No matter what your child’s interests may be, YMCA Camp Cullen has the perfect option for you. Our specialty camps help kids strengthen their skills, discover new talents and develop confidence in their own potential. Each specialty track focuses on a specific activity and helps your child learn and develop skills related to their interest. Part of each day will consist of activities that relate to a specific theme, while other times will be spent doing traditional camp activities like swimming, games, art and more. Specialty summer camps are ideal for campers who know exactly what they want from their camp experience, whether its horses or to be out on the water. If you’re hoping to bring these experiences into your organization, we also have retreats available.
At younger ages, campers can often be discovering so many new opportunities in the world around them and we recommend our traditional camp experience for those campers. They will be introduced to everything camp has to offer and discover new passions and interests along the way. For some campers, they have been on that journey, and they know exactly what they like. They may never be happier than when they are sitting on the back of a horse or surfing the lake on a wakeboard. Our specialty camps are built for these campers!
We also know that teens can begin to think that they might be too cool for camp. Nothing could be further from the truth! Camp just changes right alongside them. The experience changes, and keeps them interested, empowered and growing. Longer camps, deeper relationships, changing focus and a transition that matches their own, give our Cullen teens the perfect summer experience.
