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.

Camp Fern Mother Daughter Weekend

Hello Friends and Family!

We are sad to announce that we will not be hosting a Mother Daughter Weekend for 2019. While we feel the event is a great time for families to experience some wholesome time at Camp Fern, we are unable to host this event for 2019.

Thank you to all of the families that have given your support for this event! We truly appreciate it. As we plan for 2020, we will keep you informed about the possibility of hosting a future Mother Daughter Weekend.

Join us at the 85th Camp Fern Alumni Reunion!

We are very thankful for another successful summer at Camp Fern and appreciate all God is doing in our ministry! We are also thankful for the amazing history we share with all those that have come through these Ferny gates.

We are grateful for every camper and staff member that has come through our programs and want this reunion to celebrate those relationships! We want this weekend to serve as a way to reconnect with the joy we share in community! Please join us for a fun-filled weekend of conversation, laughter, and fun in the sun!

As many of you know, Margaret has turned over daily operations of Camp Fern to William and Hilliard. We think this weekend is a great opportunity to celebrate all of the hard work and love that she has put into this place (and many of you!). Please come with lots of good stories and even memorabilia to help commemorate those experiences. Margaret is enjoyably refocusing on encouraging campers with hugs and high fives, Vespers talks, and keeping the Spirit of Camp Fern strong!

We hope you'll join us for an amazing time celebrating the blessings God shares with us through our time here at Fern!
