Family Camp Week provides a refreshing retreat time for families to enjoy together. The beauty and freedom of our rural camp setting, Christian ministry and fellowship, and a wealth of wholesome and fun activities to engage in, freed from many pressures and distractions of daily life, are the framework for a great family experience.

The daily schedule centers around morning and evening chapel times, featuring group singing and outstanding Bible teaching. We provide a separate children’s ministry program during the messages for campers ages 4-12, as well as a nursery.

 

 

When not in chapel or relishing a meal in the lodge (parents don’t have to cook!), our family campers spend the rest of their time enjoying the many activities provided, or just relaxing. Some of the activities typically available during the week include swimming, boating, fishing, horseback riding, craft projects, archery, rifle range, climbing tower, ropes course, zip line, and group games.

 

Often extended families meet up at Camp this week for a family reunion! We also have -generation families in attendance. We’re happy to house extended families in adjoining housing if desired.

Thomas Wheeler was called from a lucrative career as a Professional Engineer to teach and preach the Word of God. After being saved in 1982, he came into assembly fellowship in 1985 with the saints at Braeburn Bible Chapel in Houston, Texas. In 1995, he was given the opportunity to study at Dallas Theological Seminary. Thomas was commended to serve the Lord in 1998 in Southwest Houston, then in 2002 to an itinerant teaching ministry. The Lord Jesus has given Thomas a burden to edify His people through expository teaching that emphasizes not only the accurate handling of the Inspired Text, (2 Tim 2:15), but also demonstrating how one arrives at and validates the correct interpretation of that Text. Thomas serves by invitation, looking to the Lord as He faithfully guides the work, and is very grateful for the many dear and interesting people he has met along the way. He is also thankful for how the Lord continues to open new opportunities to challenge all to believe the Gospel, then to enjoy and grow in a living, vital relationship with Him through the knowledge and application of His Word (2 Cor 3:18). “The entrance of Thy Word giveth Light” (Ps.119:130). Thomas is single, and currently resides in Houston, TX.
