Getaway Cabin by Glen Lake Camp & Retreat Center
Stay • Experience • Rest

Glen Lake Camp is a premiere Christian retreat center in Glen Rose, Texas that allows groups of all ages to get away from daily distractions, to rest, build friendships, and ultimately focus on their relationship with Christ. Glen Lake Camp provides the facilities, meals, and recreation activities which allows you the freedom to custom design your own experience. We have adjusted our minimum group size to accommodate families, quarantine friends, and house churches. 

Glen Lake Camp and Retreat Center has canceled our 
Summer Camp Programing for Summer 2020 and has been closed to retreats since March 16, 2020. Getaway Cabins are not a Glen Lake Camp programmed activity or retreat. We employ full-time housekeeping staff for the cleanliness of our facilities and maintenance. Our meeting spaces and waterpark will remain closed. Note: This is not Summer Camp. We do not provide your schedule of programs and activities. Minors must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

Check-in will be located in the Glen Lake Camp main office (Taylor Welcome Center). Check out will be 10:00am after your second night.

Social Distancing Protocols

At Glen Lake Camp & Retreat Center, the safety and well-being of our staff and guests continue to be a top priority. As a result of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), Glen Lake Camp and Retreat Center made the decision to suspend our regular summer programming. In light of Gov. Abbott’s plan to re-open Texas, we have re-opened Glen Lake Camp for self-facilitated Getaway experiences. Below is a list of the protocol in accordance with the recommendations made by the​ ​Governor’s Strike Force to Open Texas updated May 5, 2020. Our desire is to provide a safe and socially distant environment that allows families to get out of the house and enjoy sunshine and nature.
