Camp Capers

Camp Capers is an Episcopal camp located in the Texas Hill Country in the Diocese of West Texas. 

An atmosphere of caring and acceptance pervades the camp programs of the Episcopal Diocese of West Texas. Children, youth and adults work, play and grow together as they develop a community of trust, openness and sharing. Participants are challenged to grow spiritually, physically, emotionally and socially. Opportunities abound for making new friends, meeting people from across the state, learning new skills, taking responsibility for oneself, others and God's world, and having lots and lots of fun! The Episcopal Diocese of West Texas seeks to provide opportunities for people of all ages to encounter transforming relationships with Jesus Christ. Every participant and staff member is nurtured and cared for as a valued member of the Body of Christ.

Camp Capers is located in Waring, TX, an hour north of San Antonio, following I-10 West. Camp Capers Main Gate is our entrance during Summer Camp and for retreat guests. For service gate access, please contact the office before driving to Camp Capers, as some cell phone service plans have unreliable coverage near the gate. If you are arriving after dark, there are red reflectors on the road and a red reflective C at the entrance. Once you arrive, you will turn in and drive 1/2 mile (past St. Francis Chapel) to the Elder Family Welcome Center.
