from former campers and counselors also helps us find counselors from other regions of the country; and often even from some other countries.

We aggressively try to hire an ethnically diverse group of counselors. We believe it’s great for kids to see a group of people from various backgrounds who work together, care about each other, live by a high set of standards and values, and pour themselves out for campers. It’s a powerful statement to our campers.

In addition to the rigorous application and interview process, all counselors commit to a strict “no alcohol” policy during the summer, even on their time off. It’s part of our counselors’ demonstrated commitment that they’re at camp for our KIDS, first and foremost, and not for some alternative reason-like partying all summer!

Camper FAQs

On most days at camp you will have activities! There are 6 activity periods in a day, so one period you might be wake boarding on lake LBJ and the next period you could be climbing the wall and flying down the zip line. We have over 40 different activities so you can try a new one each day if you want too! To learn more about the activities we offer click here.

Once a week we have All Camp Super Camp Fun Day where instead of going to 6 different activities you can go to any open activity you want at any time! We also have our Trojan Spartan Games once a week, where all of camp is divided into two teams that compete in various games.

Close

Evening activities are tons of fun! From dances to movie night to big group games and parties to our Fishin’ Nights, evening activities are a great way to end the day. To finish out each day, the boys at camp get together at the Coliseum and the girls at camp at the Forum for our Torchlight ceremony. Torchlight is a time of singing, skits and generally acting goofy. At every Torchlight we honor the Torchlighter of the Day, the outstanding camper at camp. It’s the highest honor you can earn at Camp Champions.

Close

Cabins are the best part of camp! Have you ever been on a really fun sleep over with one of your best friends? Being in a cabin is basically like that, but with 11 of your best friends for longer!

Each cabin has anywhere from 8-12 campers that are the same age and 2-3 counselors. Everybody will have a trunk to keep their stuff in, a top or bottom bunk to make their own, and a personal space in front of their bunk. There’s 2 fans in each cabin to keep it cool, and a space in the middle to play games(cards, cabin pickleball, and four-square to name a few) or just hang out with your cabin mates.

Close

We can’t tell you who your counselors will be before you get to camp, but we can tell you that we travel all over the world and look far and wide to find counselors who want to spend their summer at camp because they get to hang out with kids like you! They are college-aged individuals who are excited, fun, and want to get to know you. It’s like having a cool older brother or sister take care of you!

Close

“I have responsibilities at camp?” you may be asking yourself, and the answer is yes, yes you do! Here at camp we ask all of our campers to do certain tasks so that everything can run smoothly. These tasks include picking up after yourself at meal times, cleaning up your stuff in the cabin for inspection, showing up and participating in all activities, and following all the rules we have here at camp.

Close

You’ll love the food at camp! Is it just like home cooking? Well, maybe not quite like home, but close. From things like waffles, eggs, pancakes at breakfast to foods like pizza, chicken fingers, corn dogs and spaghetti at lunch and dinner. We always offer fresh fruit, and a salad bar at lunch and dinner. And if you don’t like what we’re serving at the Fillin’ Station at a meal, we always have peanut butter & jelly available!

Close

If you have any problem of any type at camp, you need to talk to your counselors. They are trained to handle difficult situations and are there because they want to help you. If you feel uncomfortable talking to your counselors about an issue you are having at camp(or outside of camp) then you can always talk to a division leader or a director and they will be there to help you as well. If we don’t know you are struggling with something, we can’t fix it!

Close

Older campers (Lettermen and Midis) get to choose their activities on a daily basis, selecting from various activities within the Fine Arts, Sports and Outdoors departments. We assign specific times for water skiing, free swim, sail, pool play, and other activities.

Younger campers, the Rookie and Mini divisions, do activities with their cabins in a pre-set schedule.

Close

You do have to be a certain age to do certain activities. You cannot do Go-karts, Riflery, the Screamer, the 2nd level and up on the Pirate Ship, or the Zip-line at the wall if you haven’t finished 4th grade by the time camp comes around. Instead of Riflery our younger campers get to do BB’s, which is a good way to practice for when they get older!

Close

No. You cannot bring ANY electronics (iPads, iTouches, computers, electronic gaming systems, Kindles, walkie-talkies, etc.), cell phones, digital cameras, money, food (no candy, gum, etc.), or any safety hazards (use common sense for any other questionable items such as pocket knives, fireworks or other items that are a potential safety risk).

The one exception is that you can bring personal music systems, such as an mp3 player and iPods with no video capability. Keep in mind we are not responsible for lost, damaged or stolen electronic equipment.

Thank you!

Close

We group cabins by the ages and grades of the campers. You may request 1 cabin mate, and we will do our best to meet your request. If the cabin mate you request is two or three grades ahead of you, we won’t be able to put you together—the age difference is just too great. But if the friend you come with is about the same age, and you both request to be together, you’ll live in the same cabin!

Close

Yes of course! Everybody is a little nervous about coming to camp, even returners. Once you get to camp you will realize that everyone wants you to feel comfortable and have a good time and your nervousness will melt away. Your cabin mates, counselors, division leaders and directors are all on your team and ready to make you feel at home at a moment’s notice.
