While spending time teaching in the public school system, our founder, Matt Moehrig (aka Coach Mo) was confronted with the reality of how hard life can be in middle school. God gave “Coach Mo” a vision to show kids from every background the love of Christ through the avenue of a sports camp. This vision was born along the still waters of the bay near Corpus Christi, Texas. The idea that the Lord leads us beside still waters (Psalm 23:3) to a place of peace and away from the chaos of everyday life is the desire for the camp experience….and so the name Still Water Camps was born.
In October of 2001, Still Water was formed as a 501(C)(3) nonprofit and in July of 2002 we had our first camp, a boys football camp in Medina, Texas!
Because of the desire to offer the camp experience to every student, we scholarship approximately 50% of our campers (30% internally, 20% externally) so that finances are not a hindrance to any student attending camp. A unique aspect of Still Water is bringing together kids from every type of background in a setting where they can all have first time experiences together both in adventure and the love of Christ.
