Deuteronomy 6 in the Real World

A special memory I will always have was when I first learned of Frontier Camp. I was in college at Tarleton State University and had recently made the decision to work at a Christian summer camp.  This was in order to see if that might be a good fit for me as a career. Shortly […]

Got a Little Story for You…and We Need Your Story Too

The most disturbing verse in the entire Bible is Judges 2:10 which says, “And after that whole generation had passed on, another generation grew up, who knew neither the Lord nor what He had done for Israel.” Can you imagine? The very generation whose sandals didn’t wear out after a 40-year hike, who crossed the […]

Certainty in the Face of Change

The older I get, the more evident it is that one of the constants in life is… change! There are a lot of things that are changing in the world around us all of the time. A lot of things have changed here in my 15 years on full-time staff at Frontier Camp. In fact, […]

How About S’more Campfires?

The smell of wood burning, the soft crackle of the fire in the night, the warm glow that makes shadows dance across the faces of those around the fire, and the heat emanating from the source. It’s a campfire. Texas TV. Most of you have spent some time there, in a folding chair, staring at […]

Meet The 2018-2019 FC Interns

Frontier Camp has (re)started an intern program this fall and we are blessed to have four great young adults as our first class of interns! We have been enjoying having them around camp since the end of the summer season, and figured it was about time we introduced them to everyone else in the FC […]

Keeping Your Eyes on the Prize

All through my childhood and teen years, I attended a weekly inductive Bible study with both of my parents. I remember the routine: come to the large chapel, find a seat in one of the old-school pews; an adult leader would greet everyone and then lead us all in several hymns chosen to correspond with […]

Sound Good?

Have you ever taken a fun trip down to Galveston? I’m not going to lie to you. One of my favorite parts of Galveston is the bridge on I-45. The bridge is more than a mile long! Without fail, as we are crossing the bridge, I always think, “How on earth did they build this? […]

Someone to Help You Up

At the beginning of this month I signed up for a community group fitness class. Right after I did, I texted my sister-in-law and asked her if she wanted to join me on this fun crazy escapade. To my delight, she said yes, and we’ve both been faithfully showing up twice a week ever since. […]

A Clean Heart

From even before I joined the staff in 2001, Scripture memory has been a part of Frontier Camp’s program. This past summer at Teen Camp, we challenged the teens to memorize 2 Corinthians 5:11-21. If any of your teens earned a memory verse pin, now is a good time to quiz them. I have never […]

Carry One Another’s Burdens

Every week at Teen Camp, campers participate in what we call the Titan Challenge. It is a fun activity that campers have come to love as they go through a set of challenges together and bond as a cabin. Some activities campers have to do on their own: throwing a spear into a hay bale, […]

Toilets & Gratitude for Servant Leadership

There is a clause in every Frontier Camp summer staff contract which says a staffer will “contribute in every way possible” to the ministry of Frontier Camp, and we ask our staff to serve and contribute in many different ways. This can, and does, include everything from cleaning toilets, dressing up in silly costumes, working […]
