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 retreat guests 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.
SUMMER CAMP 2020
Building relationships, strengthening bonds, and sharing experiences. (families including K-3rd)
Family Camp is a great way to introduce your family and first time campers to camp! Your family must have at least one going into K-3rd camper and one parent/guardian to attend. Glen Lake Camp has reserved the necessary hotel rooms to serve family lodging needs. Glen Lake will take care of all hotel reservations and will be at the hotel when families arrive for Family Camp. We will send directions to the hotel one week before the event. The hotel will also provide breakfast meals each morning. We hope these accommodations will allow for families to continue to enjoy the private hotel space for family lodging needs.
Your family will be introduced to the camp experience with all worship and activities taking place at the camp. Camp activities include worship, fishing, swimming, canoeing, hiking, crafts, and small group activities. This includes a T-Shirt.
