Austin’s Most Fun Summer Camp

With unique activities and traditions, CBS is the perfect place for your camper to call home.

Parent Testimonials

Please take a moment to read what our parents have to say about CBS:

“Each year, we think it can’t be better than last year –but it is!! Robert has gone on and on about his cabin, his incredible counselors and how it was the best year yet. It is astonishing to me how, each year, CBS finds such fine, young men to serve as counselors! How and where do you find them? Robert has been blessed to have these experiences – and we treasure the fact that you have helped put those people and experiences in his life. We are forever thankful.” -Margaret L.

“My daughter cried when we picked her up again this year! She lives for her camp experience every summer. She says it is her favorite place in the world to be and that she can truly be herself while at camp. Every year my husband and I are so impressed with CBS and the overwhelmingly wonderful time our daughter has. She also comes home having grown both spiritually and emotionally. She always returns just a little more independent and confident. It is truly a blessing to be able to send our daughter to you every summer.” Liz S.
