Based on information the camps staff are receiving from local, state and the national government, the American Camp Association and CDC, Episcopal Church, Camp, and Conference Association, our local pediatrician and other camps in Texas and across the nation, the following decisions have been made regarding DWTX ‘s 2020 summer camp ministry.
Mustang Island Conference Center will cancel Session 1 and Session 2 of Family Camp and begin the summer with Family Camp Session 3 on June 11, 2020. Open Family Camp sessions are listed below.
Camp Capers will cancel all “A” Session Summer Camp sessions and begin the summer with Senior High Camp B on July 5, 2020. Open Camp Capers sessions are listed below.

Camper families who have already registered for a cancelled session at Camp Capers, Mustang Island Conference Center, or Duncan Park can contact the camp offices directly (information listed below) to transfer their session registration to a different 2020 or 2021 session, request a full refund of paid registration fees, or choose to donate registration fees to the Camps Scholarship Fund.
The camp staff worked together to consider comprehensively the many factors that inform these difficult decisions, prioritizing camper and staff safety above all else. Since the pandemic is constantly changing and new information is presented daily, further adaptations may be announced as the summer progresses.
The 2020 ongoing summer programs will look different as each camp program implements new, stringent guidelines to protect the health and safety of the camp community. Contact Rob Watson, Director of Camps & Conferences, or the staff listed below, with further questions.
