Foundation Camps will resume in August 2021.


For 2021, the majority of our groups have been rebooked from 2020 retreat cancellations due to COVID-19. Our registrar will reach out to these group leaders in early March and again in late May.


At this time, we don’t have any additional openings for Foundation Camp groups in 2021. Follow the H. E. Butt Foundation on Facebook or Instagram and subscribe to our Echoes magazine to stay abreast of future registration opportunities for Foundation Camps and other programs. Stick with us as we navigate these unusual times and email us if you have any questions.

COVID-19 Precautions

Foundation Camps may look different in 2021, but groups will still enjoy the Frio River Canyon!

Our staff will work with group leaders to provide safe and fun opportunities for campers to enjoy time together at the H. E. Butt Foundation Camps. We are taking COVID-19 precautions seriously and continue to watch the situation closely. We will be following and enforcing the safety protocols listed below. Note, these protocols are subject to change based on recommendations from the CDC. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us.
