In Greek, charis means grace and acceptance.
In today’s world, kids need more of both.

Located in the North Texas Hill Country area, Charis Hills is a Christian Summer Camp that offers kids, ages 7 to 18, with learning differences and social difficulties—those with ADD, ADHD, high-functioning Autism, Asperger's disorder, and other special needs—an opportunity to come to a place of acceptance. We provide a positive camp experience while sharing the good news about Jesus Christ.

During the camp experience, we focus on learning about Christ, improving social skills, boosting self esteem and confidence, and helping kids understand that their differences are neither uncommon nor debilitating. We play with purpose: we give kids access to traditional camp activities, combine recreation with learning, and help kids find greater success and fun in daily life.

We Tailor Our Program for YOUR Camper!


Charis Hills is dedicated to the development of kids with average to above-average intelligence who struggle to process information in traditional ways. Because our program is small—with only 50 campers per session and a 1:3 staff-to-camper ratio— we can tailor each camper’s experience to his or her needs and particular interests. 

  • Charis Hills staff utilize a positive behavioral program that focuses on specific goals for each individual camper. Each camper is assigned a Primary Counselor. Campers hear the gospel in a way that they can understand it without Christian jargon.

  • While we offer many traditional camp activities, some are designed specifically for our campers. Campers choose from over 25 different options.
