Laity Lodge Family Camp takes place at Headwaters near the source of the Frio River on the H. E. Butt Foundation Camps, a 1,900-acre ranch deep in the Texas Hill Country, 13 miles north of Leakey on U.S. Highway 83. The camp is approximately 120 miles northwest of San Antonio and 60 miles west of Kerrville. Please watch for deer and other wildlife—especially if you are traveling at night. Also, there is only one small gas station available after leaving Kerrville.

Family means something different to everyone. From two people to ten people. From infants to grandparents. From married with no children to single with a dozen children. You are welcome at Family Camp.
A typical day at LLFC will include 3 meals with snacks and appetizers offered throughout the day, adults’ and kids’ devotional time, two activity times (see our activity descriptions), free time, Family Roundup and worship music in the evening, as well as a late night activity. Our schedule is subject to change, and you will receive a detailed schedule upon your arrival at camp. Sample schedules can be found here.
At LLFC, we provide opportunities to participate in a variety of activities designed to serve the desires and needs of your family. However, please know that we want you to maintain your individual freedom and flexibility so that you have the very best opportunities for your families’ enjoyment, connection, and relaxation. So whether you follow the schedule “to a T” or you decide to flex or simply rest, we are committed to giving you that environment and freedom.

Laity Lodge Family Camp sits on a 1,900-acre ranch purchased by Howard and Mary Holdsworth Butt in 1954. Howard was the president of the grocery company, which his mother started in Kerrville in 1905. Laity Lodge Family Camp took shape under the direction of their son, Howard Butt, Jr., and now the third generation, Deborah and David Rogers.
Our COVID-19 policies are written in pencil, not ink, and we adjust regularly as conditions allow. We have a working team that meets at least once per week to review our COVID policies in light of changing circumstances. We examine a range of regional data, including daily new cases, infection rate, positive test rate, local ICU capacity, vaccination percentage, and the relative vulnerability of our communities and the populations we are serving.
We also consult with trusted medical professionals who understand our unique camp and retreat environment and/or have infectious disease expertise. Additionally, we follow the guidance of the CDC and Texas Health and Human Services.
