Activities we offer

At His Hill, your children will have the opportunity to participate in six of the ten activities that we offer. Not only will they have cabin devotions and chapel, but they will also get to learn about the character of Christ Jesus while enjoying exciting activities. Below you may find a description of each. 

  • Archery

    Campers can participate in the adventurous activity of archery where they learn the parts of the bow, target shoot, and go an a trail hunt to shoot at foam animal targets. Archery brings a sense of adventure in a well monitored and safe environment that teaches kids bow safety and wilderness terrain safety.

  • Canoeing

    Our waterfront-First Aid & CPR Certified lifeguards lead canoers down the Guadalupe under the shade of the towering Cypress trees. After J-stroking their way down the river, campers can jump off the giant stump, skip rocks, build dams, catch minnows and “titanic” their canoes. This fun and relaxing activity is an adventure into nature where various plants and animals are often found. Campers leave with a better understanding of water safety, canoe technique and an appreciation for the beauty of God's creation.  

  • crafts

    Under the cool shade of our craft shack, overlooking the gorgeous canyon, campers are able to participate in various crafting projects. Using their creativity, campers create crafts such as clay-projects, bird feeders, and bracelets.

  • Horseback Riding

    Campers will learn horsemanship as they participate in trail rides through the meadow on our very own horses. Campers also learn to do vaulting, which is gymnastics on a horse, by first practicing on “Big Red,” our stationary horse. They are then able to preform these tricks in our horse arena while assisted by our wranglers. Our head wrangler is CHA certified and provides a safe and fun opportunity for the beginner and experienced horseman alike. 

  • Low Elements

    Low Elements is a fun mix of team building activities in the cool canyon that promote creativity, problem solving and patience. On the first day campers work together to accomplish challenging tasks while encouraging one another in these endeavors. Challenges like the Wall, Trust Fall, Whale Watch, Tornado Tube, Invisible Map, and the Telephone Pole Shuffle are a few of the many activities of the low elements course. Participants may also have the opportunity to engage in an epic competition using our marshmallow guns (formerly used in our Team Cup activity).

  • Riflery

    A highly supervised, non-competitive environment where campers learn to shoot .22 single shot rifles, enabling them to learn gun and hunter safety while fostering discipline and coordination. Trained counselors instruct participants as they aim for targets, which they can bring home with them as a memento and exhibit of their riflery skills.

  • Swimming

    Our pool provides a fun activity to cool down during the sunny days of summer. Whether campers would like to lounge poolside or complete various challenges such as “Race the Lifeguard”, our swimming activity is a great place to learn new swimming skills under the supervision of our Waterfront- First Aid & CPR Certified lifeguards.

  • Tower Challenge

    Our 40-foot tower is an exhilarating activity that includes rappelling, wall climbing, zip-lines, “The Screamer” and “The Leap of Faith.” Our instructors are ropes course certified and all of our equipment is carefully inspected. Campers once afraid of heights have learned what trust looks like in a practical way and have come to find that Christ can be trusted in all things.
