Activities at Summer Camp
Campers will have the opportunity to utilize the amazing Texas Tech Recreational facilities. They will enjoy activities administered by trained Counselors. Each session may include activities such as archery, rock climbing, team sports, cooperative games, swimming lessons and other water activities. Formal swim lessons will be taught by Red Cross certified swim instructors and a snack will be provided each day. Children should arrive each day ready for swim lessons and have appropriate attire to change into after swimming (i.e. towel, sneakers, athletic attire, sunscreen and bug spray). In case of inclement weather, camp will continue.
Camp activities will include:
- Rock Climbing
- Team Sports
- Group Games
- Swimming Lessons (Sessions 1-3)
- Indoor and Outdoor activities
- And many, many more!

Activities at Senior Camp (Session 4 Only)
Our fourth session of Summer Camp is a one-week session designed for older campers. The session runs from 8:00 AM to Noon the week of July 22nd through July 26th. Senior Camp is open to both girls and boys between the ages of 12 and 15, and the session costs $60. A camp day begins with open swimming and aquatic activities at the Leisure Pool and continues with unique recreation opportunities most campers have likely never experienced. We may spend time Canoeing in the pool, practicing our Climbing and Belaying techniques on the Rock Wall, attempting outdoor Archery, playing a game of Softball, trying out unique sports like Lacrosse or Rugby, or learning to Fence!
This camp does not play competitive sports like baseball or basketball, and it is not a goal of the camp to improve camper skill or technique for any sporting event or competition.
Senior Camp is limited to the first 24 participants!
