Valley Baptist Retreat is located in South Texas. We are only 25 min from the Mexican border, where you can find many ministry opportunities to serve the people in need; and only 90 min from South Padre Island, the most beautiful beach in Texas.
Valley Baptist Retreat is part of Valley Baptist Missions and Education Center (VBMEC) family of camps and we are committed to be a place where you can find Christ and grow your faith through meaningful missionary activities and outdoor adventures.
Our weather varies from 52 to 105 throughout the year, making us a great destination to host groups at any time in the year. The Rio Grande Valley is well known for its tropical weather and citrus, our camp has 10 acres of citrus trees.
During fall and winter, our Winter Texans Ministry is bustling. Local churches continually use VBR to host events such weekend retreats, conferences, picnics, banquets and more.
Our facility is open year-round and our team will be happy to help you coordinate missionary work for your organization if needed.
