Welcome to Emmanuel Camp

We are a Youth Camp located at Alto Frio Baptist Camp & Conference Center which is just a couple hours outside of San Antonio in the beautiful Texas Hill Country.  We know it can be little intimidating trying out a new camp, but we want everyone to feel like family. We’re here to answer any questions you may have about Emmanuel Camp or about Alto Frio.

About Us

"If God is worth anything to you, He must be EVERYTHING to you."

Matt Blackwell, Camp Pastor 2015




Recording Artist

Sitting at the keys in a theater in downtown Miami, GAWVI, the producer, DJ, and Dove Award winning songwriter crystallizes his reasons for doing creative work to just a few words: “My passion is to motivate and inspire, to urge people to tap into the potential inside them.” He’s playing a few notes, enjoying the lull of a quiet venue before it fills with thousands of screaming fans and supporters. Truth is, it wasn’t always like this. He wasn’t always rocking packed out shows, but he did know it would someday be his reality. Some might call it confidence in one’s ability, but GAWVI understands it as having a firm grasp on the greater purpose for which he was created.

“We started out as producers, so we try to understand diversity in songwriting,” says Capital Kings. “We've worked hard on this album trying to create a body of work where each song feels different but collectively feels like it all belongs together. We've been working on this album the past two years day in and day out. The fun thing about the music we do is you can be inspired by different cities and places you’re in and work on tracks and ideas on our computer. We don't need a big studio to make our music, that is the fun part.” “We're going to celebrate life to the fullest cause we've been blessed to be put on this earth. We just want people to connect with the music and be taken on a journey. We want people to share it with their friends. We think if you were to come out to a show it might not be what you are used to…but you can walk away with some something fresh, along with something that has substance to it.”



Recording Artist

At just 16-years-old, she signed a deal with multi-GRAMMY® award winning artist TobyMac and his label Gotee Records. For the past two years, Hollyn has been developed by the label and worked closely with Toby. Fans got an initial taste of her radiant voice on “Backseat Driver” and “Lights Shine Bright”—two tracks from Toby’s critically-acclaimed release, **This Is Not A Test** (ForeFront). The lead single “Alone,” which features Toby’s son Truett, reflects the vibrancy of her voice and the growth of her spiritual journey. This debut song shot up to the top of the Hot AC/CHR chart in just six weeks, making it one of the quickest singles to reach No. 1 in 2015 as well as made Christian radio chart history with 95 percent of the Hot AC/CHR panel adding the single out of the box.

Social Club Misfits

Social Club Misfits

People often talk about the future of hip-hop music like it isn't right now. As if the future were some far off paint splotch occupying our collective imagination. On the contrary, the future is now, and some aren't afraid to take it where it's going. Enter Social Club Misfits, the Miami duo whose built a cult following on the strength of their provocative oeuvre and singular, quick-witted approach. Comprised of Marty and Fern, Social Club is the after-effect of two distinctive personalities meshing to create an invigorating sound. The self-monikered "Misfits" are disruptors in every sense, challenging norms and bringing other misfits along for the ride. With a host of projects and EPs under their proverbial belt, including the Billboard-charting full lengths Misfits 2 and US, Social Club Misfits has made a sport of pushing boundaries and redefining the possibilities of what faith-based music can accomplish. From headlining sold out tours across the country to spawning imitators the world over, it's clear the duo has struck a chord with listeners from all walks of life. They have bypassed perceived gatekeepers in favor of carving their own lane and fueling their purpose. While some are content with moving wherever the current leads, Social Club Misfits has embraced their calling as leaders of a more intentional school of thought. The misfits are now. Their latest project, The Misfit Generation EP is available now!
