It's a Great Day to be at Camp!

Texas Baptist Encampment is available year-round for summer camps, weekend retreats, conferences, church gatherings, banquets, and special events for any and all ages and many different church denominations.  If you need to sleep, meet, eat, or play, this is the place you want to be. 

Call or email to schedule an event for your group or browse through the website for information, facilities, and programs.  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 faciliites, a very accommodating servant-hearted staff, an especially unique & picturesque waterfront, and a friendly atmosphere and laid-back personality.  You'll love it!
