Camp Niwana is a year-round camp and conference center tucked away in the rolling hills of the unique Big Thicket national preserve in east Texas.  Whether you prefer tent camping or cabins, cooking out on the fire or in the kitchen, hiking or swimming  . . . we have it all! Cabins, Lodge and Kitchen are available year-round for rentals by churches, youth groups, families, and other businesses.  Please contact us for more information and to schedule your event well in advance, as our calendar stays full, especially on the weekends. Pool Summer Camp is available each year and offers a traditional activity program of swimming, archery, riflery, arts, crafts, singing, fishing, hiking, canoeing and more.  Campers are grouped by ages and live in small cabin groups.  A counselor is with each group at all times.   This will be our 63rd year of summer camp fun! Program Levels for summer camp are based on “grade entering in the Fall” (not the grade you just finished). Starflight – K, 1, 2 Adventure – 3, 4, 5 Discovery – 6, 7, 8 Horizon – 9, 10, 11, 12 C.I.T. (Counselor in Training) – 12th grade (11th graders may be considered on an individual basis)
