Camp Buckner

For more than 20 years, Camp Buckner has been the scenic backdrop for changed lives. Thousands of children and teenagers have experienced God’s love for the first time through our summer camping ministry. And thousands of adults have been rejuvenated and restored through our retreat services.  Nestled in the heart of the Texas Hill Country, Camp Buckner offers a variety of housing options to meet the needs of any group, whether young or old, large or small.

Camp Buckner is part of Buckner International, a diverse global ministry to orphans and at-risk children and families. Established in 1879, Buckner has answered children's needs throughout our history. Today, our services include a global humanitarian aid program, volunteer mission opportunities, community enrichment and prevention programs, an international network of foster care and transitional housing services, domestic and international adoption, support programs for children living in orphanages in other countries, five retirement communities and a Christian retreat and camping ministry.
