Our Goals:
  • To provide a Christian summer camp opportunity for adults 30 and up who need special assistance which can’t be provided in other camps
  • To provide respite for parents and siblings.
  • To provide a humbling and growing experience of Christian community to the staff.

SEEK Camp is a non-denominational Christian camp experience sponsored by the North Texas Conference of the United Methodist Church. Young Adult Camp is held at Prothro Retreat Center in Pottsboro, TX. This 5 day, 4 night camp is composed of 50 campers. The campers exhibit a wide variety of disabilities that range in severity from mild to severe.

The campers enjoy daily activities of arts and crafts, music, recreation, swimming and worship. In addition, each evening includes special activities such as horse back riding, ventriloquist shows, talent shows, a dance and other fun filled events.

Campers are placed in cabins with 7 other campers and 3 or 4 counselors. The needs of the campers vary from just hanging out to taking care of their most personal needs. A counselor is someone who is mature, has a heart for serving and is willing to put the world aside for one week and devote themselves to serve their camper no matter what the cost. 118 hours can be applied toward community service hours for school districts that encourage service to the community. Cost for counselors is paid in total by the churches of the North Texas Conference of the United Methodist Church.
