Glen Lake Camp and Retreat Center is located in Glen Rose, Texas and is an extension ministry of the Central Texas United Methodist Conference. Our camp is located on the Paluxy River where retreats and campers experience the beautiful Texas hills while staying comfortable in our cabins, lodges and education facilities.
We welcome every camper with adventure, community, and life in Christ. The very nature of Camp, brings us out of our comfort zones and into a life cut off from distraction, so we can experience and explore God’s beautiful creation. Summer Camp brings us together with lasting friendships, strengthened through intentional life together. Together we soak in God’s Holy Word to develop and grow our relationships with Christ, people, and the world. If you plan to attend camp with your group, fill out our Volunteer Application.
