Hill Country / Weekend Adventures

Jill’s House: Hill Country

Jill’s House has partnered with Camp Buckner to bring the Weekend Adventure program to the Austin area!  At Camp Buckner, you’ll enjoy great camping activities – archery, swimming, canoes, hiking, hayride, s’mores, low ropes course, obstacle course, zip line, and more.

Accommodations & Care

Hill Country’s Local Program Supervisor Alexa Hallen and her trained staff of child care specialists and nurses  are always available to ensure the campers’ safety and provide guidance to the volunteers, with the goal of ensuring that everyone has a fun and positive experience.

At night, the children sleep in hotel style cabins with a bathroom.  The volunteers stay in separate but similar cabins.  A child care specialist will be awake and available through the night to attend to any child’s needs.

Meals are prepared in the main kitchen by camp staff with participant’s dietary restrictions in mind.
