Welcome, Alumni!


The LLYC Alumni Program exists to help former campers and staff members continue the important relationships and life changes that came about during your summers in the Frio Canyon. We share the mission and vision of The H. E. Butt Family Foundation, which exists to serve God by providing opportunities for people to encounter God for the transformation of daily life, work, and our world.

The Theology of Technology (or that time my kid took Lego Robotics at LLFC)

My son signed up for a Lego Robotics session last summer during our week at LLFC. After a morning of biking and swimming, I was expecting another fun activity to fill a very hot afternoon. But it was so much more than that. Not only did my son love every second of this activity, but I (as a parent) was moved when I heard Marcus Goodyear (a full-time staffer from the Kerrville office and parent […]

How many summers did you spend in the Canyon? I started in 1970-72 as a camper, back in the days of Frog’s Airstream by the river; 1973 was my Work Crew summer, and in 1974/5 I was a counselor. I worked alongside Ted Williams for 2 years as a lifeguard and swimming/CPR instructor. Fast forward, and I did my first summer as a Camp Doctor in 1991, when we were still using the back porch […]

Swine ’09

When we think of camp, we think blue skies and laughs. But sometimes it rains or people get sick or someone breaks a bone. This is called a wrench and sometimes one gets thrown into the summer. In the summer of 2009, however, a full on hardware store was plopped on the Canyon when the Swine Flu full-on shut the joint down. We caught up with Kiri Issac who was on Work Crew during that […]
