manage your summer registration

Camp officially starts June 14th which is Session 3.

Unfortunately this affects campers registered in session 1 and 2. Under the guidance of our Medical Director, the CDC, local and state authorities, and the Governor’s Open Texas plan, we believe opening session 3 is the wisest decision for the health and safety of our campers. Dudley Callison, our President, has a special video message for these families.

I’m Dudley Callison and I have the privilege of serving as President for T Bar M Camps & Retreats. Not only that, I’m a camp dad.

First and foremost, we sincerely hope you are well and that those you love are safe and healthy.

Since 1981, T Bar M has embodied what you read on every gate around our property: loving God and loving others. This summer is no exception. We have been praying about how to do just that in whatever capacity we are able, while simultaneously working hard to make the necessary adjustments, define protocols, and prepare our property to welcome your camper safely.

A heartfelt THANKS to all our camp families who participated in last week’s survey. Over 2000 families took the time to share their thoughts and opinions. Overwhelmingly we heard your desire for camp to happen this summer.

I’m here to tell you, camp will happen! Officially starting June 14th. This is session 3, which unfortunately affects your registration. Under the guidance of our Medical Director, the CDC, local and state authorities, and the Governor’s Open Texas plan, we believe opening session 3 is the wisest decision for the health and safety of our campers.

Now, what does this mean for you?

You have 3 options.

First, you can transfer your registration to a later session this summer, as space is available.

Secondly, If you are unable to attend this summer, you may roll your tuition forward to summer 2021, and secure your spot at this summer’s prices.

Or finally, you may cancel your registration and receive a full refund or choose to donate it back to the ministries of T Bar M.

Now, I’m going to be transparent with you as a valued part of our camp family.

The reality of our situation is that this pandemic, as it maybe has for some of you, has had a major impact on our financial situation. T Bar M operates as a sustainable financial model. We have been prepared for a rainy day, but we were not prepared for this massive storm. As you can imagine the loss we have felt over the last couple of months has been significant. This includes the loss of valued staff, guest groups, family retreats, some of our camp programs, and ultimately a significant portion of our annual revenue.

For those of you who are unable to attend this summer, if you are able, would you consider donating a portion or all of your camp tuition back to T Bar M? Your contribution will greatly impact our ability to weather this storm and support the sustainability of our ministry into our future. For 40 years, we’ve been investing in the lives of camp families just like yours. And our hope and prayer is to continue to do so for another 40 years.

Our theme this summer is Bonafide, and we’ll be teaching your campers this summer that God’s Word is the bonafide truth and that Jesus is God’s bonafide Son. As we continue to navigate these uncertain times, I would encourage you to look to the One who is certain.

This summer may look a little different, but you can trust your camper will experience the unmatched Christ-centered adventure you’ve come to expect from T Bar M.

And I promise you, we won’t waste any fun!

Thank you for your prayers, your support and for entrusting us with your camper. We’ll see you this summer.
