Summer Adventure Youth Camps in Texas
This outfitter’s early goal was to offer a “Best in Class” hunting and fishing Summer Camp Adventure that would serve to not only recruit new hunters into the fold, but also to guide our youth to a stronger relationship with Christ through hands-on, in-the-field instruction in leadership, hunting and fishing skills. All counselors have strong Christian beliefs and are very successful in helping our campers grow spiritually and gaining a better appreciation for the Bible. And at the same time, they learn values and skills that will help them succeed in the world well beyond their camp experience. These youth programs have continued to develop, and have proven to be powerful, life-changing experiences for all involved.
This unique camp offers a week on a Texas Hunting Ranch, with an opportunity to harvest an exotic trophy, exotic doe, hog, or management ram. The Texas Hunter Education Course is offered at camp. Every day we spend time hunting, swimming, hanging out by the campfire and group devotional time with awesome kids and counselors! We have witnessed firsthand, the interpersonal skills the campers develop with their peers and counselors to help each other grow closer to Christ. Our job does not end when camp is over. Our counselors follow-up with our campers, many times building ongoing relationships, which is key to making disciples.
We encourage the campers to keep up their daily walk with Christ throughout the school year and eagerly await their stories at the next summer camp. COA strives to ensure that all of its activities adhere to strict safety standards. COA models its safety policies after the Texas Youth Hunting Program and other established and time-tested programs.
