Why Camp Olympia
Why Camp Olympia is the Best Texas Summer Camp
Why Camp Olympia, and what sets Camp Olympia apart from other camps?
Camp Olympia Facebook Fans, parents, kids and teens alike, consistently rank Camp Olympia number one with five-stars (excellent) for their experience.
The beauty of our location and the ability to choose from over 40+ FUN activities make us special, but we feel it is the important intangibles… Experienced Leadership, Staff Hiring and Training Practices, and our excellent Safety Record that clearly distinguishes us as one of the premier summer camps for kids in America.
For over 45 summers, Camp Olympia has given campers a fun, caring environment, where they can grow in the body, mind and spirit. Though rich in tradition, each year Olympia continues to enhance its facilities and program, including recent additions of the largest cluster of cabins ever built at Olympia plus new, FUN features added to the waterfront, pool and challenge course. It is this unique combination, history and experience along with the new and exciting, that keeps campers (and counselors!) returning year-after-year and sets Camp Olympia apart.
Nestled in the Piney Woods of East Texas, right on the shores of Lake Livingston, Camp Olympia has the perfect location for fun and adventure. The beautiful trees provide lots of shade for many of our activities. Our pool and waterfront gives campers the chance to explore many of their favorite water sports. Campers prior to arriving to camp, rank their favorite activities from the over 40 activity choices. We then provide each camper with an individualized activity schedule at camp so they get to do the activities that interest them!
Our cabins hold between 14-20 people and all cabins and bathrooms are air-conditioned at Camp Olympia! Campers are placed in cabins by age and gender, with certain programs and activities designed for our Girls Camp campers and for our Boys Camp campers. Our counselors live in the cabins, where we strive to maintain a 1:4 counselor to camper ratio in each cabin.
If you live within driving distance to camp, we encourage you to schedule a Camp Tour so you can get to know us, see our facility, and learn why Camp Olympia is the kids summer camp that both you and your kid select this summer!
