you're invited to family camp
You’re invited to join us for T Bar M Family Camp!

Join us in the Texas Hill Country for T Bar M Family Camp!

Not sure what “family camp” means? Basically it’s a vacation where you get to focus on the family and our staff gets to focus on the planning.

Summer camp doesn’t have to be only for the kids. Moms, dads, grandparents, aunts and uncles need a place to unwind and relax too! Our families come from all across Texas including, Dallas, Houston, Austin, Midland and San Antonio.

Leave your hustle at home, and come to a stress-free, memorable vacation for all ages. Play in nature, sleep in comfort, and enjoy an all inclusive experience with your family.

“Our family spends way too much quality time together. I wish we were busier.”
– said no parent ever

4 Days and 5 Nights.

Spend time reflecting, reconnecting, and renewing your relationships with each other and with God. Have you ever taken a vacation where your expectations didn’t match the reality: You wanted relaxation and fun but got traffic, crowds, schedules, and stress? We’ve been there!

T Bar M Family Camp is a vacation you don’t have to recover from.

No cooking, cleaning or planning. You show up and we do the rest. Our staff takes care of your family, our college coaches help plan your activities while your campers build community and develop friendships.

What makes Family Camp stand out?

Easy, our college coaches! What makes family camp different from your normal vacation is our summer college staff. Imagine having an extra set of hands during meals, playing with kids and helping you get from one place to the next. Your kids will have Godly influencers and a new big brother and sister.

Start Creating Meaningful Memories.

We understand how hard it is to plan, execute, and ENJOY a summer family vacation. Stop worrying about screen-time and schedules, and start creating memories because nurturing relationships, and having fun is what summer family camp is all about.

2022 family camp speakers

We have these trusted speakers leading our adults.

Session 1: John Elmore (Speaker)

 

John Elmore (ThM, Dallas Theological Seminary / MA Youth and Family Ministry, John Brown University / BBA Baylor University) is the Teaching Pastor & Senior Director of Pastoral Care at Watermark Community Church in Dallas, Texas. He is married to his best friend Laura and they have three children: Hill, Penny, and Judd. Their family enjoys kids’ sports, hiking, road trips, fishing, and making intentional memories together.  

For the Elmores, family camp is a highlight of the year to bond deeper as a family without any distractions, schedules, unplugged from devices and work demands. It’s so much different than a usual vacation because of the purposefulness of Family Camp – they love how it provides a chance to be away together, while also having shared experiences and growth in the LORD.  

Session 2: Ken Hicks (Speaker)

 

Ken & Rita are celebrating the 26th anniversary of God’s blending of their family together this year. They have 3 daughters (Alex, Sammi & Sarah) and one grand-daughter, sweet Amelia Rose. They have served together as God’s under-shepherds in churches in Texas and Arkansas and currently celebrate Jesus at Heights Community Church in San Antonio where Ken serves as the lead pastor. Ken is also the Founder & CEO of 360 Enrichment Group, which proactively partners with companies to build Healthy Marriages thru the workplace, and currently is a partner in a Home Remodeling & Construction company as well. 

Ken is always willing to talk about his beloved Baylor Bears if you’re so inclined. Sic ‘em! If you even ask Ken about family camp, he will immediately encourage you to come and experience life-giving fellowship, and an amazing week learning to enjoy Jesus together. 

Session 3.0: Adam Griffin (Speaker)

 

We are thrilled to have Adam Griffin join us at camp this year! He and Chelsea been married for 12 years. They have three busy boys – Oscar, Gus, and Theodore (10, 8, and 6). Adam is the lead Pastor at Eastside Community Church in Dallas. And, he is the host of the Family Discipleship Podcast. 

The Griffins absolutely love the adventure of camp! They love to focus all of their attention on Christ as they take a break from their regular routine. They’re excited about the opportunity to play as a family and to enjoy our time together.  

Session 4: Chad Warren (Speaker)

 

Chad and his wife, Shanon, have three kiddos, Truett (12), Jayne (11), and Titus (9). They live in Georgetown, TX where he serves on the pastoral team at First Baptist Church of Georgetown. He leads the FBG church family in living on mission, helping them to leverage where the Lord has placed them for the spread of His name, from neighbors to the nations. He studied philosophy at Oregon State University (Go Beavs!) and graduated from Knox Theological Seminary. The Warren’s enjoy traveling and adventuring together, particularly in the mountains.  

The Warrens value the environment camp creates for people to step out of the normal rhythms of life and draw near to the Lord. Camp creates a space for both fun and reflection centered on Christ.  Family camp is especially unique, in that it creates opportunities for families to draw closer together and reflect on what the Lord is doing in their midst and gives parents the tools to continue this focus when they get home. 

Session 5: Rodney Hobbs (Speaker)

 

Rodney grew up in a Sulphur, Oklahoma inside of a Jesus-loving family. At thirteen the person and work of Jesus became real to him, and his life changed forever. After high school, he went to the University of Oklahoma (Boomer Sooners!) where multiple life-altering events occurred. First, he met Laura, who he married in 2002. Second, he graduated with a B.A. in Finance (and later a Master of Divinity from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary). And third, Jesus (as a huge surprise to him!) opened his heart to ministry and then a door at a church in Mansfield, TX. After working in student ministry for almost eight years, Jesus then opened another door in 2009 to plant Stonegate Church in Midlothian, Texas. 

Rodney and Laura have three kids (Hannah – 13, Caleb – 12, and Eva – 11) who are excited to come to camp!  

A note from Rodney: I want to applaud the investment you’re making by setting aside a week of your life for family camp. You’re making a great investment into your marriage. You’re making a great investment into your parenting – and the future of your children! I can’t wait to see you there! 

Session 11: Gary Thomas (Speaker)

 

Gary and Lisa Thomas have been married for 37 years and have three children and two grandchildren. 

Gary is the author of 20 books that together have sold over two million copies, have been translated into more than a dozen languages, and won numerous awards. His writings have established him as a thought-leader in the areas of marriage, parenting, and spiritual formation. 

Gary has been a part of numerous family camps through the years and has reveled in the stories of multi-generational memories. He says that there’s something about a special shared place and time that sticks with a family and becomes part of its lore and history that is really precious and profound.  

 

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 and dads have to say about their experience with T Bar M.

  • When I think of T Bar M, I think of family and unity. The things that T Bar M provides, they bond our family. I tell my husband that all the activities and all that stuff is amazing … but the icing on top is the firm foundation of all of us together digging in God’s word. All that we learn and practice at Family Camp goes home with us. That’s what we value and that’s why I will continue to send them to camp.

    Gaby Bradford

    New Braunfels, Texas

  • My kids can’t stop talking about camp. The blob. The coaches. The river. Mister Universe. The dang stuffed animals they got at the camp store. Ha ha. And Chris and I can’t stop talking about camp either. The conversations we had. What a ball we had as a family. How much we love that place and the people!

    Rachel Shelton

    Dallas, TX

  • It sounds crazy to say we bonded as a family. I mean being that I’ve shared a bed with my husband for 12 years and carried the 2 children in my body for 9 months. But it is true. And we came home more aware of what kindness and serving looks like. And most importantly, with a burden lifted that nothing we can measure on earth matters. For kids about to start school with 2 parents with jobs that are heavily influenced by what happens this November, it was a good reminder to set our priorities straight.
