Sleepaway camp is an iconic part of summertime in America. In fact, sleepaway camps are popping up for kids, and even adults, in every nook and cranny of the country. The travel experts at Canada’s leading online global travel agency, Flight Network, have noticed a trend in the growth of summer camps across the U.S., and it set them on a mission to find the best of the best.

Flight Network’s goal was to create a list of the camps that continue to stand above the rest, so parents and kids can make the most of their summer adventures. We were excited to find Camp Olympia on their list titled, This Summer’s 22 Most Amazing Sleepaway Camps in the U.S.

"You know what they say — everything is bigger in Texas. And in the case of Camp Olympia, an overnight hideaway located on the brisk shores of Lake Livingston, the same idea applies,” Flight Network stated.

The article went on to praise Camp Olympia for offering more than 45 activities that campers can choose to engage in during their stay, from horseback riding to water skiing and so much more. The writer mentioned our vast campgrounds of private land, which includes a swimming pool, archery field, challenge course and athletic courts for every interest. We couldn’t agree with the travel experts at Flight Network more. Camp Olympia truly does do everything the Texas way -- a whole lot bigger.
