Located on the beautiful Gulf Coast of Southeast Texas and on the shores of Tres Palacios Bay, an inlet of the Gulf of Mexico, and halfway between Galveston and Corpus Christi, TBE enjoys the beauty of God's creation and an exceptional climate, year-round. In existence since 1902, making it the oldest camp west of the Mississippi River, TBE has a diverse array of high-quality facilities, a very accommodating servant-hearted staff, an especially unique & picturesque waterfront, and a friendly atmosphere and laid-back personality. You'll love it!
Texas Baptist Encampment
is your Tropical Destination
for a Spiritual Retreat!
Good news, campers! Our website updates have reached a point where we can now offer online registration. This feature is currently reserved for Texas Baptist Encampment's Girls Mission Camp and Boys Adventure Camp. To register your church for either of these camps, find the correctly labeled tab under "Summer Camps" and complete the available forms and instructions. To request more information about scheduling your own retreat at TBE, please follow the instructions under the "Retreats" tab. We are happy to assist you with any inquiries or requests and we are excited to offer this innovative registration option!
If you have not already noticed, this is a new website design. Please enjoy spending time here as the content is being added. There will soon be information included for weekend retreat rates, summer camp pricing, registration forms, FAQs & answers, general policies, and other important nuggets that you may be looking for. Until that time, if the site is not answering your questions, please feel free to email, firstname.lastname@example.org, or call the Encampment office at 361-972-2717 to be able to speak with a TBE Staffer. We would love to hear from you!
