Can my child request a roommate? How many requests can be made?
Yes, requests must be mutual and campers may not be more than one year apart in age. You may request up to two roommates. We do not guarantee roommate requests, although we try our best to put friends together. One of the real benefits of camp is meeting and making new friends from different places! Encourage your child to get to know new people during their time at camp.
What are the cabins like?
Rustic, screened in cabins with 4-5 bunk beds. There is no air conditioning so we encourage you to bring a fan for your camper. Since the cabins have shutters with screens the nights are normally cool.
How many campers/counselors are in a cabin?
Cabins and our “Ark” will house 7-10 campers. There will never be more than 7 campers with one counselor in a cabin.
How can I get in touch with my child while they're in camp?
You may email your children at [email protected] ($5 is deducted from their snack bar accounts). If there is an emergency, please call the office.
What activities are available for the campers?
During registration you’ll see a list of 8 activities for your child to choose from, in order of preference. You may also note during registration if there is a particular activity the camper does not wish to participate in. Activities are given on a first come – first serve basis. Activity choices are not guaranteed. If campers do not select activities two weeks prior to their arrival, we will select them for the camper.
Activities include: Tower Challenge, Swimming, Canoeing, Horseback riding, Crafts, Low Elements, Riflery, Archery.
Campers attending High School Week and Day Camp do not need to choose activity selections.
Does His Hill accommodate food allergies and/or dietary needs?
The His Hill kitchen is not a gluten free kitchen. We are unable to personally provide food to accommodate dietary needs such as lactose/gluten intolerance. We do, however, allow parents to provide pre-cooked, clearly labeled food and our Kitchen Manager will gladly reheat the food to serve your child. We appreciate your cooperation! Please contact us with specific questions or requests.
How much money for snack bar?
$20-$30 is the average amount parents give their camper for snack bar. Any remaining balance is available to claim at closing ceremonies or donate to our summer staff volunteer fund
How long has His Hill been a camp?
1976 was our first summer!
Where are you located?
Two miles off of I-10 in Comfort—about 35 minutes West of The Rim in San Antonio.
Should my child eat dinner before coming to Sunday's registration?

Will my child eat dinner on Friday?
Yes! We provide dinner for all campers before our closing ceremony.
How do you hire staff?
Volunteers mainly consist of our Bible School students (or an affiliated Bible School) that we have known for at least 9 months. All summer staff must fill out an application with a background check and multiple references.

Canceling within one week of arrival will forfeit the entire camp fee unless the vacancy is filled by another camper. A full refund minus deposit will be given if cancellation is for a medical or family emergency. If a camper is removed from His Hill due to breaking our code of conduct, there will be no refund. Campers leaving His Hill due to homesickness will not receive a refund.
