Still Water Camps was founded to bridge the gap between the “have” and “have nots,” with the goal of offering all students the opportunity to attend a high quality summer camp regardless of their socioeconomic status/background. On April 15th, they hosted their Fiesta Dinner at Weston Centre to raise funds to cover the cost of their San Antonio campers who will be coming out this summer (2021) on scholarships.
The team at Weston Centre is pleased to have played a role in facilitating this event. And we are even more pleased to share that through the generosity of all who attended the event, their fundraising goals were met!
Get to Know Still Water Camps
Still Water Camps started as an overnight sports camp more than 20 years ago. During that time, they have evolved to reach a wider group of students. They now offer Sports, Adventure, and Leadership camps, along with family camps, day camps, and weekend retreats. Over the next five to ten years, Still Water Camps has even bigger goals and plans for growth!
The team at Still Water Camps purchased a 145-acre property in Harper, Texas about five years ago. At the time, the property had a small bathroom and nothing else. Now, that same property is home to bunk cabins, sports fields, waterfront inflatables/slides/rope swings, sand volleyball court, bath houses, and more to be able to host their overnight camps.
Over the coming years, they plan to continue to enhance the camp experience for their campers. This involves adding features like a covered basketball court, a climate controlled indoor meeting space, and expanding their camp capacity by adding additional bunk and bath houses.
Additionally, they plan to grow their staff to help them fulfill their mission. This includes having an area director in every major city, including two to four in the San Antonio area alone.
