A Treasured Heritage


Throughout Texas and the Southwest, stories of what God has done in the hearts of His people throughout the years during camp services are repeated with grateful hearts. God has truly blessed the ministry of Lake Texoma Baptist Youth Camp. It is a camp with a treasured heritage and a bright future.

From its simple beginnings, Lake Texoma Baptist Youth Camp has seen thousands of young people pass through its gates. Only eternity will reveal the impact that Lake Texoma has made on people’s lives. The initial funds that led to the building of this camp were derived from the sale of a house that was donated by Mrs. Pearl Russell. Pastor Loys Vess, Pastor Lester Singleton, and Pastor Wayne Imboden received the deed and used the funds to start the Lake Texoma Baptist Youth Camp in 1953.

A Bright Future

In the fall of 2009, the Temple Baptist Church in Powell, Tennessee assumed ownership of the property under the direction of Pastor Clarence Sexton. We are excited to see the camp ministry continue to move forward. Please pray for and be involved in this vital work.
