Our Mission

Camp Powers exists as a sacred place for the stories of children, teens, and adults as they respond to the call of Christ.  Camp Powers provides opportunities for self-directed Christian camps and retreats. Located just outside of Nacogdoches, Texas, we are a great location for a camp or retreat of up to 150 people.  For more than 50 years, this campground has been a part of the story of children, teens, and adults in their spiritual formation.
