Who We Are

DISCOVERY CAMP began in 1989 as an age-appropriate summer camp program for both children and teenagers. It has become the largest full-gospel camp in America reaching over 20,000 each summer.

Pastors Tommy and Rachel Burchfield have dedicated over twenty-five years to building the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ through Burchfield Ministries International. Their home and ministry headquarters is Country Camp in Columbus, Texas where gathering churches, loving pastors and networking leaders have earned them international respect. Their children, Andrew, Peter, and Abby are also involved in ministry.

Discovery Camp resides on a 1,088-acre Christian retreat center and ministry headquarters located in Columbus, Texas. The campus includes housing for 1,100 campers, full recreational facilities and summer resident quarters for over 200 staff employees, interns, and ministry families. Three waterslides, go-carts, horses and age-appropriate activities will remind your group just how much fun it is to be a Christian. With over 200 staff and interns, our wonderful DC team love the campers and are committed to a safe and fun summer.
