Camp Travis Opening & Closing

Opening Day

4:00pm - 5:15pm:  Gate is open to check in your camper!  

Please expect to be in your car 15 to 20 minutes AFTER passing the front gate.  A Director will have the opportunity to talk to each family before being directed to The Circle to unload your camper's luggage. Please note: This will be your time to say good-bye to your camper.  Why?  Because they will get out and meet their Coach when their luggage is unloaded from the car.  But don't fret parents ... you will have a chance to park the car and come to The Courthouse to visit the Camp Store, put money on your camper's store card and drop off mail.  You will also be able to visit the Camp Nurse at Doc Holiday's if your camper has medicine to be dropped off.

While you are making your last stops, your camper will be busy meeting their new cabin mates in The Circle.  You are welcome to give them one last hug before you head back home.

5:14pm: First camper activity!

Camp Travis address: 2800 CR 414, Spicewood, Texas 78669 (Get Driving Directions)
