Frontier's difference is our focus on relationships, value, small size, top-notch staff and giving campers their choice of activities. Our most popular activites are wakeboarding and horseback riding. FC has a rodeo every Thursday night and the kids love to ski, tube, weenie and wakeboard behind our fleet of competition ski boats. Executive Director Hans Meinardus is a geologist and loves to study creation. Summer campers love to go fossil hunting with Hans in hopes of finding a shark's tooth.
Frontier Camp is in the beautiful Pineywoods of East Texas on the shores of Houston County Lake. We are 2.5 hours from Houston and Dallas; 1.5 hours from Bryan/College Station and 3 hours from Austin. Tall pines, the lake and rolling hills make Frontier an ideal setting for summer camp or your next retreat.
We offer an Angel Tree camp for children of offenders and ex-offenders in partnership with Prison Fellowship Ministries, and we offer a "Timothy Week" for campers who don't have a father active in their life at the end of the summer in partnership with Psalm88five Ministry.
