Summer Camps In East Texas

Spend a warm summer at camp in Texas.

Campers from across the country travel to east Texas to enjoy a number of the area’s different camps. The warm Texas weather makes the state an ideal summer camp location, and most of the eastern Texas camps offer an extensive variety of outdoor activities for children of all ages throughout the summer months.

Camp Olympia

Located on Lake Livingston in Trinity, Texas, Camp Olympia was founded in 1968 by two University of Texas All-American football players. Today, the camp is open to boys and girls ages 7 to 16. Each camper is able to choose from 35 different activities in which to participate during their time at camp; activities include aerobics, canoeing, DVD production, SCUBA, track and field and weightlifting. Each activity class is taught by a camp counselor who is skilled in that which he is teaching. Starting in May and ending in August, Camp Olympia offers several different two and three week camp sessions. Registration is available online through the Camp Olympia website.
