Summer Camp Courage and Confidence Policy

environment where authentic relationships are formed. Our Mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

strives to create a Christian 


Safety is our number one concern at Glen Lake Camp and Retreat Center.  We follow the protocols and standards of the DSHS in Texas as a licensed youth camp ( in all of our programs and activities for summer camp.  We take all communicable diseases seriously and will continue to follow the same CDC and DSHS protocols for COVID-19.  Glen Lake staff are keeping current on the recommendations provided by the CDC, DSHS, and local health services regarding the coronavirus, the rate of spread, and prevention.  We will continue to develop our future plans as recommendations and mandates evolve.


As of March 19, 2020, we are coordinating and planning the best summer camp experience for Summer Camp 2020.  We will continue to be diligent in preparing a safe Christian environment where campers can form authentic relationships through the ministry of summer camp.  We have some exciting new plans for this summer and we cannot wait to see you in June. 


In order to serve our campers and their families well, Glen Lake Camp & Retreat Center has adopted a new Courage and Confidence Policy for Summer Camp 2020.  We are asking campers to continue registering for summer camp and getting their spots reserved.  Our new Courage and Confidence Policy offers registered campers the following options if we are mandated to close our summer camp program:


Option 1  •  100% refund of Summer Camp 2020 registration fee

Option 2  •  Change your registration to another available week of camp

Option 3  •  Forward your payment to Summer Camp 2021

Option 4  •  Donate a portion or entire registration fee to the ministry of Glen Lake


The Courage and Confidence Policy requires notice at least 6 days before the first day of the camper’s registered camp if you would like to cancel for 2020.  If you are currently registered for camp, this policy is available to you.  We hope you will be courageous and wait with us as we see what the future holds, but we also understand if you are registered and your family is in a situation where you need the funds returned for your immediate needs.  


Our hope is to join you in being courageous and confident in making plans for Summer 2020.  This new policy allows us to continue to make plans, but assures you the opportunity to decide what happens to your registration if Summer Camp 2020 has to be canceled or postponed.  


We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 virus and will communicate any changes to our plan for Summer Camp 2020.  Please be confident the leadership of Glen Lake understands the importance of a team focused on safety.  We are recruiting, hiring, and training a team of Christian leaders to serve campers and their families this coming season.  As we prepare for summer, we are fully committed to beating this virus!  Please consider the recommendations of the CDC and follow your local mandates so we can enjoy an incredible summer together. 


We are praying for you, our camp community, and the world as we join (from a distance) to stay safe and healthy-
