Glen Lake Camp and Retreat Center is located in Glen Rose, Texas and is an extension ministry of the Central Texas United Methodist Conference. Our camp is located on the Paluxy River where retreats and campers experience the beautiful Texas hills while staying comfortable in our many cabins, lodges and education facilities.
Our unique, faith-based summer camp welcomes children, students, volunteers, and their families from all over the nation to experience God in fun-filled adventures and a journey creating disciples of Christ for the transformation of the world!

Family Camp is a great way to introduce your family and first time campers to camp! Your family must have at least one going into K-3rd camper and one parent/guardian to attend. Glen Lake Camp has reserved the necessary hotel rooms to serve family lodging needs. Glen Lake will take care of all hotel reservations and will be at the hotel when families arrive for Family Camp. We will send directions to the hotel one week before the event. The hotel will also provide breakfast meals each morning. We hope these accommodations will allow for families to continue to enjoy the private hotel space for family lodging needs.
Your family will be introduced to the camp experience with all worship and activities taking place at the camp. Camp activities include worship, fishing, swimming, canoeing, hiking, crafts, and small group activities. This includes a T-Shirt.
