Summer Day Camps at Cordillera Ranch

By Shane Reynolds  ::  Photography by Kelsey Grudle

Choose your adventure! A safe and fun-filled experience for every boy and girl. Camps keep kids active, learning, growing and having fun!

The Clubs’ Summer Day Camp program offers something for everyone. We focus on getting kids excited about being in the Guadalupe River, the parks and simply experiencing nature. Instead of watching movies or sitting in front of a computer screen, kids are tromping through the creek, playing games, learning to ride horses, and identifying insects and plant species.

Our primary goal at camp is to encourage kids to experience the many outdoor activities at The Club. Campers will learn about the environment and conservation on the Ranch, and our summer camp staff strives for kids to enjoy the healthy, physical benefits of experiencing the breeze, the sunlight and the sounds of being outdoors. When the kids get home after camp, they’re dirty, hungry and tired from a full day of activity. But aside from the benefits of getting out into nature, staying physically active, socializing and learning new skills, when it comes down to it, camp is just plain fun.
