Go On A Family Adventure


Steve, Miriam and Scotty Spears had a great time doing high adventure activities and spending time together at family camp at YMCA Camp Cullen.

Imagine a weekend where you can let your kids can go horseback riding, fly through the trees on a zip line, scale up a climbing tower and sing campfire songs. Now imagine doing this as an adventure with the whole family.

That’s what the Spears family did on their recent family weekend camping trip to YMCA Camp Cullen in nearby Trinity, Texas.

“It’s nice to come to a place like this and spend time (together) as a family,” said Steve Spears. “The staff does a really good job of getting everybody involved. The food was good, and the activities were well planned out.”


Families participate in all kinds of fun games led by camp counselors.

Other family camp activities include:
• Riding a giant swing  known as “The Screamer”
• Participating in arts and crafts
• Playing family games
• Grilling s’mores around a campfire

Fun, energetic camp counselors help engage each family and ensure everyone has a great time. And after the families are done having fun, they can rest peacefully in private cabins complete with bunk beds, air conditioning, and private bathrooms.

Families who spend time at Camp Cullen bond while taking part together in the day’s events. Steve and his wife, Miriam, saw their son, Scotty, make friends with other kids and participate in activities he had never done before.

“I was scared before I went on the zip line, but I did it,” Scotty, 9, said. “It was my favorite part. It was so fun.”

YMCA Camp Cullen offers themed family camps once a month, with the next session offered February 14-16 for Valentine’s Day.

Other upcoming Family Camp dates and themes are:
• March 7-10, Mardis Gras
• March 12-15, St. Patrick’s Day
• April 11-13, Family Camp
• May 9-11, Mother’s Day

These kids got a real thrill from going tubing on Lake Livingston.

YMCA Camp Cullen is primarily a summer overnight camp, which offers week-long sessions for kids ages 7-16 from June through August. Activities include water sports, ropes courses, a zip line, horseback riding, and more.
