UBarU Summer Family Camp May 28-31, 2021

Spend time with your family in the beautiful Texas Hill Country! This Memorial Day weekend (May 28-31) of camp will offer opportunities to learn, grow, and share as a family, as well as opportunities for parents to enjoy some free time and activities designed just for them.  Other activities will include cookouts, campfires, archery, swimming, games, nature education, and star party (pending conditions).  Programming is being planned for kids and adults.  Arrive after 4:00 for dinner on Friday evening.  Weekend includes lodging accommodations in the Dwight & Marie Brown or cottages and all your (on-campus) meals from Friday dinner to Monday breakfast.  A field trip to Kerrville on Sunday morning for church and/or lunch is often part of the weekend as well. Well-behaved, vaccinated canines are welcome this weekend.  Dogs must relate well to other dogs and humans, be supervised by their owners at all times and leave no "gifts" for anyone to step in.   COVID precautions will include outdoor activities encouraged including dining, mask wearing, physical distancing and conscientious hand washing.

Accommodations: Lodging will be in the Dwight & Marie Brown Center and in cottages- one family per Suite or per cottage. Tent camping (bring your own tent) is also an option. Each bunkhouse suite has central heat and air and one common bathroom. Additional bathrooms, sinks, and shower stalls are available one door down. Registration "button" is at bottom of this page. Cost is $175 for adults, youth 13-17 $140, kids 5-12 years $100 and kids 4 and under are free until May 1.
