Camp Lone Star


We are pleased to announce that Camp Lone Star will be returning to Messiah’s Ranch (, near Bryan/College Station, for 2018! We are looking forward to welcoming our campers and staff to an inspiring four days of camping on 100 secluded and wooded acres, offering 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 your dorm 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 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.  We welcome parents and family members to arrive early enough on Wednesday to enjoy the talent show before returning home with your campers.

Our camp theme for this year is “Walking With Integrity.”  This theme will form the basis of our daily Compass Checks and Christian Living classes.

Our activities will include Christian Living, swimming, fishing, canoeing, archery, riflery, arts and crafts, recreation, gaga ball and music, as well as a lakefront zip line and waterslide, PLUS THE BLOB for both campers and staff, along with some exciting evening events. This year, we are hoping to schedule some additional “downtime” for each dorm to enjoy with their counselors. We are also planning to offer one or two more challenging activities for our older campers.  Our teen staff lounge will be located in the dining hall this year and should prove to be a wonderful venue for getting together during your break time.

We are looking forward to welcoming our campers and staff to Camp Lone Star in 2018! Whether you are a Lone Star veteran or a first-timer, we promise to do our best to make your 2018 camping experience the best ever!  Y’all come see us!
