All About Huawni

Camp Huawni is THE summer camp of all summer camps in Texas that you will hate leaving. For nearly half a century, Camp Huawni has specialized in good ‘ole fashion fun. In 1965, founder Earl Adams, known around here as Daddy Earl, turned his life-long dream of starting a kids camp into a reality. As a life-long educator, Daddy Earl noticed that kids, just like you, weren’t experiencing fully the joys of “just being a kid” in the structured environment of K-12 school. So, with some pine planks, a hammer, and a hill-top view once scattered with sugar cane, Camp Huawni was born. Now, three generations later, the Adams Family continues to reinvent fun just for you.

Over-The-Top Summer Camp Counselors

So what keeps your friends coming back to Huawni like a Krispy-Kreme donut? Other than the fact that we’re experts at fun, we provide an electrified environment for friendships to flourish, and we do it with over-the-top counselors. Just think – you have this cool, college-aged older sister or brother who actually bugs you to play with them. That’s really how it is, and they love you just like you are…you don’t have to pretend to be popular or someone you’re not.

Kole (8 yrs at Huawni) hangs with his favorite counselor and head lifeguard, Summer (1st yr) at the Critter Pond (Waterfront Area). Kole loves camp because he gets to hang out with over-the-top counselors like Summer.

Our application process is so selective that only about 18% of our new counselor applicants ever make it onto the Huawni Staff.

So why are our Huawni Counselors so dad-gum great? They love what they do (loving your kids), and they’ve been training all their lives. The past summer our counselors averaged 4 years at Camp Huawni.

Our Tic-Tac-Toe Mission

Our mission is as simple as tic-tac-toe – Love The Kids, or LTK as we call it. So how do we share the love with you? It’s a simple yet an all too diminishing commodity – our time.

Note to parents: With our 3:1 camper-to-counselor ratio, we not only are able to LTK with your most trusted counselors, but we’re able to give your child undivided time and attention. Of all the summer camps in Texas, we work extra hard at giving away our time.

Our Beliefs Are In The Graham Crackers

At Camp Huawni, our beliefs are about as engrained in our people as a Hershey’s chocolate and mallow are in a graham cracker.

We believe that:

How Long Do I Get To Play?
