COVID-19 RESPONSE and COVID-19 EXPOSURE

Teens leave camp, but camp doesn’t leave teens.

The friendships, character, and skills kids develop at camp stay with them year-round. We are committed to helping families guide their adolescents toward a fulfilling relationship with Christ that enables them to live fully, love others, and develop into the men and women God designed them to be. With endless activity options, Camp Travis has something for every camper. Kids have a total blast while learning responsibility, teamwork, independence, problem solving, and how to grow in their relationships with the Lord and others. Our carefully selected and expertly trained counselors are Christ followers, who pour into your teens and help them develop courage, integrity, and an enthusiasm for Jesus that sticks with them long after they leave camp.

Be an SEC.

Our older campers get a special opportunity to become an SEC… Senior Exemplifying Christ. Our camp directors connect with SECs during their week at camp. They enjoy a special off-property trip – an experience that campers talk about and look forward to for years – in which they discuss world views, values, life goals and more. They also have the opportunity to come back in the coming years to serve, lead, and work at T Bar M on staff. We can’t think of a better way to offer teens trust, accountability, and the chance take what they’ve learned and pay it forward.

Your Child’s Role Model + Biggest Fan

The minute your child comes through the T Bar M gates, their coach is waiting to greet them!

Giving your child a person of Godly character to look up to, trust, and follow is a crucial part of the camp experience. Coaches are recruited from colleges across the country. They are rigorously vetted, expertly trained, and so excited to serve. Coaches show campers that walking with Christ is fun, rewarding, and contagious. While your child is having the time of their life at camp, coaches are investing in their spiritual growth, helping train their hearts to love God and love others.

lake safety

As always, our camper’s safety comes first.

FAQs: ANSWERS to the most frequently asked questions about lake safety.

  • Water Levels:  We monitor water levels daily on Lake Travis and adjust lake activities when necessary.
  • Life Vests:  All campers are required to wear a US Coast Guard Approved Life Vest when participating in any lake front activity. Camper’s put on their vests on Kenny’s Deck which is located 50 feet from the lake. Once past this point they are required to keep their vest zipped and buckled.
  • Lifeguards:  All dock staff are Red Cross Certified Lifeguards which includes CPR and First Aid training.
  • Boat Drivers:  All boat drivers have a Texas Boater’s License as well as going through our own boat driver certification course during staff training.

If you have any questions, please call our office at 830.620.4263 and talk to a registrar.

Please also note that our cabins are situated 80+ feet above Lake Travis which creates natural safety boundaries in times of heavy rain.

Testimonials

see what everyone has to say

Did you know 86% of our campers come because someone they know recommended T Bar M.

So don’t take our word for it. See what moms, dads and campers have to say about their experience with T Bar M.

  • T Bar M ... wow, I’m just tearing up thinking about it because my daughter Mikayla, she was so miserable at school and then she went to T Bar M overnight camp. They poured into her life and just said “you gonna get through it. You gonna look back on it later and say this made you stronger.” Everything they did focused back on the Bible. Myself, as a parent, can tell our kids that, but when someone else as a 20-something-year-old says “I walk this same struggle as you” and is pouring that into your child and comes back and says “I can make it!” Oh what a blessing that is.

  • For any parent that is contemplating camp, I will say this, there are a million things that are after our money and time for our children, we look at camp as an eternal investment. Not only are they going to have a great time, they are going to come away changed, mature and experience some independence in a really safe way. You will find a community of people here that will come alongside you as parents and partner with you in pointing your kids to Jesus.

    Lesley Ryden

    Midland, Texas

  • Christ centered adventure at camp is preparing my kids for that Christ centered adventure in life. There is no better teaching than living life 24/7 in a camp setting with young college kids encouraging them every step of the way. My kids experience the good and the hard. That's why they grow at camp.

    Kevin Myer

    Frisco, Texas

  • I started coming to T Bar M because one of my best friends in elementary school was like, “come to camp, it’s awesome!” So I did. Camp has been the best part of my summers. I have never seen more of Jesus in one place, ever. In the trees and in the sky and in the people that I meet. I definitely see God especially at Main Thing where every night we sing praise songs and glorify God. Everyone is singing in unison and it's the most beautiful thing. I can't wait to go back again and again.

  • If I could tell someone to do camp, I would say do it because you will have the best time of your life! It will become your second home like it has mine.
