At Father Daughter Camp get ready for a weekend full of memory-making adventures at T Bar M Camps. Fly off the ropes course. Put down your phones. Dress up for theme nights. Spend time learning God’s Word. Father Daughter camp is focused on building the special relationships between Father and Daughter(s). Take a break from the hustle at home and spend an adventurous weekend with your daughter.

—and the volumes it speaks for her to get his time and attention and affirmation ALL WEEKEND LONG!

Parent Child retreat ages.

Parent Child Retreats are open to all ages. Please note the majority of our campers are elementary-aged, but we have several teen campers who return each year who look forward to this weekend with their parent. We are attentive to providing teaching and activities appropriate for all ages, but don’t be surprised by the heavier attendance of elementary-aged kids!

Guest Speaker: Brian Harris

Brian Harris is an active duty Chaplain in the United States Air Force stationed at Joint Base San Antonio – Lackland serving Basic Military Training. Prior to his military service he served the local church as adult pastor at Second Baptist church Houston, North Campus. The Harris Family (est. 2003) consist of Brian and his wife Erin, Olivia (15), Benjamin (13), and Lucy Joy (10).  They live and work in San Antonio, Texas.


As someone who received Christ at a camp as a teen and gleaned priceless ministry skills serving at a camp in college, camp ministry has always been a passion for me! The Lord always seems to speak the loudest when I get away from the crowd and the routines of life. That’s exactly what Father Daughter Camp at T Bar M offers – space to refresh and reconnect with God and with your daughter!

COVID-19 adjustments

Hosting 4000+ campers this summer made us experts fast! And we are putting all that experience into hosting your weekend retreat.

Our first goal is to stop COVID-19 BEFORE it starts at camp. To do that, we are partnering with YOU, the parents! The information below will give you insight to adjustments made to help make your weekend a healthy and safe environment for everyone.


Medical Screening

Health Screening Form

We are asking all families to participate in a 14-day increased social distancing and a 7-day temperature check BEFORE your weekend begins. Every family will be asked to complete a Health Screening form showing they have met these requirements.

Upon arrival, the state requires our staff to conduct an onsite Health Screening and temperature check in addition to the completed Health Screening Form. You will also be asked if any family member has been tested for COVID-19 within those 7 days or been exposed to anyone with a positive test.

If you have any questions about this, please email [email protected]

What does practicing good social distancing look like?

By practicing good social distancing, we mean avoiding large crowds/gatherings and limiting unnecessary travel. When unable to social distance, we ask families to wear a face mask per CDC recommendations.

Face Masks

All participants and staff will be required to wear face coverings when social distancing is not possible on our property.

This is a mandate by the Texas government. Although this is not ideal, it will not keep us from having fun!

Here are times where masks are NOT required to be worn:

While eating or drinking in the dining halls or on breaks. Outdoor activities where we can control physical distancing of 6 feet apart. Engaged in swimming activities. While brushing teeth, showering and sleeping in cabins. If a person has a medical condition or a disability where a mask is not able to be safely worn

Family Groups

Once families are medically cleared to enter camp, families will be divided into larger FAMILY GROUPS (the state calls them “cohorts”), identified by colored wristbands. During large group gatherings, families will be required to stay within their family groups. This allows us to quickly and methodically contain and/or limit the potential exposure of COVID-19 among staff and guests. Our programming will make it easy for you and your family to stick together while still having an awesome weekend retreat.

Programming Changes

Even though families are medically cleared before coming to camp, you will still notice some adjustments in our programming.

First, no off-property excursions:

Once you and your child have passed your health screening, we ask that you do not leave our property. If you need anything, please let us know and we can help you. One way to prevent an outbreak is to keep our guests “quarantined together.” Which means not allowing outside guests to visit our families while a retreat is in session.

Secondly, added margin for keeping things clean:

Who says good hygiene has to be boring! We have built into our schedule plenty of time to make sure good healthy practices are followed before, during and after every activity.

Last, theme nights:

Theme nights are sure to make the memory books while also allowing good social distancing between family groups. Despite these adjustments, these nights are going to be a BLAST! Be sure to check out the packing list to see if you want to pack a few extra items!
