Summer Camp

Weekend Family Camp

Camp fun for the whole family!
Spend some quality family time in the beautiful Texas Hill Country at John Knox Ranch.

Each family stays in either a side of one of our duplex cabins with a bathroom and AC or in one of our rustic screened cabins with a shared shower house. Enjoy all the summer camp favorites: swimming, singing, hiking, canoeing, archery, s'mores around the campfire, chaplain time, arts and crafts, and more. You will be responsible for your children while they are at camp. Families will stay together as they participate in activities around the camp. All ages are welcome!

At JKR Family Camp your family has the opportunity to unplug, relax, and reconnect with what is most important – family, faith, community and God's glorious creation.

Price includes housing, camp activities, and our legendary homemade meals.

Sign up today to secure your child's spot!
Financial assistance is available. Together with our donors we are committed to making sure that financial challenges will never be the reason a child can't attend camp. The scholarship application can be found in the registration portal.
Getting around camp
While here we ask you to fully participate in the life of camp. We encourage you to park your car and experience camp on foot for all who are able. If you have accessibility/transportation challenges you can use your personal vehicle to slowly and safely move around camp. All exterior gates are locked at night for camper safety. Any trips offsite must be pre-arranged with the director.
Rev. Amy Meyer, pastor of First Presbyterian Church of Elgin, TX, shares why she and her husband have made attending JKR Family Camp a priority for their family.
