The best summer day camps in the Hill Country are at Cordillera Ranch! Our day camps offer something for every child no matter what their interests are. From art to horses, golf and tennis, to our specialty camps like Harry Potter camp, Science camp and Outdoor Pursuits camp, our focus is on getting kids excited about learning and enjoying the different activities found at The Ranch.

Camp options depend on the child’s age and what activities they are interested in. Our campers will get to enjoy many of the outdoor amenities found at The Ranch including Swede Creek, the Guadalupe River and the Equestrian Center. 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.

We offer high quality instruction and supervision in a fun atmosphere. Our key staff are Accredited Camp Directors with the American Camping Association and all of our summer camp staff receive thorough training.

Most of our camps are offered Tuesday through Friday from June 7 through August 19. While the majority of our camps are half-day, there are a few full-day camps for the older kids. For those kids who are “too old” for camp, we offer a “Counselor-in-Training” or a “Wrangler-in-Training” program at the Tennis Center or the Equestrian Center.

Our primary goal at camp is to have kids learn to enjoy the many activities we offer at The Clubs of Cordillera Ranch. We also want to see every child at Cordillera Ranch learn to swim. When our campers get home at the end of the day, they’ll be dirty, hungry and tired from a full day of activity. Camp participation has a lot of benefits including staying physically active, socializing and learning new skills, but when it comes down to it, camp is just plain fun.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions about any of our camps.
