With a maximum 8 to 1 camper to staff ratio, you can be confident that your child is fully supervised by a team of qualified professionals. We pride ourselves on hiring an all-adult staff, each of whom has a strong passion for working with children in a camp environment. It is the goal of our camp staff to make each and every camper feel welcome, safe and successful.
The hiring process for all staff includes two to three rounds of interviews, three reference checks, federal, state and local background checks and a staff orientation. Our staff members are CPR and First-Aid certified as well. You can be sure that your child’s director and counselors will be enthusiastic, creative, responsible and fun!
At Camp Hackberry, your child will experience an array of exciting activities including, but not limited to, Arts & Crafts, Fun with Foods, Team Building, Group Games, Super Science Projects, Special Events, Yoga and/or Martial Arts. In addition, the club pros will provide campers with recreational golf and tennis instruction twice a week. Campers will have approximately 1.5 hours of recreational swimming daily, with the exception of Mondays when water games will take place. The best part is that no two days at camp are exactly alike!
Weekly Theme Days
And let’s not forget about Wacky Wednesdays! Every Wednesday at camp is a wacky one with themes ranging from Camp Olympics to Barnyard Bash. Click here to check out this summer’s Wacky Wednesday Calendar!

Lunch and Snacks
A kid-friendly lunch will be provided by the club daily. If you prefer to pack your own lunch for your child, please do so in a cooler or backpack.
A snack will be served each afternoon to all campers. We encourage you to pack some extra snacks for your child as well.
Please note that we are a “nut aware” camp. We ask that you do not pack any food for your child that contains nuts. Likewise, the lunches and snacks served by the club will not contain any nuts. If your child has a food allergy and you have questions about this, please do not hesitate to contact us.
What to Wear and Pack
KECamps requires all campers to wear our official camp shirt each day of the week. Additional shirts may be purchased at camp. Campers should dress in comfortable clothes and tennis shoes.
Please do not wear flip-flops, sneakers with wheels or sandals. Children should pack a labeled swimsuit, towel, spray sunscreen and water bottle each day. You may also send your child with a labeled tennis racquet and/or golf clubs. Extra equipment will be available at camp if your child does not bring these items. On the first day of camp, your director will provide you with a schedule for golf and tennis so that you can pack accordingly. Please leave all electronic devices and cell phones at home. Having a bag or backpack to hold everything is a must!
If you know that your child will be classified as a Bogey (our term for Non-Swimmer) this summer or you prefer your child to be classified this way, please pack a flotation vest for use in the Shallow End of the pool.
How to Register
Call us at 877-671-CAMP (2267) to register over the phone.
Registration for Summer 2015 is now open and will continue until we are full. So, you may add additional weeks as the summer goes on. You must be enrolled in advance, however, in order to attend camp. We are happy to accept online registrations up until the night before the start of each week of camp, provided that space is available. Please remember that you must be a member of Hackberry Creek Country Club in order to register for camp.
Full payment is due upon registration. This includes a one-time non-refundable registration fee of $35 which includes 2 camp t-shirts. We accept American Express, MasterCard, Visa and Discover.
Please make sure you download and print the 2015 Parent Manual as this will provide specific information about your child’s camp.
Please download the TX Camper Health Form Supplement, print, complete and fax or email back to us as soon as you can and definitely before camp begins. We will ask for some medical information about your child during the online registration process. In addition, TX state law requires that this supplement be on file for every camper. We thank you for your cooperation in getting this form to us in a timely manner.
Should your child require any medication during the camp day, we ask that you complete the Authorization to Administer Medication Form and send it directly to our office or hand it to your Camp Director on your child’s first day of camp.
