Growth doesn't just happen, it's inspired.
There's a reason Camp Travis fills up so fast.
Actually, there are 115 of them. And they don't include the water--skiing, the wrangling, the wild theme nights or the ropes-courses (though those are major contenders). No, the biggest thing that brings Travis campers back year after year is the Camp Travis coaches.
Our coaches are carefully vetted over months of off-season interviews, chosen for their skills as listeners and encouragers, and as models of what it looks like to be a strong, young Christian. We're big believers in the power of fun, definitely (look no further than archery tag or our ZeroShock stunt bag). But at Camp Travis fun always has a purpose. When a middle-schooler or high--schooler spends a week at Camp Travis, it's not just another summer camp. It's a seriously transformative experience.
Book your week now, to make sure you don't lose a spot in the best week of summer.
Lake Level and Safety Notice
With God's provision of rain in May, we are back to running ALL lakefront activities! As always, our camper safety comes first.
- We monitor water levels daily on Lake Travis and adjust lake activities when necessary.
- All campers are required to wear a US Coast Guard Approved Life Vest when participating in any lake front activity. Camper's put on their vests on Kenny's Deck which is located 50 feet from the lake. Once past this point they are required to keep their vest zipped and buckled.
- All dock staff are Red Cross Certified Lifeguards which includes CPR and First Aid training.
- All boat drivers have a Texas Boater's License as well as going through our own boat driver certification course during staff training.
- If you have any questions, please call our office at 830.620.4263 and talk to a registrar.
Please also note that our cabins are situated 80+ feet above Lake Travis which creates natural safety boundaries in times of heavy rain.
