We are pleased to announce that Camp Lone Star will be returning to Messiah’s Ranch (messiahsranch.org), near Bryan and College Station, for 2017! We are looking forward to welcoming our campers and staff to an exciting and enriching four days of camping on 100 secluded and wooded acres, offering us modern, yet unique and rustic, fully air-conditioned facilities.
Our boys’ dorms are actually “tree houses,” which can be accessed by standard and circular stairways. If you need to exit in a hurry, use the slide that whisks you to ground level! Do you have trouble sleeping? Let the evening breeze blowing through the trees rock you to sleep!
You will love our large and spacious dining hall and the three delicious meals served by our own staff every day! A large covered pavilion overlooking the lake was completed in time for last year’s camp and will once again be the location for our end-of-camp talent show, which is always a big hit with campers and parents alike. We encourage our campers and staff to bring their instruments with them for this event and start thinking about how you might like to be involved in the show.
Our camp theme for this year is “Vision: Seeing Clearly in a Clouded World.” Our goal is to immerse our campers and staff in a godly environment that will equip them to see and embrace their future with greater clarity and purpose.
Our activities will include Christian Living classes, swimming, fishing, canoeing, archery, riflery, arts and crafts, recreation, music, as well as a lakefront zip line and waterslide and some exciting evening events. This year we are hoping to schedule some additional downtime for each dorm to enjoy with their counselors. In addition, we hope to offer one or two more challenging activities for our older campers.
Last year we welcomed over 90 campers to Camp Lone Star, and we would like to up that number to over 100 this year! Whether you are a Lone Star veteran or a first-timer, we promise to do our best to make your 2017 camping experience memorable and rewarding! Y’all come see us!
