UBarU Summer Family Camp May 22-25, 2020

Spend time with your family in the beautiful Texas Hill Country! This Memorial Day weekend (May 22-25) 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 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.  

Accommodations: Lodging will be in the Dwight & Marie Brown Center, primarily in bunk beds, although there are also a few queen-sized beds in each suite in a private room (available if you add that to your registration). 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. Due to the communal sleeping arrangements, this event is not suitable for infants who are not sleeping through the night. There is an option to reserve one of the 8 private rooms in the Dwight & Marie Brown Center for you family of up to 4 people (queen bed and 2 bunks). Please look for that option ($100) when you register, if you like. Registration "button" is at bottom of this page. Cost is $170 for youth 13 and older & adults, $85 for kids 5-12 years and kids 4 and under are free until April 22. On April 23 until registration closes on May 19, price is $190 for adults, $95 for kids (5-12 years). If you would like to camp, cost is $100 for adults and youth, $70 for kids aged 5-12 years until April 22. Price increases by $10 for adults/youth after early bird pricing ends.
