A Day in the Life of a Camp
Cullen Camper

The Typical Day at YMCA Camp Cullen

A camper’s day is full of intentional design. Each element, each hour, serves a purpose. Meals fuel the fun, the fun drives learning and skill development and the learning builds character, providing the opportunity to reflect and grow. From rising in the morning, to closing their eyes at night, your camper is taken on a journey.

Daily Activities Morning

Daily Activities – Morning

Rise and ShineA cabin will rise with the sun and get ready for their camp day at around 7 am. During this time, they’ll listen to a podcast that details the activities and opportunities ahead of them, get fitted in all the right gear and head out the door ready for another day of adventure!

BreakfastA hot, nutritious breakfast fuels your camper for their day of fun. Providing a wide array of options from the main meal, to cereal bar and vegetarian options, with all dietary requirements taken care of, we’ll set your camper up for success.

Morning Meeting & Flag RaisingMorning meeting gets the body limbered up, the excitement pumping, the mind grounded and the expectations set for the day. We pay respect to the flag and then get ready to make the most of the day.

Land Cluster Activities Each day, our campers will have the opportunity to pick from our wide variety of land activities to participate in like Arts, Science, High Adventure, Target Sports, Athletic Sports, and more!

Aquatics Cluster ActivitiesEach day our campers will be able to splash and play in the water. They’ll be able to pick between our Pool and Waterfront clusters with choices like Banana Boating, Sailing, Paddlesports, Wet Willie, pool time and more!

Equestrian ActivitiesWe want every camper to have the opportunity to visit the Equestrian center! Our younger campers will have a scheduled cabin activity to ensure they get to visit while our older campers will be able to sign up throughout the week.

Clubs – After picking their top 3 choices for their club on Sunday, campers will be given their club and are able to attend their club every morning. They will gain a deeper understanding of the skills needed in the activity while building strong relationships with the other campers in the club!

LunchA long morning having fun will build an appetite for any camper. From the main meal, to sandwich bar, salad bar and vegetarian options, we’ll refill the stomach and make the body ready for more fun in the afternoon.

Daily Activities – Afternoon/Evening

SiestaEveryone enjoys a nap. To beat the heat and rest before an afternoon of adventure, the campers go to their cabin to spend a precious few minutes of recovery and relaxation.

Dinner Dinner wraps up the meals for the day, with the same structure of choice in place. Meal times at Camp Cullen are more than just the food. They are an EXPERIENCE. Cheers, songs, dance parties and competitions all bring the fun alongside the food.

Cabin Activities The cabin group is a close group, full of potential new lifelong friendships. Each day we find time for the cabin to laugh and play together through challenges that bond them as a team.

Evening Program – Evening Program is something a little different every day. At the start of the week, these programs are dedicated to the weekly theme, and as the week progresses, they end in campfires, dance parties, ice cream, cabin time, talent shows and more.

Lights Out A good night’s rest fuels a successful day of adventures. We get the kids in bed early and most will be asleep before their head hits the pillow.
