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).

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.

This is a weekly 8-session course with the purpose of providing information and skills for managing stress and anxiety. The focus will be on what we can control right now to help us feel better. During each group we will learn and practice a new skill which you can use whenever you feel overwhelmed. Each group is accompanied by a handout that you can keep to practice the skills between sessions and to review the material covered in group as needed well after the 8-session course.
Adjusting to new culture can be extremely challenging because everything is different and new including the language, the laws, and the healthcare system. The resource group focuses on connecting you with practical information and resources to help you meet your basic needs. Some of the areas covered include legal referrals and medical referrals, referrals to English classes, resources for food, and providing information on other community resources and programs.
Art class meets weekly for two hours. No prior experience is necessary and all skill levels from beginner to advanced are welcome. This class is led by Dr. Karin Montero, CST’s Medical Director who is also an artist. Dr. Montero provides instruction on different art techniques while also facilitating lively conversation that routinely includes a lot of laughter.
In preparation for the week, each group member will be texted a series of images in advance of the art group that you can then use to paint or draw as you practice new techniques during class and between classes. Art is another way to practice mindfulness and many people find it relaxing and healing – this class might serve as a testament to the saying that “sometimes laughter is the best medicine!”
Meditation is an ancient wisdom tradition that over time has been incorporated in various forms by almost all major religions and spiritual traditions. CST’s weekly meditation group is welcoming of all religious and non-religious backgrounds and spiritual traditions. The objectives of this group are to promote a sense of safety and stability, facilitate healing and empowerment, enhance resilience and wellbeing, improve emotion regulation, and to create community and social connection and support.
Meditation has been linked to improvements in sleep, attention, memory, emotion regulation, blood pressure and chronic pain. It has also been shown to enhance wellbeing and compassion. Meditation is simple but not easy and so we use the power of coming together in a group format to provide encouragement and support to one another as we establish a meditation practice that fits our daily lives.
Women’s Yoga Class
CST hosts a weekly yoga class that is open to all female identified clients. Yoga is an ancient mindfulness practice with origins in northern India and a philosophy that emphasizes connecting the mind, body, and spirit. In this class we also place a special emphasis on practicing kindness and compassion towards ourselves by meeting ourselves where we are, befriending our bodies, and cultivating appreciation for what our bodies can do.
Yoga has been linked to health benefits such as improved sleep, increased strength and flexibility, and improvements in circulation, blood pressure, mental clarity, and wellbeing, among others. If you would like to learn more about this group, availability in the class, and to discuss options to get connected with the materials that you will need, please see your CST counselor or point of contact.
