This is a chance for 30, 40 or 50 year olds to be a kid again. Parents can bond with their kids by playing paintball or diving off the blob, so our Family Fun Day is a great bonding experience as well.

Parents who consider sending their children to summer camp often worry about the accommodations, the staff or the activities. Camp Cho-Yeh aims to allay these fears by hosting a Family Fun Day where family members and campers can experience the fun atmosphere of its camp firsthand—and this year the camp wants to make the experience better than ever.
“Sending your kids away can be a scary experience,” said Garret Larsen, summer camp director at Cho-Yeh. “This allows parents to see what we’re all about, see the cabins, meet our staff and participate in the same activities that their children will be doing later in the summer. This is especially great for parents who are diving into camps for the first time.”
For parents who are considering various Texas summer camps, the Cho-Yeh Family Fun Day will be held on Sunday, April 10, 2011 from 10:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. After a worship service at 11:00 a.m., the rest of the day will be open for rock climbing, ziplining, paintball and more. Lunch and refreshments will be provided in the camp dining hall, and staff will be on hand to answer questions and give tours.
Past years have shown this event to be quite successful, with 800 to 1,000 people attending each year.
“We focus on the families so that they can have a day to have a great shared experience,” said Larsen. “During the summers, a lot of the adults always ask when they can do these fun activities themselves, so this is a chance for 30, 40 or 50 year olds to be a kid again. Parents can bond with their kids by playing paintball or diving off the blob, so our Family Fun Day is a great bonding experience as well.”
