We are always happy to partner with T Bar M Camps! In this sponsored post, T Bar M shares with ACMB readers how to make summer matter with camp.
With summer around the corner, making plans can be a bit overwhelming. Our kids are given roughly 13 free weeks of the year, and as parents, we want to invest those weeks where it’s worth it. So, how do we prioritize their time and summer experiences in a way that will continue to shape them into the young men and women we hope they will be? Camp provides a unique environment that cultivates relationships, builds confidence, and reinforces what we value as parents, all without wasting an ounce of fun!
“Summer is three months of shaping our kids into the adults we desire them to be.”
There is no getting around them: relationships are a part of life, and they always will be. At T Bar M Camps, we believe relationships have the power to change campers’ lives forever. Therefore, we make them count. We recruit passionate college students, screening them through an intense application and interview process, for your child’s care and safety. Our full-time staff focuses its time and energy training and investing in the lives of these college staff members, equipping them to do the same for the best interest of your camper. The Power of Camp concludes, “Many campers point back to a positive role model they met at camp as one who helped shape the direction of their lives.” We are confident the relationship between a camper and their camp “coach” is a launching point for other healthy relationships to form, develop, and thrive.
Our kids’ summer is simply part of the bigger picture of raising them well. As parents, we want our kids to grow into adults who are responsible, teachable, and kind. At camp, kids get away from home, put away their phones, and step outside what is comfortable into an environment where tremendous growth happens. With the goal in mind for kids “to grow in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and man,” camp is full of rich opportunities that stretch campers’ minds, develop their independence, and nurture their bodies and souls. Camp yields the growth we want for our kids.

Summer days can stretch pretty long when we’re attempting to keep our kids entertained. At T Bar M Camps, without wasting an ounce of fun, we make the most of each moment, playing with purpose. From sunrise to lights out, a camper’s day is planned, prepared for, and played out with intentional thought. Even meal times, while marked by silly songs and traditions, are centered on sitting together around a big wooden table, serving one another. From the sports field to the lake and the ropes course to the blog, campers are trying new things, encouraging one another, and learning from triumphs and defeats while applying these experiences to real life. There is a different kind of fun experienced at camp where campers are liberated from the pressures of their peers and grow confidence in their own skin.
Summer is three months of shaping our kids into the adults we desire them to be. And while those three months are a bit more fun, relaxed, and sun-baked than the rest of the year, let’s make summer matter for our kids. How you spend your summer is important. Make camp a priority today!
Camp is one of the most lasting, rewarding experiences parents can give their children. T Bar M Camps builds self-esteem and gives kids a sense of independence all while growing their faith.
