All of us at Camp Aranzazu are excited that summer is around the corner, when more than 18 different groups and over 800 campers and staff join us at our 104-acre, barrier-free facility on the Gulf Coast.
The construction of a 600-foot bridge from the main are of camp to the waterfront soon will be complete, giving our campers much-awaited access to our 27 acres of waterfront and wetlands. Click here to see photos.
We have lots of new activities for our campers to enjoy, including:
- Birdwatching and identification in the new bird blind built by architecture students from the University of Texas
- Nature painting and photography
- Cooking classes and new art activities in the Sarofim Creative Arts Center kitchen
- Seining and beachcombing
- A new addition to our Ropes Challenge Course
- And much more!
We now have 135 beds and the most beautiful camp facility in Texas, and the only one on the Gulf Coast.
We are a year-round camp and are booking now for Fall 2017 and Spring 2018. Please email me if you are interested in booking a group or coming to see the facilities. We’d love to have you!
