Registration opens Nov. 15 for summer adventures with Camp Doublecreek. The children’s summer camp, which has served Central Texas for over 50 years, will extend its community outreach at multiple locations this summer.

“We now have three different locations where we're doing different activities,” said Dan Neal, third generation owner and director of Camp Doublecreek. “We've kind of expanded our reach all the way from east to west.”

Here’s everything parents need to know before registering:

1. There will be three different Camp Doublecreek locations this summer

There will be a location in Pflugerville, Austin and Georgetown this summer. Hosting camp at three different locations will allow more children in Austin to attend camp than in years past. Staff members planned to host camp at a new location in Pflugerville this year, but when those plans fell through due to construction delays, they found a new way to serve local families. Neal said the goal is still to host Camp Doublecreek at the new Pflugerville location in future summers.

“It makes us excited because we're able to impact more campers,” Neal said.

2. There will be different activities offered at each location

The Pflugerville location will be centered around horseback riding lessons. This will be a half-day camp.

“That's going to be a fun thing for anybody that's an animal lover or horse lover in particular,” Neal said.

Camp Doublecreek will also be offered at Reunion Ranch in Georgetown. This location will offer all of the traditional activities children have enjoyed in past summers at the camp. Campers at Reunion Ranch will enjoy arts and crafts, water activities, kickball, field games, basketball and volleyball.

In tandem with summer camp, the Spicewood Springs Road location offers high-ropes activities. This location has a two-layer high ropes course with a double zipline, a 43-foot rock wall and a smaller ropes course for younger campers. Additionally, it has archery and Gaga ball, which is a variant of dodgeball.

“It's a perfect little space,” Neal said. “There's nothing around you so you're just sitting there in the beautiful scope of nature.”

Children can attend the summer day-camp or half day horseback camp for only one week or several weeks and registration information can be found on the website.

3. Parents will receive a discount for registering early

Camp Doublecreek staff are encouraging parents to register their children early by offering a discount.

“Our early registration discount gives $50 off a week,” Neal said. “They essentially get a break in that weekly tuition price. We have other discounts on top of that if they have multiple siblings or if they sign up for four weeks or more.”

Children can attend the day-camp for only one week or several weeks. They can also register for a week at each location. Children ages 4-14 can register for camp. Children wanting to attend the equine camp must be at least 8 years old.

4. Although Camp Doublecreek will be at three different locations this summer, its mission remains the same

“The staff at each camp will be consistent; encouraging, engaging, challenging and inspiring,” Neal said. Camp Doublecreek’s mission is to make sure all campers go home at the end of the day knowing someone believes in them, which builds self-confidence.

“I think we as directors have encouraged and challenged ourselves to make sure that we have continuity across everything that we're doing even though we're spread across three different locations right now,” Neal said.
