Reviews for Camp Blessing Texas (Formerly Camp Barnabas Tx)
We have two boys who volunteer at Camp Blessing. While the camp was created to serve the campers, the volunteers come away with so much more. The leaders are all focused on growing both the campers and volunteers faith in our Lord. God's love is so evident from the moment you arrive. Both of our boys declare that their week at Camp Blessing is the "Best Week of Summer." They love spending time with the campers and are always disappointed when the week is over, as much as the campers. We love Camp Blessing and always encourage anyone with special needs to check it out because it is such a blessing to all who attend!!
Camp Blessing truly lives up to it's name-everything surrounding our camp experience was truly a blessing. From the amazing greeting campers receive upon arrival, to the staff team who not only love campers but also keep them safe, Camp Blessing incarnates the love of God for all. As the parent of a special needs teen, I could leave my son a camp knowing he would be well cared for, loved and celebrated for who he is. From drop off to pick up, I never had a worry because I knew our son would have a great time with all the fun activitiees and most importantly, would leave Camp Blessing knowing the deep and amazing love God has for him.
My son has attended Camp Blessing Texas for 2 years now. I am completely amazed by this camp! When you drive up, and your child gets out of the car, God takes over. Your kid feels it, you feel it, and their buddy feels it too! My son has severe CP and is non-verbal. At times, I think he may feel left out because you have to really work to get him involved with a group...but, not at Camp Blessing TX! I can guarantee you he feels a part of everything. Here's how I know: I have to de-camp him when he gets home. :) It takes about 1 week. As soon as he wakes up upon returning home, he is ready to go. After he eats, he looks at me like, "What's next, Mom?" Then he looks at me, "What are we going to do after that?" This goes on for a few days and just makes my heart smile! Thank you Camp Blessing Texas! The Hill Family
Camp Blessing is a God-send. They have the most amazing staff and directors and volunteers that will cater any person with any special need and make their summer one to never forget. As a parent, it provides my spouse and me a much-needed respite and we always have the utmost faith that our special-needs children are in the best of care while we recharge our batteries. God Bless Camp Blessing!
Camp Blessing is amazing! Our son has been a camper since the second year camp was offered. He has multiple disabilities. We know he will have a great time while he is at camp participating in activities he doesn't have the opportunity to enjoy any place else. The wonderful staff and volunteers give him the best care while he's there. It is the only time during the year my husband and I can spend several days with each other. Our daughter has also loved camp. She has gone for 4 years as a sibling and can't wait until she's old enough to be a Barn Stormer. It's a wonderful experience!

Both of my children have attended Camp Blessing and have benefited tremendously from their experience. My daughter attended as a camper and is counting the days until next summer. Although she has significant global development delays, she was able to ride horses, climb a rock wall and feel like a star in the camp talent show. The camp always has a trained medical professional to help with her medical needs.
My fourteen year old son attended as a volunteer; he cleaned cabins and bathrooms, served meals and played with the campers during their activities. He can't wait to go back next summer as well. I have seen such growth and compassion in the way he interacts with his younger sister since his week at Camp Blessing. It has made him a more tolerant, understanding, and kind young man.
Camp Blessing is an incredibly remarkable place for everyone who attends.
I was very reluctant sending my 7 year old son with Down syndrome to an overnight camp but I am glad I did because I was emotionally and spiritually touched by how he was taken care of and loved by all the staff. The directors, staff, volunteers, and his buddy were amazing not just with my son but with all kids and their parents. I highly recommend Camp Blessing!
CAMP BLESSING is an amazing place!!! The children are made to feel very accepted and they all have an awesome time!!! The love and attention that the people at this camp give to each child is overwhelming!!!

Camp Blessing is the place where I see Jesus most in our world. Every year I serve, I am amazed at the time and effort the staff puts in to make sure each summer of camp is a great experience for families. There is NO place that compares to CBTX and I consider myself very privileged to be a part of their mission during my summers.
My daughter Marissa who is special needs has been attending Camp Blessing for about 5 years. This camp has given her the opportunity to be more independent and to do so many things that other "typical" children can do. She absolutely LOVES Camp Blessing and looks forward to it every year. She Loves praising Jesus and being able to do so, so openly at Camp. The Staff and volunteers are so caring and genuine. I am so Happy that we found Camp Blessing. Marissa will be a lifelong camper.
