Summer Plan of Action


Howdy Camp Lone Star Family!

We know that when things seem bleak and when we face challenges, that means Satan is working hard. But here’s the truth—God is working harder and is on the throne now and forever. As we continue through the effects of this pandemic, we believe that this ministry of Camp Lone Star is needed now more than ever. Camp is that intentional community and conduit through which Jesus transforms lives. By Faith we continue to move forward day by day.

The following is our action plan regarding Summer 2020. This plan includes:

• DECISION TIMELINE: An update regarding decisions for each camp session.
• CANCELLATION OPTIONS: Your options if a camp session is canceled.
• FINANCIAL REALITIES: The financial realities camp currently faces and how you can help.

Plan updated July 10, 2020.


Decision Timeline

Outside of their spiritual growth, camper safety is our top priority and we remain committed to doing everything in our control to prevent the entry of COVID-19 into camp and mitigate its impact according to the Governor’s Texas State Health protocols. We worked closely with the Fayette County Judge, Emergency Management Chief, and our Regional Texas State Department of Health to develop an extensive Health & Safety plan prior to summer camp. However, despite all our precautions, we have had multiple reports of campers testing positive after returning home from their summer session at Camp Lone Star. We give thanks that these campers reported only mild symptoms or were asymptomatic altogether.

After consultation with our Board of Directors and prayerful discernment, it is with a heavy heart, and out of an abundance of caution and care for the health and safety of all involved, that we have made the decision to cancel the remaining sessions of Summer Camp 2020 at Camp Lone Star. Please visit our Latest Updates page for updates on the COVID-19 situation here at Camp Lone Star.


Canceled Session Options

Out of an abundance of caution, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the remaining sessions of Summer Camp 2020. From here, you have the following options:

  • Donate-donate your registration payment to support camp.
  • Refund and Donate-take a partial refund and make a partial donation of your registration payment.
  • Full Refund-receive a full refund of your registration payment.

In making this choice, we’re asking for your help. Summer session cancelations could be crippling to Camp Lone Star and our ability to serve you and our camp family moving forward. If you have the ability to support camp by donating your full summer balance, please do so.

If your financial circumstances mean you need your registration fee refunded, we completely understand and will do so.

Financial Realities

Please be praying for Camp Lone Star as we navigate the impact this pandemic is having on our ministry. We have already lost income from guest group cancellations this spring and are facing the possibility of losing income for all or part of the summer. We want to ensure camp is able to survive this current crisis and arrives on the other side with the ability to continue to provide the programs and ministry people love.

In the spirit of transparency, we want to make you aware of the financial realities of the current situation:

  • Reality #1
    Summer revenue makes up 43% of our annual income. This revenue is key to our ability to do ministry throughout the whole year.

  • Reality #2
    If we refund all our summer camp registrations, we will be in a hole that will be very difficult to pull out of without significant changes to our ministry. The very best thing you can do is to donate your full registration balance to camp if your program is cancelled.
  • Reality #3
    Our past actions have positioned us to weather storms, and we are currently doing everything we can to minimize expenses, but the potential impact of this pandemic could put us in a very precarious financial situation.
  • Reality #4
    God has provided Camp Lone Star with amazing support and a tremendous group of supporters over the years. We firmly believe that with continued action and strong support from our camp family we can weather this storm and continue to be a place for all to experience Christ-centered adventures, spiritual growth, inspiration, and recreation for years to come. We humbly ask you to partner with us through the By Faith Fundraising Campaign.

Please give to camp in whatever way you are able. If you would like to learn more about our By Faith Fundraising Campaign, please click below:
