Camp Olympia HistoryHere’s a cause for celebration – Camp Olympia is set to open its gates on their 45th summer of camp! That’s a lot of history, a lot of memories and three generations of families that have been impacted.

University of Texas All-American football players, Chris Gilbert and Corby Robertson, Jr, established Camp Olympia in 1968 with a dream to build the best camp in the world. Their commitment to excellence in all that they do reflects directly on the growth and development of what has become a premier camping facility and program that is second to none.

In its first year of operation, Camp Olympia – an all boys camp – shared the summer with 86 boys. The activity choice list was quite extensive for the time and included: football, basketball, baseball, swimming, horseback, waterskiing, sailing, canoeing, archery, photography, riflery, golf, arts & crafts, ecology and tennis. The facility was much more simple back then, and included 8 cabins, a dining facility, open air gym, fields and a pool.

In 1970, Camp Olympia underwent many changes including the admission of girls to the summer program. The addition of girl campers Camp Olympia Historycreated a need for new activities and facility upgrades to accommodate the needs of boys and girls. With these changes, camp began to flourish and become what it is today.

As Camp Olympia continues to establish itself as a summertime tradition for families, we have been able to maintain the favorite traditions of camp while adding new programs and activities to stay relevant to a new generation of campers. Traditional “camp” activities like horseback, canoeing, archery, and arts & crafts, are among the 40+ activities offered to campers, while ‘cutting edge’ activities such as wakeboarding, kayaking, and DVD production have been added to appeal to new generations.

Age-old camp programs such as the always-spirited Spartan/Athenian Competition, the tried and true Camp Olympia Rodeo, and the big top Carnival have solidified their place among the favorites. The traditional Camp Olympia Talent Show is sure to showcase the next star and Blue Dolphin and Little Minnow have continued to make their summer time presence at Water Carnival. New programs such as paint party, themed dances and night games keep campers on their toes and anticipating what will be next.

Camp Olympia HistoryCamp Olympia has grown to become a global camp with children from all over the world joining Texas kids for an exciting and positive camping experience. There are no other summer camping facilities or programs that can match the diversity and excellence found at Camp Olympia.

Both Chris and Corby are pleased with the history of camp, and they continue to look to the future and are committed to seeing that Camp Olympia remains a place where children can grow in body, mind and spirit.

Join Camp Olympia this summer as we ‘Dream Big’ and celebrate 45 years of fun, friends and memories!

Summer is around the corner and a big, but super fun task is ahead of you – getting everything packed for summer camp! Packing for camp marks the beginning of an exciting journey for your campers. Get them involved and excited for summer camp by including them in the packing process!

Below are simple guidelines and helpful tips that make packing an enjoyable process.

General Tips:

  • Footlockers - Footlockers and trunks are to be no more than 14 inches tall in order to fit underneath the camper’s bed. If you are looking to purchase a trunk for your camper we recommend going through Kangaroo Cases or C&N Footlockers. If ordering through C&N Footlockers make sure to use this promotional code: play6730L.Summer Camp Trunk
  • Packing List – Click here to access the Camp Olympia Packing List to prepare for camp. This is a recommended minimum needs list. You know your child best. Feel free to pack in a way that meets his/her needs!
  • Start Packing Early – Start packing early to avoid the last minute shopping trips or the stressful hunt to find that favorite t-shirt. Start the packing process by creating an initial inventory of the items you have at home and then fill in the missing items with new purchases. Starting early will allow you to make sure you have packed everything that is needed in plenty of time.
  • Label EVERYTHING – Label EVERYTHING (and we really mean everything) that your camper brings to camp. One look at the daily lost and found bin, and you will see why labeling is so important! Many of our campers have the same initials, so labeling with the First and Last name is often the best way to ensure items return back to your camper (and eventually back home). A permanent marker works well or purchase water-resistant labels with your camper’s name on it from Everything Summer Camp.

Clothes:

  • Dress Code – Pay close attention to the dress code! Policies are in place to ensure that the clothes the kids wear are appropriate for the activity and help them focus on camp and get the best experience possible.
  • Clothing – Focus less on new, stylish clothes and shoes and more on comfort. Having cool and comfortable attire is much more important.
  • Laundry – At Camp Olympia, laundry is done once during a 2-week term and twice during a 3-week term for every camper. Each cabin has a designated laundry day. On the designated day, cabins will sort their laundry according to color and material. The clothes are then picked up, washed, folded and returned to the cabin.

Toiletries:

  • Shower Caddie - Pack all items that will be taken in the bathroom in a shower caddie. This will allow your camper an easy way toShower Caddie transport items to and from the bathroom. Shower caddies can be purchased at any major retailer such as Target or Bed, Bath and Beyond.
  • Shampoo/Conditioner – 2-n-1 shampoo provides both shampoo and conditioner in the same bottle, which eliminates one more thing to pack and keep up with and makes shower time faster.

Linens:

  • Bed Sheets - Pack two sets of sheets. This will ensure that your camper always has an extra set of sheets in the event of an accident or for general changing of the sheets midway through the term.
  • Blanket - Keep in mind that the cabins can get cold in the evenings. You can either bring one thicker blanket, such as a comforter, or two lightweight blankets.
  • Additional Bunk Items - Some campers enjoy having additional bed padding and an additional pillow for extra comfort.Towels - Make sure to pack beach towels for the pool and lake activities, as well as regular bath towels for the shower. One way to do this is designate one towel color for the pool and another color for the shower.

Camp Extras:

  • Stationery and Stamps – Rest hour is a great opportunity for campers to write notes to their family members and friends. An easy way to ensure that everyone receives a handwritten letter is to pack pre-addressed and stamped envelopes along with the Spartan Athenian Tshirtsstationary.
  • Sunscreen - All sunscreen is great, but Camp Olympia recommends spray sunscreen. It is easier for the kids to apply, making them more willing to use it.
  • Notes – As you pack your camper’s items into his/her trunks and bags, hide some fun notes throughout. This is a small surprise that will brighten your camper’s day!
  • Home Away from Home - Campers love to make their bunks feel like home! We encourage pictures, stuffed animals, books, etc.
  • Spartan/Athenian Gear - Spartan/Athenian events are a big deal at Camp Olympia. Campers like to pack lots of red (Spartans) and blue (Athenians) clothing to show camp spirit. Fun items such as bandanas, face paint, and crazy socks are worn at certain Spartan/Athenian events and can be purchased through the Camp Olympia Country Store the first day of camp, during check-in or surprise your camper with a special delivery package.

Final Steps

Once the trunk has been packed and double-checked, make it off limits to your camper until it’s time for camp. The last thing you want is for your camper to rummage through and remove items before camp only to forget to put them back in.

With the trunk packed and ready to go, your camper will be counting down the days until the start of summer camp!

Camp Olympia Summer Camp“What makes us special is the signature of God on our lives.” Max Lucado

Another year is underway and as I start my 41st summer with Camp Olympia it is a blessing to know that Camp Olympia has been a part of so many young lives. Over 40,000 young men and women have passed through our gates since our first year in 1968. Through the years, I have seen many changes in our young people, fads, haircuts, and of course, the internet has changed our world. There is one thing that has never changed though and that is a child’s heart.

Warren Bennis, a pioneer in Business and Leadership Studies, said, “No leader sets out to be a leader. People set out to live their lives, expressing themselves fully. When that expression is of value, they become leaders. So the point is not to become a leader. The point is to become yourself, to use yourself completely – all of your skills, gifts, and energies – in order to make your vision manifest.”

That is what I absolutely love about Camp Olympia is that we see youth find out who they are. They begin to see the unique design that God has placed in them. They live in a community in which they form values of what is right and wrong. They learn to see the beauty in each of their cabin mates. They get to wakeup every morning surrounded by natural beauty and see the sun rise as well as see the awesome sunsets as the day ends. Campers find talents they did not know they had. They learn they can give grace, love, respect, and encouragement to others. They learn that even in discipline that there is unconditional love.

Our theme this summer is “Dream Big.” You’re invited to “Dream Big” with us and start the ground work of what God’s signature will be on your life. God Bless! Keep Him Close By!

Choosing the Best Summer CampWith summer approaching, parents look ahead with eagerness to select just the right summer camp and summer activities for their kids. With so many options available, how do parents decide what will give their kids the best summer camp experience?

Camp Olympiabelieves in the positive impact a residential camp has on children. After all, summer camp is a key part of a well-rounded education as children learn responsibility and cooperation while gaining independence and self-esteem.

At Camp Olympia, we believe the key to choosing a summer camp is not to focus solely on the fun-factor (which is important), but to dig deeper to learn how staff members are hired and trained, about the camp’s safety record and camp accreditation standards, and an experience overview of the camp’s leadership team. You should also feel welcomed to tour the camp and/or visit with staff members at a local camp event, prior to the summer.

Staff Hiring and Training

Each camp has its own procedures and standards, which are not all equal, for hiring and training staff members – from camp counselors to the camp nurse. That is why it is very important to evaluate the camp’s hiring and training process.

Here are the top 5 things to think about when evaluating the camp’s hiring and training process.

  1. How does the camp recruit their camp counselors?
  2. Does the hiring process include interviews, background checks and reference checks?
  3. Does the camp provide real-life situational training such as an onsite counselor training clinic, in addition to the camp’s policy and procedures manual?
  4. What is the ratio of staff members to campers?
  5. What type of alcohol policy is in place for the staff members?

Keep in mind that the camp’s staff will be taking care of your children, while at camp. You should be invited to ask questions, so you are comfortable with who will be interacting with your children, during summer camp.

Safety Record and Accreditation Standards

In order for camps to obtain their yearly operating license, they must meet safety standards set by the state, in Camp Olympia’s case, this is the State of Texas. Many camps find it sufficient to meet state requirements only. Other camps choose to go above and beyond state requirements and voluntarily obtain accreditation through the American Camp Association (ACA). In order to become an ACA accredited camp, the camp must meet up to 300 health and safety standards. ACA Accreditation is one of the best guarantees of professionalism in camping, and it lets you know that the camp has taken the time to insure their program and site meets the strictest codes of safety and excellence for your kids.

Camp Leadership

Camp Directors are the heartbeat of any camp, so you should become familiar with their camp leadership background and experience. So, ask:

  1. What type of experiences do the Camp Directors have in camping?
  2. What type of experience and training do the Camp Directors have in working with children?
  3. What turnover of leadership has the camp experienced?

Often times a more experienced leadership staff translates into a better summer camp experience.

Visit the Camp

Due to distance, not everyone has an opportunity to tour camp facilities, however try to schedule a tour or receive an online tour of the facilities, prior to registration. If distance does not allow for an onsite tour of the camp, ask when the photos and video of the camp facilities were taken to ensure that it properly reflects the facilities. Touring the camp allows you and your child to familiarize yourself with where your child will be sleeping, the various activity areas, and an overall layout of the land. Plus, it will allow you to meet staff members and get answers to any questions you may have.

Camp Olympia Paddle BoardingAs if 40+ activities isn’t enough to get you exited about summer camp at Camp Olympia this summer, Camp Olympia has just added another exciting activity for summer 2012…Stand Up Paddleboarding! Paddleboarding will be combined with sailing to create an unbelievable water activity that you have to try!

For those who are less familiar with this fast growing activity, Stand Up Paddleboarding is a water sport in which participants propel themselves across the lake with paddles while standing on a paddle board (it looks a lot like a wide surfboard). In other words, it’s another form of non-wave surfing! Never tried paddle boarding? Don’t worry! Camp is the perfect place to experience something new.

Check it out!
