shared experience, a powerful breakthrough, a lifelong journey;
the ministry of Camp Lone Star creates opportunities
for people of all ages and backgrounds to cultivate real
life, rooted in and centered on Christ.
God has been transforming the lives of youth and adults
through the ministry of Camp Lone Star. What started as
a brush-filled tract of 50 acres on the Colorado River has
grown into a thriving ministry with two locations, serving
over 10,000 guests annually. When campers and guests recount
their experience out at Camp Lone Star, it is rarely about
the scenic beauty of the land, or the functional buildings
for meeting, eating, and sleeping. Instead, we constantly
hear from campers, summer staff, and retreat guests that
they don’t want to leave Camp to go back to the “real
world”. For them, Camp provides an atmosphere of authenticity
in relationships. At Camp, they experience personal and
spiritual breakthroughs. Most importantly, at Camp they
experience growth in Christ. This is different from the
“real world”. At Camp Lone Star you too can
experience real life.
the past several years, we have spent time seeking input
and seeking the Lord’s will for the future of Camp
Lone Star. Through this process, we have identified several
campus improvements that will enhance our ability to better
serve our guests and carry out our mission. We are excited
about these campaign projects but even more excited about
the mission-furthering impact they will have to cultivate
real life for generations to come.
CONSTRUCT NEW STAFF HOUSING: As a result of this campaign,
we will be able to retain and recruit the highest caliber
staff to serve at Camp Lone Star. Our dedicated team
will have the security and comfort of home allowing
them to fully focus on providing the highest quality
service possible to our campers and guests.
CONSTRUCT NEW BASE CAMP DINING HALL: As a direct result
of constructing a new Base Camp Dining Hall, our campers
will be able to experience an hour more of adventurous
Christ-centered experiences in their summer camp days.
This will also allow our summer camp families and guests
to check-in for camp in a comfortable, air-conditioned
RENOVATION & EXPAND THE RETREAT CENTER: As a direct
result of renovating and expanding the Retreat Center,
we will have the ability to serve 1,000 more guests
annually and provide a larger meeting space for our
us Sunday, May 23, 2021 for an exciting Campaign Kickoff
Day! We will worship the Lord together and participate
in a prayer walk around the proposed campaign sites. Our
time will conclude with a catered lunch paired with stories
of how this ministry has been cultivating real life and
how this campaign will further that impact for even more
generations to come. At the end of this time, we will invite
you to prayerfully join us in being a part of this campaign.
has done amazing things to cultivate real life over the
last 80 years at Camp Lone Star, and our mission to transform
lives through adventurous Christ-centered experiences has
been at the heart of all that we do. It’s a place
and ministry where seeds of faith are planted, Christian
leaders are raised up, and the Kingdom of God grows. As
a result of this expansion and growth from this campaign,
more individuals, families, and groups will be served, and
more lives will be transformed for the sake of the Gospel.
We can’t do this without you. Your generosity will
have an eternal impact for generations to come. Join us
as we cultivate real life!
