Texas Overnight Camps
IT IS WITH SAD HEARTS…
…that we notify everyone that all Overnight Camp Sessions for 2020 have been officially cancelled. After consulting with our medical professionals, the Texas Department of Health Services, the CDC, and many of you, we have made the very difficult decision to cancel all Overnight Camp sessions for the summer of 2020. It breaks our heart and we know that it does the same for you. Please watch a video message from our president, Mike McDonell. Below is information to help guide you with questions you have. We will of course be available to assist you too.
We will miss each and every one of our campers but we will return next year and celebrate Safari, Echo, and Apex like we have never done before!
OVERNIGHT CAMP 2020 IS CANCELLED
Yes. After much consultation with our medical professionals, the State of Texas, the CDC, and our 25 years of camp experience, we have decided not to run overnight camp. We believe that our goals for each individual child cannot be met given the restrictions and risks. Furthermore, we believe the safety of each child and their family means more to us than the continuance of camp for this season.
We live to further the lives of our campers through camp. It was after much consultation with medical professionals (including Infectious Disease Doctors close to our program), the State’s Task Force for COVID-19, and the CDC that we worked to come to a decision. But at the end of the day, it was our hearts and our mission to help improve the lives of kids that ultimately guided us to this decision.
Yes. All tuition payments minus the deposit will be refunded back to you. Please allow us two weeks to process that refund as it takes a little time. All deposits will be saved as a credit that can be applied for Overnight Camp 2021 or any other Kidventure program between now and the end of the 2021 camp season.
You automatically have a space for Overnight Camp 2021 and have priority. Specific dates and sessions will be communicated to you by the end of this summer.
Well, maybe not. We are already creatively working to seek out new opportunities for camp. Perhaps during a new school year schedule. Stay tuned. From some of life’s greatest challenges come some of life’s greatest opportunities. We will keep you posted!
Of course. Please feel free to reach out to us during regular hours. We are happy to speak with you over the phone or via email. We’re camp, we kind of love to talk!

SO MUCH MORE THAN CAMP
