About Us

In the business of making disciples since 1945.

What We Do

Since its inception, Mt. Lebanon has been one of the largest Christian camps in Texas and has welcomed over a million guests through the gates. With a 1,200-person capacity for lodging, food service, education and recreation on over 500 scenic acres, the property and facilities provide an ideal setting for teaching, worship, fellowship, and spiritual growth for many types of groups. The Christian camping experience leaves life-changing, spiritual marks on the hearts of individuals and can set them on a life-long course for productive Christian living.

Our Story

┬áIn 1945 The Dallas Baptist Association accepted the generous gift of 520 wooded acres in Cedar Hill, Texas from Thomas W. and Pauline Patton for the development of a children’s and youth camp. The Baptist churches of Dallas and Rockwall county came together to build the infrastructure and buildings that immediately made Mt. Lebanon one of the largest camps in the nation.

Since those early days, over 1 million campers and retreat guests have passed through the gates of the camp and Mt. Lebanon hosts around 30,000 children, teens, and adults throughout the year. Dallas Baptist Association has developed Mt. Lebanon into a wonderful facility to host summer camps for children and youth, year-round retreats for persons of all ages, church staff leadership retreats, college ministry groups, and private/public school events or camps. The central location in southwest Dallas County is easily accessible by churches and other groups throughout North Texas and beyond.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide an environment that promotes spiritual development that will last a lifetime. We believe camp is a pivotal experience for children, youth and adults alike to disconnect from technology and reconnect with the Lord.
