At Camp Balcones Springs our mission is to change lives for the better through fun, relationships, and spiritual impact. As a camp dedicated to impacting lives spiritually we value genuine faith lived out in an authentic way.

We strive to inspire our campers to become people of integrity and character, who exhibit qualities of courage, honesty, compassion, and self-discipline.

Our Facilities

The centerpiece of Camp Balcones Springs is Lake Ted, a private ten-acre spring-fed lake that is filled with cool, clear water. Nestled in a canyon high above Lake Travis, Lake Ted is perfect for swimming, blobbing, canoeing, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding and is fully equipped with inflatables, a water trampoline, water slides, and Balcones Beach!

Our camp cabins have attached bathrooms, ceiling fans, and AIR CONDITIONING! Check out our interactive map to see the inside of our comfortable cabins.

We have an onsite kitchen fully staffed and led by full time, professional chefs that ensure campers get nutritious, well-rounded hot meals throughout their time at camp. Due to our onsite staff, we are able to accommodate any food allergies and other dietary restrictions, including gluten intolerance, red dye and more.
