Texas Baptist Camp


Located on the beautiful Gulf Coast of Southeast Texas and on the shores of Tres Palacios Bay, an inlet of the Gulf of Mexico, and halfway between Galveston and Corpus Christi, TBE enjoys the beauty of God’s creation and an exceptional climate, year-round.  In existence since 1902, making it the oldest camp west of the Mississippi River, TBE has a diverse array of high-quality facilities, a very accommodating servant-hearted staff, an especially unique & picturesque waterfront, and a friendly atmosphere and laid-back personality. 2019 will be the first year that Texas Baptist  FUGE Camps.

Texas Baptist will be offering Centrifuge.
