Nestled among the tall pines on 530 acres along the shores of Lake Livingston, YMCA Camp Cullen is located just 90 minutes north of Houston. Kids ages 7 to 17 can discover new talents, create lifelong memories, learn core values and make forever friends.

Camp provides your child with an enriching outdoor experience that includes dozens of activities and specialty tracks that allow children and teens to choose their own activities, including horseback riding and water sports. Children have the opportunity to build self-confidence, independence and creativity in a safe, exciting and memorable environment. It's where kids go to grow.
