5 Questions with Dan Neal, Director of Camp Doublecreek

In an effort to get to know more about the people who make Round Rock such a great place to live, I am resurrecting a series I did years ago called “5 Questions With….” As I did in the past, I will be asking a few questions of interesting people of Round Rock – people who work hard behind the scenes, people who strive to make our city great, people who make fun events & places possible in our city, and just cool folks you need to know.

But I wanted to take it a step further and reach out to as many businesses owners in Round Rock as I can. I want to catch up with them to learn how their business is doing under these conditions. And see if & how we can help keep them in businesses. I think you will be happy to hear some of the unique ways that businesses have adapted to the changes or are making plans to offer new products and services once they do open.

One of the biggest unknowns right now is how Summer will look this year. Will pools open? Will baseball happen? Will summer camps resume?? Our greatest hope is a big YES to all of these. But until we know for sure, I wanted to catch up with the director of Camp Doublecreek, one of Round ROck’s premier summer camps.

What is Camp Doublecreek?

Camp Doublecreek is a summer day camp for kids aged 4-14 and we’ve been in Round Rock since 1971. 

What is the status of your business now?

 We are planning and prepping to welcome campers in hopes of opening our gates this summer! 

What do you miss most about your business?

During this time we normally have Open House every Saturday, but we have moved those to virtual Open Houses, so we’re missing seeing families every week. 

What are the plans for the future for Camp Doublecreek?

 We are in weekly communication with leaders from other camps in Texas, as well as with all the appropriate officials and as of now, we are planning on having camp. Although there are lots of unknowns, what we do know is that kids need camp now more than ever! 

What has been a few of your favorite “at-home” activities during this time?

Our family has enjoyed more down time outside going on walks and just being together.

Bonus – what’s the first thing you will do once the Stay-at-Home mandate is lifted?  

 I would love to take my wife on a date!
