Camp Lone Star


We are pleased to announce that Camp Lone Star will be returning to Messiah’s Ranch, near Bryan and College Station, in 2019! 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, rustic and 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 each day!  This allows us to accommodate gluten-free, dairy-free and allergy-sensitive campers and staff.

This year, we will have access to a newly constructed lounge and dining area at the Treehouse Dorms that we plan to use for a variety of events, as well as our teen staff lounge. 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 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 “Discernment: Training Your Heart.” This theme will form the basis of our daily Compass Checks and Christian Living classes.

Our activities will include Christian Living classes, swimming, fishing, canoeing, outdoor skills, archery, arts and crafts, recreation, music, lakefront activities for both campers and staff, and some exciting evening events. Also, we will have a new class this year centered on teaching a variety of interesting outdoor skills. We are planning to offer one or two more challenging activities for our older campers, as well as some new activities for all campers.

This year we need staff members who are musically inclined and certified lifeguards.

We are looking forward to welcoming y’all to Camp Lone Star in 2019! Whether you are a Lone Star veteran or a first-timer, we promise to do our best to make your camp experience the best ever!
