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).
