We welcome all individuals with a primary diagnosis of a cognitive or developmental disability who might not be comfortable at, or able to attend a typical camp. Common diagnosis include: Down syndrome, autism, Cerebral palsy and others.
Each camper will be paired with a one-on-one "Buddy" that will be with them for the entire week. We have a full clinic that is staffed with doctors or nurses, and a kitchen staff that can accommodate any special diets.
Financial Assistance Available
Camper Financial Aid is available based on need.
We encourage you to help us raise your needed funds through other community resources and churches. Additionally, we are accredited through the American Camp Association (ACA) so if you have Medicaid, or are part of a Medicaid Waiver Program, contact your case management agency to see if they will cover some or all of the camp fee.
We offer amazing dining options that go beyond typical "camp food" and provide delicious, crowd-pleasing meals three times a day. We also have a separate Special Diets kitchen that can accommodate any unique dietary needs or food allergies.
Camp Blessing Texas is a Christian summer camp for children with physical and developmental disabilities. Because parents/caregivers don't come to camp, our campers need to be comfortable away from their parents/caregivers for a week. Campers must 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 "Buddy" 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, physicians and 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, horseback riding, archery and others. Each evening we celebrate with a worship service and skit that communicates the message of the Good news of Jesus Christ. We end the evening with a theme party and event that is Unbelievably Fun! All activities are adapted regardless of their ability level and are based on a Christian values. The foundation of our program is to teach and show the love of Christ to ALL!
