  • A Tank
  • 5 Study Gazebos

The purpose of Tanglewood Christian Camp is to promote and conduct Christian education and benevolent activities, to operate a camp in which meetings are held, to instruct in Christian ideals and principles of faith and practice, to further the restoration of New Testament Christianity, its doctrine, its ordinances, its program and plea and its fruits and practice with the Bible as the only divine authority.

Under this guidance, faith, repentance, confession and an immersion in water of the penitent believer for the remission of sins shall be presented in the plan of salvation along with living the Christian life in accord with the Scriptures.

Tanglewood Christian Camp is located in Tanglewood, Texas between Lexington and Rockdale, Texas. Just off of highway 77, it is just 45 minutes from Temple and Bryan and merely 1 hour from Austin, College Station, and Temple, Texas.

Tanglewood Christian Camp is supported by 30 New Testament Independent Christian Churches and Church of Christ Churches. The camp is governed by 13 Executive Board Members from the supporting churches. There are two scheduled board meetings each year to set the camp dates and guidelines. If you are interested in becoming a supporting church please contact the camp.
