Camp Nikos East Austin Youth

Kids from Austin’s low-income communities don’t always get the chance to just be kids.

86% of homes throughout East Austin are classified as low- or moderate-income. In many cases, teens must take on jobs and adult responsibilities to help make ends meet.

Camp Nikos in Austin provides a place for kids to just be kids.

They can engage in fun activities like canoeing, ziplining, crafting, and swimming while enriching their relationship with God and each other.

Research shows afterschool enrichment with clubs and camps can help kids improve their grades while reducing their risk of following dangerous paths.

Children and teens from Austin’s under-resourced communities have a safe place at Camp Nikos. We have something for everyone! Our camps focus on building Christ-centered relationships for kids ages 6 to 18.

Mission Possible is so loving and caring. They are with you through the good times and the bad. I love Camp Nikos. It teaches me more about Jesus and helps me show the kids why they are here.” ~ Tyte

Camp Nikos for Ages 13-18

Mission Possible offers two Camp Nikos sessions for teens: one in the summer and another in the fall.

Camp Nikos for teens focuses on building deeper discipleship and leadership skills.

During our summer, teens stay at H.E. Butt Foundation camp where they can enjoy the beauty of Texas while building closer relationships with Christ and each other.

Meanwhile, fall campers experience a weekend retreat in one of Austin’s surrounding parks at our FUZE fall retreat.

The goal is to prepare teens for a successful life beyond Mission Possible. Many of our teenagers go on to fill leadership roles at MP as volunteers and camp counselors themselves!
