You got questions, we got the answers.
Since 1989, Discovery Camp has provided a 3-day, 4-day and 5-day summer camp program for church groups across America. The success of our Kids Camps (7 -12 yrs.) and Youth Camps (13-17 yrs) earned Discovery Camp the respected reputation as “the largest Full-Gospel camp in America” reaching thousands of church groups. We know that nothing takes the place of the anointing of Jesus Christ, which is why we put such a strong focus on it! With thirty years of experience, we design each camp for maximum age-appropriate ministry. Relatable teachings, workshops, food, sports tournaments, waterslides, fun and much more are always provided. “Miracle Services” happen nightly where altars are packed and life changing moments occur. Discovery Camp provides children and teens the opportunity to “Discover the Difference” that Jesus Christ can make during the most fun week of their summer!

Discovery Camp offers two types of summer camp programs:
Kids Camps: (Ages 7 -12)
Youth Camps: (Ages 13 -17)
During our Youth Camps, children (ages 3-10) of the youth camp chaperones are welcome to enjoy our ‘DC Adventure Zone’ program. This program was created to take care of the youngsters while the adults are in sessions through the camp experience.
Children 2 or under are permitted free of charge, but will need a Health & Registration form. Children 3 or under are welcome to stay in the female dorm with parent or guardian; all other ages must stay in the dormitory that corresponds with their gender.
Discovery Camp sessions are hosted at beautiful Country Camp, a 1088-acre Christian Conference Center with a 1,000 seat capacity venue named Ambassadors’ Hall, Smiley’s Dining Hall, A/C dorms, concessions, 440 foot long waterslide, 52 foot high double-waterslide, horseback rides*, go-cart*, rock wall*, swimming pool, sand volleyball courts, basketball courts, archery, Champion’s Course (obstacle course), and the Gear Shop for souvenirs and leadership materials. Additional electives are usually complementary and might include activities such as individual sports, arts and crafts, and talent performance driven sessions. Special Leadership Sessions are conducted for all adult leaders during each camp visit. (*Some activities are at an additional charge.)
Basic Biblical principles are adhered to with a Spirit-filled atmosphere emphasizing redemptive truths encouraging children and youth to an intimate, personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. Salvation, Lordship, Inspiration of the Scriptures and the Baptism of the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in tongues is also presented.
When a church group is interested in attending Discovery Camp, the process is easy and efficient:
- Select a person to represent your church group as the Group Contact.
The Group Contact selects the event of choice at DiscoveryCamp.org/register.
- A credit card will need to remain on file.
- A Group Confirmation Code will be emailed to the Group Contact with a Sign-Up Code to give to all who plan to attend.
- Campers use their Sign-Up Code to fill out the Camper Reservation Form via online or paper form.
- The Group Contact will submit the Agreement Form and Deposit ten (10) business days before the start of the event.
- Arrive and check-in at Discovery Camp on the day of the event and be blessed.
After your reservation has been confirmed by our Reservation Offices, the Group Contact will receive an email with a confirmation code. The confirmation code will provide you with your Sign Up code as well as the dates you will need for your Agreement Form. The Confirmation Code is utilized as the key acknowledgment from Country Camp that we are expecting your group to join us for the upcoming event.
Group Agreement Form
A Group Agreement Form is connected to each group reservation and creates an agreement between Discovery Camp and the church group desiring to come to an event hosted by Country Camp. Group Agreement Forms go into effect ten (10) business days prior to the event. The Agreement Form brings a mutual understanding between all parties of the following areas:
- Group’s confirmed dates
- Group Contact
- Registration rate
- Total count of individuals coming with the group
- Due date for deposit
- Agreement & Releases
Adult volunteers that attend with your group should be 18 years of age and older. Each group is responsible to provide adult leadership at a ratio of 1 to 8 (Kids Camps) and 1 to 10 (Youth Camps).
Each attending adult is considered a “Camper” while attending the program and must undergo a State-of-Texas required Child Abuse Prevention course (conducted at your church), as well as have completed a thorough background check, completed by our Reservations Department.
We’ve said it for years, “Sometimes the adults think they are bringing the kids to camp, but really it’s the kids who are bringing you to camp.” We believe adults can be refilled and refreshed as campers during Discovery Camp.
