Big Days

Opening Day

We can hardly wait! The time that we have been planning and preparing for all year long has finally arrived!

Our gates open promptly at 4:00pm
4:00-4:45 Girls check-in*
4:45-5:30 Boys check-in*
6:00 Parents must leave so camp can begin

During check-in you will find out your camper’s cabin, turn in any medication to the nurses and receive a health screening, and pick up pre-orders.

*Any families (or car pools) with both girls and boys may check in during either time interval

Opening Day Transportation

Charter buses run from Austin, Dallas and Houston to Camp. Fee for the bus is $100.00 for all cities, except Austin. The bus fee from Austin is $50.00. Because buses have a limited capacity, service is offered on a first-come, first-served basis.

Buses are scheduled to arrive at Camp on Opening Day, between 3:00 and 4:00 PM. Charter buses are not offered for the trip home. It is best for parents to be present for Closing Day activities.
