Goodbye from CLC
It is with a heavy heart that we have made the decision to close Camp Lantern Creek for good. As you all know, COVID-19 has had a significant impact on small businesses and we are no exception. Our team and our community have come together like never before this year to adapt to these changing times, and for that, we are deeply grateful.
While camp was always full of jokes and fun (and we know the timing is ironic with today being April Fool’s Day), we want to be very clear that, unfortunately, this is not a joke.
Our team will be sending refunds via mailed check to those currently registered for a summer 2021 session within the next 30 days. Please ensure your mailing address is correct in your CampInTouch account by April 7 in order to receive your refund. We appreciate your patience as we process refunds. In the meantime, the CLC staff will be signing off this weekend as we process this news and take time to grieve.
We will be donating all remaining camp merchandise at the end of April, so now is your
chance to visit our online store and stock up on reminders of your time at Camp Lantern Creek.
If you are looking for another camp for your daughter, we recommend Rocky River Ranch. This is where Piper fell in love with summer camp and it runs a similar model to what we created at Camp Lantern Creek. Spots are limited this summer, so do not delay registering if you are interested.
It has been our greatest joy to watch our campers grow, reach their potential, find their voices, celebrate both new achievements and great tries, all while building lifelong friendships. We hope that you, our Creeker community, will continue to cherish the memories and laughs we all experienced on our treasured campsite for years to come.
Farewell Festival at Camp Lantern Creek
We want to take a moment to thank you all for the recent outpouring of support, for sharing your memories with us and for showing us the kindness we’ve come to cherish most in our community.
While this is a bittersweet goodbye for us all, our goal is to focus on the sweet: the good times, the friends made and lessons learned at Camp Lantern Creek. We’re excited to announce that we’ll be hosting a Farewell Festival at camp on Saturday, May 15th! This is a time for our community to come together to enjoy camp one last time: see old friends, thank your leaders and directors, walk the campgrounds and celebrate the experiences we all shared. Campers and their families are encouraged to bring their own picnics and join us for a day of fun activities from 11-6. We’ll also be raffling off some of our prized CLC treasures for you to take home! Each raffle ticket will be $1 and all proceeds will go directly to one of our long-term partners, Girls Empowerment Network. Mark your calendars today and get ready to join the fun. See you all there!

Camp Lantern Creek
Tucked away on 100 acres in the piney woods of Montgomery, Texas, Camp Lantern Creek is the perfect location to host your company, school or church team building experience. CLC is also home to a unique all girls sleep away summer camp that was created so girls can find their voice, try new skills, be cheered on whether they succeed or fail, get dirty, push boundaries, love nature and so much more!
