Support Camp Scholarships during the Big Give 2023, September 20 - 21!

The Big Give 2023 is almost here! The Camps & Conferences Department of the Episcopal Diocese of West Texas invites you to participate in The Big Give - an online day of giving to support nonprofit organizations in South Central Texas beginning at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 20, through 6:00 p.m. Friday, September 21.

"Our camping program is incredibly unique because of its diversity in programming - from a traditional camping experience at Camp Capers, sessions that just host families at Mustang Island Family Camp, and a wilderness camping experience at Duncan Park.” Rob Watson, Director of Camps & Conferences.

Proceeds from The Big Give 2023 will fund camper scholarships, providing safe opportunities for members of our congregations and our broader communities to deepen their faith and experience the transformative love of Christ through our programs - this year, and for many more years to come.

Together we can equip young people and families in our community with the emotional, social, and spiritual tools to transform the world and sustain the future of the church. Watch the video below to learn more about the amazing impact of camp on individuals and families.
