Camp Moody Outdoor Summer Day Camp



register now!

Nature will be our playground this summer at YMCA Camp Moody. Located along Onion creek on 85 acres of pristine wilderness, Camp Moody contains many features of the Edwards Plateau and is on the edge of the Balcones Escarpment. 

This summer, day campers will explore the many features this landscape has to offer: limestone bluffs, spring-fed fishing holes and three miles of trails. If your camper is ready to live on the wild side, Camp Moody is the place!

Campers’ days will be filled with hikes amongst elms, Mexican buckeyes and live oaks. Campers will learn the sport of archery, engage in a rich curriculum of outdoor education and crafts, enjoy character building team building and field games, and canoe along Onion Creek. This one-of-a-kind camp will offer your camper the opportunity to connect with nature and make new friends. 

While Camp Moody is all about time in nature, campers will also spend time exploring their artistic side in our art studio.

We invite you to let adventure begin this summer at YMCA Camp Moody.
