YMCA Camp Moody Offers Outdoor Winter Fun for Kids, Adults Alike

Although the winter months in Central Texas are a bit colder, we still have amazing programming for you and your family at YMCA Camp Moody. Most days are mild, with chilly mornings and evenings, but our fun activities will keep you warm as you’re on the go!

There’s still one more weekend left in January, when we are offering a Winter Wonderland theme. This is a chance to play at camp like there is snow on the ground. We may only get snow once a year, but we can still do winter games. The day will consist of a family activity of skiing, using land skis to try and get across the meadow, sledding using a canoe, or participate in a biathlon. You can build a snowman in our arts and crafts barn, practice your aim with snowballs, and test your winter survival skills in shelter building. The activities are for all ages.

February is a Storybook theme, where your family will tell their own tale. As you move through camp doing different activities, you will have options to choose where your adventure leads you with each activity adding to the story. By the time you complete all of the activities, you will have written a story for the ages. Will your story have you slaying a dragon, or do you save the town from giants? The choice is yours.

When the weather warms in March, we’ll be testing your survival skills. The activities are designed for you to learn about survival or test what you already know. Fire-building and shelter-building are just the start of the challenges. Each step will test more of your knowledge and prepare you for any survival situation! Do you have what it takes to survive?

We also have the option for our Adventure Pass, a program that gives you an all-access pass to YMCA Camp Moody Programming. The Adventure Pass makes our adventure days, exploration days, and nature connection programs free for you and your family. Add the Adventure Pass today!

Starting in March, we are bringing back our Family Campouts for the 2021 season, come out to camp for a weekend of fun. With a curated experience, your family will have the opportunity to try most of what camp has to offer. The weekend includes Saturday Dinner and Sunday Breakfast and a campfire with S’mores! We make the experience as friendly as possible for new to experienced campers by having your tent already setup for you.  Family Campout Registration is here for you.

We hope to see you throughout all of the months at camp, and this is just a taste of what we have to offer. YMCA Camp Moody will also be a 2021 site for summer day camp, with a full-day option and specialty half-day program options. Be on the lookout for more information to come!
