Relationships Matter

I was having lunch with a friend last week and we were both relating over how God uses Camp to bring people into our lives who better us. She said, “There is something just different about Camp friendships.” I couldn’t agree more. As summer is up to bat, I find myself wanting every Coach to […]

Bring a friend to Camp!

With the days getting warmer and the sun setting later, it sure does make us wish for the summer days to arrive! Moms thinking about slower mornings, not packing lunches and no homework. Kids thinking about playing late into the evening, not eating at school, and no homework. And Camp. Summer approaching makes us think […]

Let's get to work!

I didn't know the value of good o manual labor until that first Training Camp at T Bar M in 1993, but it did set foundations that I continue to use today. The outcome of two hours of painting fences and moving rocks was quite more than two checks on the "to do" list. It […]

Never Give Up

They say a picture says a thousand words. And this one sure does. Paige (Nowlin) and Hudson High, lifetime campers as well as Coaches, would never have dreamed they would be standing in the T Bar M gym with their own kiddoes back when they were campers in the very same space.  Yet, there they were … […]

The T Bar M Family

It's a good family to be a part of. A really good one. As 270 plus alumni gathered two Saturdays ago to pray for and support Jen and Cole Adams before Layne's Celebration of Life service, we could not deny the JOY that was in that room. Even in the midst of hard things, there […]

Thank you Lord ... this much!

How to be thankful ... in ALL circumstances. Thanksgiving has always been one of those holidays that I tend to brush over…it’s a warmup for Christmas, right?  Family getting together, eating huge meals, holiday hours of sleep, and seriously…Christmas has gifts…that’s next level. Thanksgiving, I mean…yeah, I’m thankful…but am I really?  I find myself in a […]

What Does a Camp Director Do All Year?

What does a Camp Director do all year? I love my job.   I don't know how many people can say that. I imagine there are a lot of people who like their job. But actually love their job? I think I'm definitely in the minority on that one. And you're probably saying to yourself, "Yeah Chris, real […]

T Bar M Classic 2023

2nd Annual T Bar M Classic Lately, I have found myself saying one phrase more than any other. It's only two words, and it is a phrase we hear multiple times every day. Sometimes I think it has stopped carrying the weight that it should because of how frequently it is used. Have you guessed […]

It is so good to be home at T Bar M!

Welcoming Kelli Boyd home “God writes some amazing stories.” I’m going to credit Keith Myer with that quote. I don’t know if he stole it or if he was prompted by the Holy Spirit from all the incredible things we have heard and experienced at T Bar M in the last 40+ years. Nonetheless, the longer I […]

The only explanation... through the generosity of the T Bar M family, God showed himself to be faithful once […]
