T Bar M Camp: Changing Lives and Growing Hearts in the Texas Hill Country

By  | 

Perhaps your social media feed has been flooded this summer with images of kids off to camp. There’s a good chance that if you live anywhere within driving distance to the Texas Hill Country, many of the eager (and possibly nervous) children going off to camp are going to T Bar M camp, located in New Braunfels and Lake Travis. What is T Bar M and what makes it so special?

T Bar M was started in 1981 as a way to connect people more deeply to the love of God, through good old-fashioned play in the midst of the beauty of His creation. Now, 36 summers later and countless young lives touched, T Bar M is among the most popular summer camps in the state.

While the focus at T Bar M is on Jesus Christ, the camp is non-denominational and welcomes families from all faiths with open arms. Employing more than 270 summer staffers, the camp serves youth from kindergarteners through high schoolers. T Bar M offers day camp, overnight-camps, family camps and even corporate retreats. Despite its size and popularity, T Bar M continues to serve the needs of children and adults with personalized care year after year.

T Bar M also has a property located at Lake Travis, aptly called Camp Travis. Offering overnight camp for kids middle school through high school, the focus is on the wild theme nights as well as the power of fun. Sports Camp allows campers a chance to choose one sport to focus all of their attention and energy on for a week at a time. With professional coaches standing by to help, campers are immersed in their favorite sport with lots of fun and shenanigans to look forward to as well.
