What is Day Camp?
Each year, the Texas Woman’s Missionary Union provides regional associations of Baptist churches with camp modules defining missions training and education for G.A. Camp. The Amarillo area Girls Missions Camp for Day Campers (grades K-3) is Monday, July 6, 2020. Drop off begins at 2:30pm* (COVID-19 update below)
Day Camp fosters discipleship and transformation in the lives of those attending, providing campers the tools to love the Lord with all their heart and mind.
Day Camp for girls (grades K-3) and friends involves a day of fun activities and fellowship designed to build a foundation in faith through Biblical and Gospel presentations as girls interact with leaders and missionaries from a variety of ministries. Campers enjoy a wide array of opportunities to celebrate the Great Commission!

Do not allow campers to attend Girls Camp if the camper exhibits signs of illness during the week prior to camp. To limit non-camper interactions at the retreat center, Day Campers are welcomed to join overnight campers on July 6 at 3:00pm. The decision whether the day camper stays until 8:30pm Monday or 3:00pm Thursday should be made by parents and sponsors. Day Campers who stay through Monday evening do not need overnight gear. The fee for Day Campers leaving Monday evening remains $35. Although parents are asked to stay outside or in their car, day campers will be picked up outside the conference center between 8:15 and 8:30pm.
For campers staying through Thursday, July 9, 3:00pm, camp fees are $150. Campers should also refer to the resident camp supply list.
