It’s a teenagers paradise! High adventure activities on land and water and outrageously crazy theme nights take campers out of their tough world and into a week where everyone is accepted for the person God created them to be. Built to complement both the adventure and hang-time side of teenagers, Camp Travis is a unique place to explore, play, laugh, relax and learn from peers and counselors.
Our summer staff, we call them Coaches, are hand-picked because of their commitment to Christ and their desire to walk alongside teens and encourage growth by modeling a Christ-like walk 24/7. They are trained to safely encourage and guide campers to reach out and try new adventures and develop healthy relationships. They are there to listen to campers and help them find purpose.
Mornings start slow with time in God’s word and our Bible study material we call First Fruits. First Fruits takes a deep look into a different New Testament book each summer and equips campers to individually study it and claim their own faith. It’s written just for our teen campers and it’s packed with guided truth that speaks to the challenges they feel in this fast paced world we live in.
Days are filled with high adventure. Campers can climb Ft. Bragg, ski behind a Nautique, saddle a horse, fly across the Watering Hole (pool) on an circus-like trapeze, compete in the Travis Triathlon, sail Lake Travis and much much more! Theme nights combined with one's imagination quickly transition evenings into another decade, country or popular movie set with unthinkable themed extravaganzas! It’s sure to engage all campers into memories they will keep for a lifetime!
The lights eventually turn low during Main Thing and praise and worship fills Lakeview ... a special place at camp where the main thing (God) is the main thing! Every night the campers are challenged to think deep, to think hard and to think real about the truths presented through the day. With new friendships and relentless encouragement, our desire is to help every teen find purpose and leave our gates refreshed physically, spiritually and emotionally knowing they are His beloved.
