Camp Fern has cancelled all regularly scheduled summer sessions. We apologize for the pain this causes for you and your families. Our hope and prayer is to return in 2023 and we are seeking God's plan daily.

Here is our prayer for you: The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace. Numbers 6:24-26 (ESV)

Summer Camp for Boys and Girls

Ages 6-16

Camp Fern is an overnight summer camp for children in East Texas with an enrollment limited to 150 campers per session. We really get to know all of our campers and consider them a part of our family! The summer consists of three separate sessions: Girls’ Camp, Coed Camp, and Boys’ Camp. The coed session is one week long and provides an exploratory camping experience, which really emphasizes fun and serves as an introduction to Camp Fern.

Both the Girls’ Camp and Boys’ Camp sessions are two or four weeks long and offer more advanced activities, special trips, and in-depth programs. Tribal (team) spirit and healthy competition play large roles at the two and four-week sessions.
