Find out more about who we are

What makes T Bar M unique?

We desire to be a camp and place where people grow in their walk with Jesus, whether it is just starting out or has a long history. We believe this happens most successfully within the context of intentional relationships, first with God and second with others. We require our staff to intentionally pursue the campers under them and we institute a system to intentionally pursue our staff. We call it Covenant Groups. So while you are intentionally pursuing and loving kids, someone is intentionally pursuing and loving you.

The Heart of a Staff Member
  • Maintain a daily, growing walk with the LORD.
  • God is first, campers and others come second, I am third.
  • Willingness and ability to share the gospel and disciple others.
  • Be ready to serve wholeheartedly and sacrificially.
  • Teach and play with enthusiasm, excitement, and energy.
