CAMP's vision for all programs is that “CAMP is for the Camper.” This means that regardless of their ability or disability, all campers will be respected, encouraged, inspired, and celebrated during their participation in our programs. This vision filters down into everything we do, from activities to training and our daily culture.
Year-round, CAMP provides recreational opportunities for individuals with medical conditions or disabilities as well as their siblings; respite for family members; leadership development for high-school students/young adults; and hands-on educational experiences for healthcare professionals.

Family Weekend Retreats are designed to adapt all recreational activities for campers with mild to severe medical conditions or disabilities while including the entire family.
Family Weekend Retreats are held at Camp CAMP in Center Point, Texas, on a beautiful 55-acre property along the Guadalupe River.
Throughout the weekend campers and their families participate together in traditional camping activities such as canoeing, horseback riding, swimming, music, sports and recreation, arts and crafts, and outdoor cooking.
During these inclusive weekends, which begin Friday evening and end Sunday afternoon, families enjoy private, climate-controlled cabins. All meals are provided, and CAMP can accommodate many special diets. Campers must be accompanied by at least one parent/guardian to provide direct support during the event.
Family Weekend Retreats are open to new and returning camper families, with priority given to those who have never attended a retreat and/or those who were unable to attend one during the previous year.
Due to the generosity of Methodist Healthcare Ministry of South Texas, Inc., which has underwritten all program expenses, there is no fee to attend.
A deposit will be required to secure your family's spot (refunded in full following retreat attendance).
Parent’s Night Out (PNO) is an enrichment activity program for children with medical conditions or disabilities (aged 3-15 years) and their siblings (aged 3-14 years).
PNO events consist of engaging games, crafts, and activities thoughtfully planned around a central theme. CAMP provides a snack and drink for all participants during the event and requests that Campers bring a sack dinner from home to enjoy with their peers.
The Parent's Night Out program is completely underwritten by CAMP. Because of this, there is no fee to attend.
Respite Weekend Camps are held monthly throughout the school year (September – May), giving campers with medical conditions or disabilities, aged 5 to 55 years, an opportunity to enjoy an overnight camping experience.

While at Summer Camp, campers are assigned to a Tribe based on gender and age. Here they are partnered with a trained counselor who provides a caring and supportive environment for the camper while fostering the social development of campers and their connections with peers.
CAMP’s cabins are large, climate-controlled, and wheelchair-accessible. Meals can be modified to accommodate most special dietary needs. Each camper’s medical needs and medication administration are overseen by healthcare professionals.
