Day Camp in Huntsville is for kids from the greater Houston area. They get picked up on our buses and spend the day at camp!

As counselors, Summer Staff get to have a blast by leading songs and skits, playing group games and camp activities, and pouring into kids lives by being great role models!

Summer Staff also pitch in and help in Guest Services, where they help keep camp clean and campers happy! From housekeeping to kitchen cleaning to activity setup, Summer Staff serve our guests alongside the rest of our staff team in order to provide an amazing environment for our campers.
