Nestled amidst beauty, Founded on fun, Rooted in faith

The vision of the Episcopal Diocese of West Texas Camps and Conference Centers is to remain a premier provider of experiences in the outdoors, grounded in the Christian faith and Episcopalian tradition, where children, youth, and adults work, play, and grow together as they develop a community of trust, openness, and sharing. Our camp and conference centers include Camp Capers in the Texas Hill Country, Mustang Island Conference along the Texas Gulf Coast, and Duncan Park in the Colorado Rocky Mountains.

Camp Capers

Camp Capers is a riverside camp and conference center, nestled on 188 acres in the Texas Hill Country, 40 miles northwest of San Antonio on the banks of the Guadalupe River. Camp Capers offers summer camp programming for youth 8 to 18 years of age, and attend sessions within age groups. Sessions activities include kayaking, team building challenges, a high ropes course, crafts, Bible based teaching and devotional times, and more. Through God’s grace, Camp Capers is committed to offering fun, life-changing experiences to children and youth in a safe, Christian community.

Mustang Island Conference Center

Mustang Island Conference Center is a seaside retreat center on 22 acres between Corpus Christi Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. The conference center provides a sacred place that offers our guests rest, reflection, and renewal surrounded by God’s coastal creation. Mustang Island Family Camp sessions take place in the summer, beginning on Thursday afternoons and concluding with Sunday Worship and lunch. As a family, enjoy swimming, sand castle building, surfing, arts and crafts, family-style meals, beach games, campfire on the beach, worship, biblically based teaching, and much more. The conference center is also open year-round, and serves all God’s children as a ministry of Christian hospitality to all.

Duncan Park

Duncan Park is a mountaintop get away, located 20 miles west of Boulder, Colorado. This alpine jewel captures the rugged beauty of the surrounding mountains and allows for a true respite from the hustle and bustle of modern life, existing completely off-the-grid with solar panels for electricity, no cell phone service, and drinking water drawn from its own well. Duncan Park offers summer camp sessions for junior high, high school, college students and adults, plus several Family Camp sessions, and hosts retreat weekends for churches, family reunions, and other groups.
