Overnight Camps


Being a part of Overnight Camp is more than just an adventure; it’s a life experience. The opportunity to climb to new heights, paddle a river, fly through the air, and do it all with your new best friends is unlike any adventure.

Now, more than ever, our kids need camp. Camp allows our kids to build real friendships, gain confidence, become more independent, and dream big. This is the real power of Kidventure Overnight Camp. Join Kidventure for the summer of 2024.


Kidventure provides three overnight camp programs. Select the camp for your child below and learn more!

Safari Camp Details


Ages 8-12 / 9 Days

Like our traditional Safari Camp, we only take 50 kids, campers operate in one of our four tribes, and activities are a bit more ‘high adventure’. In addition to the activities, the session is also longer at 9 days affording our campers additional opportunities not experienced at Safari.

Once you’ve been a Kidventure camper, your life is never quite the same. You’ve had fun and adventure you may have never thought possible. You’ve tried new things and grown to know yourself better. You’ve built strong relationships with your counselors and fellow campers. From all that, you’ve gained skills and created memories that you carry with you for the rest of your life. But most of all, you just can’t wait to do it all again.

For 30 years, Kidventure’s Overnight Camp has been an experience like none other. Now, we’ve expanded our offerings serving our families and their kids from ages 8 to 16. Because the greatest lessons we learn at overnight camp are the ones we take with us for the rest of our lives.

Overnight Camp FAQs

At Kidventure, we focus on 4 Cornerstones to help promote a well-rounded camper: Creativity, Exploration, Physical Activity, and Reflection. Every activity, game, and event we schedule focuses on one or more of these areas. Depending on the program, you can expect your camper to rotate between activities every 30-45 minutes and engage in age-appropriate activities, including centers, art, camp games, and self-reflection. Throughout the week, LEADS will participate in archery tag, rock climbing, service projects, and field trips; Explorers will participate in archery tag, team building activities, rock climbing, and field trips; and Discoverers will participate in archery tag, rock climbing, and KV Live (where we bring the field trip to the site!).

Safari is a shorter term consisting of six days. Quest is longer at nine days. Both are designed for campers ages 8-12 and both have a similar format and objective. Quest involves a little more ‘high adventure’ than Safari and takes place at our camp in Rocksprings. Safari takes place at Mo-Ranch.

For Safari, campers stay in boy’s or girl’s dorms. These dorms are air-conditioned, bunk bed style lodging. Restroom and Shower facilities are located within the dorms. In addition, all bedding and bath towels are provided at Safari. For Quest and Echo, campers stay in separate boys and girls’ air-conditioned cabins with restroom and shower facilities. Campers must bring their own bedding for Quest and Echo.

Tribes are coed. For Safari and Quest, we divide our campers into four tribes, (Bear, Eagle, Buffalo, and Turtle). These tribes are by age and consist of boys and girls. Tribes are a function of our activities during the day and are separate from cabin assignments. Echo has two tribes, Donoma: Boys and Girls Ages 13-14, and Miakoda: Boys and Girls Ages 15-16.

Yes. As part of your Camp Packet, you will receive May, you will get the address where mail can be sent. Mail sometimes moves slowly, so please send it early enough. We can also take mail with us and pass it out per your instructions!

Transportation takes place from two drop-off/pick-up locations (Houston and Austin). We have campers coming to camp from many locations. Austin and Houston have proven optimal for all kids traveling to camp.

Camp is about getting away from home and creating a new experience that fosters independence and confidence. Unless there is sickness or injury, we don’t call home. We do communicate each evening with a nightly email wrapping up our day and we will post images and videos to the Camp App.

Camp is about getting away and creating valuable relationships and memories. Mobile devices are definitely not allowed because of this reason.

Yes, virtually! We host a Camp Meet and Greet each summer prior to Overnight Camp beginning. It is a Google Meet where campers, parents, and staff all get together online to talk about camp, tell stories, answer questions, and just meet one another. That date for 2023 is June 21st in the evening. A formal invitation will be sent to you with your Camp Packet in May.

On your registration form, there are fields for food allergies. With this information, we will work with you and our chef to create a meal plan that provides your camper with great-tasting food that is appropriate based on their allergies. This includes dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan, and vegetarian.

Prior to camp, we will reach out to you to discuss the plan for your child’s medical condition. This might include a medicine dosage schedule or anything else we will need to plan for or scale for. We ask that you be specific in your registration form and outline any conditions that we need to be aware of.
