Your Gift Transforms Lives

There are several ways you can give financially to support the ministry of Camp Lone Star. Your financial partnership can help transform the lives of over 12,000 individuals who have a Camp experience annually. Here are some specific ways to give:

General Operating Fund

Your donation to our general operating fund is unrestricted and will further our mission by supporting Camp Lone Star’s greatest need at that time.

Cultivating Real Life Campaign

With this campaign being fully funded (through pledges), we continue to give God all thanks and glory! You can give towards your existing pledge here. Thank you for journeying with us!

Capital Improvement Fund

You can make a donation to help us fund capital improvements and general upkeep and maintenance needed at both our La Grange and Pines Campus.

Campership Fund

Giving the gift of Camp is one of the most impactful ways to support the ministry of Camp Lone Star. Each year, over $10,000 in scholarships are given to help individuals come to Camp who wouldn’t be able to otherwise afford it. The average scholarship given is $200.

Gifts are tax-deductible and can be made online or by check mailed to our La Grange campus:

2016 Camp Lone Star Road, La Grange, TX 78945

 

 

This GivingTuesday, we invite you to link arms with us and help us raise $165,000 to restore the Last Resort!



We invite you to link arms with us to restore the Last Resort! This two-sided cabin will provide housing space for our Junior Staff and open doors for us to serve nearly 200 more campers each summer!



Want to support Camp in a more consistent and intentional way? Members of the Development Council serve as supportive leaders of Camp Lone Star through prayer, advocacy, and financial giving.

 In May 2021, we launched the Cultivating Real Life Campaign to raise $7.8 million for four new staff homes and a new base camp dining hall that would advance ministry opportunities throughout our La Grange campus.


As a result of His blessing and the generosity of over 300 families, this campaign was fully funded in January 2023 and all the buildings are now in use!
