The Wanted Campference is all about nurturing a weary soul, refreshing a thristy spirit and connecting with others in a way that only like “going to camp” can do. The Wanted Campference is set in the beautiful Texas Hill Country on the headwaters of the Frio River at the H.E.Butt Foundation Camp.

Basically, it’s camp for grownups.  You will hear wonderful speakers, eat incredible food, go to fun activities, connect with other women, attend a handmade market and just find a place to rest getting your needs met however that works best for you.

The Wanted Campference women’s retreat was born out of a love for going to summer camp and the need to know we are all “wanted by God.”
