Camps

Let us help you.

We’ve been doing camp for over thirty years now and we understand our camp families have many questions … and they should!  We are taking responsibility for your most precious possessions so please ask away!  If you can’t find your question answered below, please give us a call … send us a message … or use our online chat box!

Who is the staff?

Some camps call them counselors, but at T Bar M, we call them Coaches. These college students are widely recruited and prayerfully selected through an intense application and interview process. Once hired, our coaches participate in extensive training to prepare them to fulfill, with excellence, the many roles they shoulder for the safety and best interest of your camper. Because our coaches are constantly pouring into campers, we have a grid of support to make sure they stay full as well.

How is camp kept safe?

With high adventure activities, we prioritize the highest level of safety. From pools and lake front to our high ropes course, our staff is extensively trained and certified in each activity and area of operation. We have a registered nurse and medical staff on each of our properties 24/7 who are prepared to meet any health needs of campers. We also are thoughtful to guarantee that camper’s intake of food and water satisfies the nutrition needed for the high exertion of camp’s activities. In addition to all this, our child protection plan is thorough to ensure that camp continues to be one of the safest environments for youth to thrive.

Why is it called Christ-centered Adventure?

This mission of T Bar M Camps is to present Jesus Christ, teach His ways, and represent Him through an exciting, enthusiastic and encouraging camp and retreat experience.

Camp surely is an adventure, and with each summer that passes, we find ourselves more committed than ever to the power of play, the value of sports and the healing benefits of nature, all for the sake of sharing the good news of Jesus Christ. While we’re not affiliated with any one church or denomination, our staff does hold to a common statement of faith.

Whether through structured Bible study time, or as truth is applied throughout each day, a camper’s experience at T Bar M Camps is saturated with God’s Word.

Where is T Bar M Camps?

T Bar M has four camp programs on two properties. Our Sports Camp and Day Camp operate at our New Braunfels property, while Camp Travis sits on Lake Travis just outside of Austin, in Spicewood, TX. We also have a mobile day camp called, Discover252 that partners with churches to bring camp all across Texas.

When can I register?

Our camps operate throughout the summer in 10 one week sessions. The cost of each camp varies, but we guarantee that the gift of camp for your child, is one of the greatest investments you can make.

Registration for brand new campers opens to the public on September 15th. However, if you’re an existing camper, get the scoop on our Early Bird Registration.

What else should I know?

Give me the scoop on friend requests. How about lost and found? Is there a reason, Camp Travis cabins have no air-conditioning? What are payment options for the Camp Store? Can I send packages and letters? Tell me more about opening and closing day. What if I have a Sports Camp and Camp Travis camper? What if I need to cancel registration?
