Camp Olympia


Welcome to Camp Olympia

Why we love it

Good to know


Established in 1968, Camp Olympia is a private, overnight Texas Summer Camp for boys and girls ages 6-16. It is a classic kids summer camp in Texas, offering two-week and three-week sessions for 7-16 year old campers and one-week sessions for 6-9 year old campers. Our beautiful location on Lake Livingston in Trinity, Texas is the perfect setting for FUN, SUN, and ADVENTURE.

Camp Olympia blends its rich 45+ year camping history and experience with its continual growth and exciting additions, making it the best Texas summer camp – like no other.

Each Camp Olympia camper selects from over 40 adventure camp activities for a truly individualized summer camp experience, ranging from water skiing to golf to horseback riding, so campers get to CHOOSE the activities that interest them.

Most importantly, Camp Olympia builds character and values in its campers. It is a key component to a well-rounded education as children learn responsibility and cooperation while gaining independence and confidence.

Our dynamic group of college counselors serves as positive role models for your child, and we strive to keep a counselor to camper ratio of 1 : 4 in each cabin. We are accredited by the American Camping Association, because we know that the safety of your child is of the utmost importance.


Camp Olympia has outstanding facilities, including a swimming pool, a challenge course, as well as fields and courts for many activities. While most of the activities take place on a 101-acre location, camp has access to hundreds of additional acres of private land. We improve the facility each year with additions and enhancements so campers are always in for a treat when they return. Additions within the last 5 years include our new climbing wall at our swimming pool, new lakeside Olympia theater that is perfect for Talent Show, New Cluster of Cabins (our largest cluster of cabins ever!), a 2-Person Zip Line at the Challenge Course, a a Water Balloon Battle Station at the pool, and Aqua Inflatables for both the pool and waterfront! Camp just keeps getting better and better!!!

While Olympia is located on the breezy shores of Lake Livingston, it does get warm in Texas during the summer. Unlike most of the other camps in Texas, all of the cabins, bathrooms, our dining hall, and many of the enclosed areas are air-conditioned. Air-conditioned cabins make sleeping at night much more comfortable.

At Camp Olympia, we’re having fun from morning to night! Days are filled with camp activities that campers love because at Camp Olympia, campers get to choose activities! Our two-week and three-week campers choose from over 45 different daily activities ranging from wakeboarding to golf to hoardback riding! Our one-week SPARK campers choose from 18 daily activities that are designed for their age group.

Camp Olympia’s 45+ Activites are categorized into 6 main groups: sports, horseback, outdoor adventure, water fun, arts, and recreational hobbies.

Prior to arriving at camp, campers rank their favorite activities and from those rankings, we develop an INDIVIDUALIZED CAMP ACTIVITY SCHEDULE for each camper. This guarantees that campers get to DO THE THINGS THEY ALREADY LOVE plus the opportunity to try something new and exciting.

When campers arrive at camp, they receive their camp activity schedule, which contains 40-minute activity periods. Each activity is taught by counselors that not only focus on teaching these activity skills but teaching them in a fun way.

    Camp Olympia is making a huge impact on its camper’s lives! The sta is second to none – just an outstanding eort and commitment. I played 9 holes with my son last night. The improvement in his game from 3 weeks ago is amazing. He is very confident in the changes he has made, has more extension and power in the new swing, and he made several beautiful pars and had a couple of legitimate birdie putts (playing from the women’s tees)! I am so pleased for him, and credit to the Jr. Golf Academy!!

    Thank you so much for all your hard work in making his camp experience so wonderful. I must add that my simple words of thank you certainly do not adequately express my deep appreciation and gratitude to y’all and all that you do. It’s such a comfort as a parent to continuously send my kids to Camp O each year and know that they will be safe and have a rewarding and memorable time. Thank you for being Camp O’s directors and all that y’all do! We look forward to seeing y’all again next year!

    I just wanted to thank you all so much for a great term 4. We all appreciate the light-hearted, nurturing atmosphere at camp and the quality of the counselors that you put together each year who do such an amazing job accompanying them at camp. I also wanted to let you know how reassuring the photos were each day. The volume of photos made sure that we saw a picture of each child at least once a day

    We are so lucky to have found Camp O. There’s no other camp like it! It’s so wonderful to know you are sending your kids to a place that really understands kids, has their best interests at heart, and provides them with a fun and growing experience. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    I just want to say THANK YOU for providing my children with all the wonderful things that you do. The di�fference all the counselors make in their lives…being the role models that sometimes even a parent can’t fill. They view them all as people they want to be like…fun, positive, grounded, fair, loving, friendly, encouraging, helpful, respectful …I could go on. Both of my sons talked about the CLP program…and someday becoming counselors themselves! I know it’s a lot of work for everyone, but again, the impact on their lives is enormous. Also, the friends that they have made are also unlike most friends they have in their day to day life. I think of it as pure friendships. Not encumbered by outside influences – school, appearance, abilities. People who touch our lives and make a di�fference…help us to find the people we are capable of becoming. The activities, the food, the beautiful camp grounds are incredible, but it’s all of you, the people that make a diff�erence. I am blessed that they have been able to have this experience.
