Texas Summer Camps for Boys and Girls

Texas Camps

Summer Camps in Texas

As one of the first stops in the American frontier, where the stars at night are big and bright, Texas was practically made for camping. The Old West spirit lives on in its scenery and values today, but the Lone Star State has also grown into a hotbed of cultural diversity, creative expression, and technical innovation.

The history, geography, and endlessly varied learning opportunities make Texas an ideal setting for summer camp. Read on to learn more about the many different options for summer camps for kids and teens in Texas.

The Texas Landscape

Texas is the largest of the contiguous United States, covering an expanse that includes a broad array of geographical features and environments. With the West Texas plains, the beaches along the Gulf Coast, the many lakes and rivers, and Hill Country, different summer camps throughout Texas can specialize in all kinds of outdoor activities, from hiking and wilderness trips to kayaking and sailing.

Texas is just as renowned for its urban centers as its open skies. Three of the country’s ten most populated cities call Texas home (Houston, San Antonio, and Dallas), and its capital, Austin, is a hub for musicians, filmmakers, and tech startups. Kids with an interest in computers, engineering, and the creative arts will love attending camp near one of these Southwestern metropolises.

Camp Programs

You’ll find the best Texas summer camp for your family in our directory, no matter what your needs and preferences are. If you’re local, your children can split time between staying and home and participating in day camp activities, but they’ll get the fullest experience at one of the many overnight summer camps in Texas. Residential camps also give travelers the opportunity to explore the state.

There are CatholicChristian, and other religious camps in Texas for families who wish to add faith-based instruction to their summer activities. If your kids are involved with an organization, such as the Boy ScoutsGirl Scouts, or 4-H, they can attend a related camp to bond with new members of their community.

Search for Texas Summer Camps

Scroll through our directory to learn more about the numerous summer camps operating in Texas this year. Clicking on an entry will take you to the camp’s website, where you can learn more about the program, the activities available, and its exact location. The counselors look forward to saying howdy when the season starts!
