Camp Capers is a ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of West Texas located at 418 FM 1621, Waring, TX 78074 (www.dwtx.org). Without traffic, it takes about two hours to drive from Austin to this beautiful spot in the hill country. We recommend carpooling as you feel comfortable.

Lodging is in hotel-style rooms, each of which has two queen-size beds. Participants may room alone or with one, two, or three roommates. Please list your roommate preferences on the registration form, or note that you would like to be matched with roommates.

Five meals in the dining hall at Camp Capers are included in the retreat cost, beginning with dinner on Friday at 7 p.m. Please let us know if you will arrive late on Friday – we can have your dinner boxed so you can enjoy your meal when you arrive. Camp Capers has excellent food and can accommodate a variety of dietary restrictions. Please note your needs on the registration form.

COVID precautions will be finalized closer to the time of the retreat and included in the packet you receive the week of. Right now, Camp Capers is requiring masks in indoor gathering spaces and social distancing in the dining hall (there is outdoor seating at the dining hall, weather permitting). We encourage all participants to take a COVID test within 48 hours of leaving for the retreat. If you have any symptoms the week of the retreat, please inform Pastor Ellen and plan to stay home.
