Cross Trails Ministry Summer Camping

Peace has a long tradition of nurturing our youth and families through the programs of Cross Trails Ministry. Their two camps are in the Texas Hill Country; Ebert Ranch a little west of Fredericksburg and Camp Chrysalis just south of Kerrville. Both camps are a fun way to grow, explore, and have fun in a God-centered environment. Youth often form friendships that last a lifetime. This year’s theme is “God in Action.” Our youth will explore how God calls each of us to do God’s work in the world – everyone has a part when God is in Action!

Confirmation camp is for youth going into seventh and eighth grades in August.

This year our confirmation student is Haegan Donovan, with Mckayla Cox and Bailey Donovan, who will confirm their baptism this Sunday, enjoying the 3rd year of Confirmation camp July 7-12 at Ebert Ranch.

Ebert Ranch Camp has 465 acres with rolling hills, picturesque oaks, wide skies, and a cool breeze. Campers have the opportunity to ride horses, climb on the high ropes course, camp out under the stars and explore their faith in a unique Christian community.

Two of our youth will be at Camp Chrysalis as Yearlings. Yearlings have completed 4th-6th grades. Quinn Cline and Kaden O’Rourke are our Yearlings this year – Quinn will be at Chrysalis July 21-26 and Kaden O’Rourke June 16-21.

Camp Chrysalis has a traditional summer camp feel with open fields for playing, a pool and cool creek for swimming, room for plenty of activities like archery, arts and crafts, ropes courses, hiking, and outdoor games, plus the ever-popular gaga ball.

The camp is available for those who have finished first through eleventh grades. As of this writing, there is a fair amount of availability at both camps. For more information and to register for camp, go to

Cross Trails Ministry is committed to helping all those who’d like to participate in camp but who can’t afford the full fee.  For information on financial aid contact Jacob during church office hours at, or call Cross Trails Ministry office at 830-257-6340.
