It’s Time for Summer Camp

Day Camps at Cordillera Ranch Offer Something for Everyone

No matter where we go these days, it seems we are surrounded by technology. Toddlers are iPad-proficient and learn to count and read using LeapPads. Teens are practically required to be on social media sites to keep up with their friends. There’s hardly time anymore to interact face-to-face or get outside and just play.

Enter summer camps at Cordillera Ranch, the time-tested alternative to boring days around the house.

“Spending time outdoors is important for kids these days,” said Aubri Reed, Camp Supervisor at The Clubs of Cordillera Ranch, which offers 13 different day camp options for kids.  “We want the kids to feel safe outdoors, to understand what’s in the world around them and have a good time. Plus, they get physical fitness because they’re constantly moving around throughout the day.”

Our day camps at Cordillera Ranch focus on getting kids outdoors and learning to enjoy the many different activities found on the ranch. We focus on getting kids excited about experiencing nature and playing in the Guadalupe River and many parks, rather than simply keeping them occupied during the few months they’re not in school. Instead of watching movies or sitting in front of a computer screen, kids are tromping through the creek, playing games and learning to identify insects and plant species.

When my generation grew up, we’d play outside from after school got out ’til the street lights came on. Now it seems most kids want to be in front of a screen of some kind. Our goal at Cordillera Ranch is to have kids learn to enjoy the many outdoor activities we offer at the Club and learn about the environment on the ranch, so that when the kids get home after camp, they’re dirty, hungry and tired from a full day of activity. Our goal is to have kids enjoy the physical and health benefits of experiencing the breeze, the sunlight and the sounds of being outdoors. Besides the benefits of being out in nature, staying physically active, socializing and learning new skills, when it comes down to it, camp is just plain fun.
