We encourage you to help us raise your needed funds though recruiting teams for our golf tournament, attending our annual Gala and telling friends and family to donate on our website.

More About Camp
CAMP BLESSING TEXAS is a Christian summer camp for children with special medical, physical and developmental disabilities and their siblings. Because parents/caregivers don't come to camp, our campers need to be comfortable away from their parents/caregivers for a week. We suggest campers be at least seven years old.
CBTX campers deserve the highest quality of care. Therefore, every camper who has a disability is within arms reach, one-on-one, with his/her own counselor 24 hours a day. Background searches are done and must be clear for every volunteer and staff member over 18 years of age. Within each cabin the ratio is 1.3 staff for every camper. Further, two physicians and three nurses are at camp 24 hours a day.
At Camp Blessing Texas we work to help each of our campers enjoy fun summer camp activities such as swimming, canoeing, fishing, nature trails, arts & crafts, pony rides, hay rides, petting zoo, wall climbing, archery, disc golf, and others. Each evening we celebrate with a theme party and end each night with praise, worship and a brief message about Jesus our Lord. All activities are based on a Christian lifestyle and the foundation of our program is to teach and show the love of Christ to ALL!
