Summer Day Camps at Cordillera Ranch

Choose your adventure! A safe and fun-filled experience for every boy and girl.

It’s time to start planning for the summer to keep all of the kids active, learning to swim and keeping them playing outside and having fun.

Enter summer camps at Cordillera Ranch, the time-tested alternative to boring days around the house. Our day camps at Cordillera Ranch focus on getting kids outdoors, learning to enjoy the many different activities found on the ranch. We focus on getting kids excited about being in the Guadalupe River, into the many parks and experiencing nature, 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.

Last summer our Learn to Swim program experienced tremendous growth and we are excited to have Natalie Sales returning to teach all the kids how to swim. Our priority is getting kids comfortable and learning to be proficient swimmers for our aquatics program during the summer.

Our primary goal at camp is to have kids learn to enjoy the many outdoor activities we offer at the Club. Our campers will 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 summer camp staff strives to have kids enjoy the physical and health benefits of experiencing the breeze, the sunlight and the sounds of being outdoors. But aside from all 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. Our key staff are Accredited Camp Directors with the American Camping Association and all of our summer camp staff receives thorough training.
