On Sunday, we welcomed dozens of summer campers to the newly renovated YMCA Camp Cullen on Lake Livingston for the first time since 2010. To say we are excited, would be an understatement! Hearing the sounds of summer campers playing and laughing again is music to our ears.
Camp Cullen closed its cabin doors to campers in July 2010 after an overnight fire in the dining hall burned it to the ground. While this stopped camp memories from being made at Camp Cullen for two summers, it gave us the opportunity to rethink and rebuild camp to better serve all future generations at camp!
Thanks to generous donors, we raised more than $20 million for renovations.
Campers this summer and beyond will enjoy a state of the art dining hall, new cabins and more all closer to Lake Livingston’s waterfront.
While we added new amenities, the same classic camp feel remains.
From the Screamer swing, to archery, horseback riding, crafts and water sports, campers can expect to smile and laugh from the moment they are dropped off on Sunday until pickup on Saturday.
Though there may be some tears as campers say goodbye to all their new-found friends!
Kids, ages 7-16, who join us at camp will gain confidence, make more friends and create lasting memories. We are so excited to be a part of creating childhood summer memories again!
We still have spots available for upcoming summer camp sessions. Learn more about summer overnight camp at YMCA Camp Cullen by clicking here.
