To a ship at sea, a lighthouse signals a safe passage. But the beacon at The Kemah Lighthouse Maze isn't so reliable. A miniature lighthouse topped with a winking mermaid marks the entrance to a winding labyrinth, but once you're deep inside the tangle of corridors, simply following the light will inevitably result in a face full of wall. Instead, explorers must rely on their innate sense of direction, their wits, and their talking companion bird to navigate. After you've made your way to the other side of the maze, you can kick back in the park next door for a well-earned picnic.
At Camp Niwana, youth and teens have spent their summers enjoying activities centered around environmental education, conflict resolution, and fostering leadership skills since 1953. Beneath a canopy of towering oaks and pines in the Big Thicket area, Camp Niwana invites campers to explore new things, learn new skills, and meet new friends outside the ones they have made back home playing xBox.
Much like the kids themselves, the camp has evolved over the years, too. In addition to its classic camp activities, it currently offers more modern experiences. And Camp Niwana doesn't limit their adventures to just the summer. Throughout the year, families and groups can visit the property to have some fun of their own and use the facilities for their own family activities, all while staying in electricity-equipped cabins with a full bathhouse but no air-conditioning units.
