Dates, Rates and Themes

Make your camper’s stay memorable with camp themes.

All camp sessions begin on Sundays and end on Fridays. Most camp sessions are one week, with a two-week option available for Teen Adventure and Teen Leadership Camps.

Unable to pick up your camper on Friday night due to travel time or schedules? No problem! You have the option for your camper to stay at camp Friday night for an additional fee. Families also have an option to register for our holdover package that covers your campers stay at camp for the entire weekend between sessions. This unique new experience includes a Friday night pool party, an off camp trip on Saturday and Sunday morning activities before the next session of camp begins.

Themes help make your camper’s stay even more memorable with activities centered around buried treasure, super heroes, and more! Teen adventure camps offer a great alternative to our more seasoned campers, with a bit more thrill! And leadership camps are a wonderful option for teens looking to grow and boost their resume or something to add to college applications.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, they can stay for multiple weeks at camp. Nothing thrills us more than when campers want to stay more than one week because we know they love camp as much as we do! If you choose to have your camper stay, they are able to participate in camp activities on Saturday and Sunday and have the option to do laundry that is on-site in their cabin. Meals are also provided on both days during the camp transition.

Campers are assigned to cabins strictly according to age, gender and space. They also must be within two years of each other in age. We will try to honor cabin requests but cannot make any guarantees. Campers wishing to share the same cabin need to request each other during the registration process.

No. Full payment is due two weeks prior to the start of your camp week. You may also use our convenient payment plan and pay monthly via a credit card and/or bank draft. Failure to complete payment will result in a cancelation of the registration and the advancement of another camper from the waiting list.

Yes, we encourage your child to bring items related to the theme of the week to make it fun and get them excited about the week ahead! Please remember to label all clothing and items brought to camp with their first and last name and do not bring anything valuable. Also remember while it’s fun to bring theme-related items, try and keep the packing list on the light side.

Should it be necessary for you to change or cancel your child’s session, you must contact YMCA Camp Cullen at least two weeks prior to the beginning of the session. Changes will be made based on availability. Your registration must be canceled in writing (email) by Friday prior to check-in day to be refunded.
