Established in 1947, Cho-Yeh Camp and Conference Center is a premier Christian camp and retreat center in Livingston, TX. The name Cho-Yeh comes from the local Alabama-Coushatta Indian language and means "land of tall pines." For many years, Cho-Yeh has been a place where both young and mature have grown in their faith and character. We believe that the camp and retreat experience can be one of the most powerful and transformative times in a young person's life. While our mission statement is the lens through which we view all of our programs, our approach to ministry varies between our summer camp and retreat programs. Through summer camp, our goal in building the faith of our campers is not one driven by a conversion experience, but rather we hope to meet campers where they are in their faith and challenge them to grow in their relationship with Christ. Through guest retreats, we have a heart for the ministry of hospitality and work closely with group leaders to help them succeed in carrying out the goals of their retreat or event.
Camp Cho-Yeh has a full-time staff of over 25 people and a summer staff of over 200 counselors & support staff who are all dedicated to being safe, having fun, and helping people grow deeper in their relationship with Jesus Christ. Our campers and retreat guests come from all walks of life, denominations, and other organizations to enjoy our facilities and programs. Camp Cho-Yeh is accredited by the American Camping Association, a member of the Christian Camp and Conference Association, and is a member of the Better Business Bureau.
