The North Texas Easter Retreat exists to bring teens closer to Jesus Christ. It's a great way for your teens to hear the Gospel, grow closer to Jesus, and to be invested in! The retreat is held each year at the Falls Creek Conference Center in Davis, OK on Easter weekend. We begin on Thursday night and continue through lunch-time on Saturday to give you time to return home to celebrate Resurrection Sunday with your church family.
Throughout the retreat, your teens will worship with an additional 1,000+ teenagers from churches all over North Texas. They will hear sermons from the Bible that challenge and encourage them in their everyday walk. On Friday afternoon, they can participate in our recreation activities which include a zip line, ropes course, and individual and team sports (flag football, volleyball, 1-mile fun run, softball, basketball shoot-out to name a few). They can also swim in a natural spring pool and check out the famous Falls Creek Gum Tree. We can assure you there is plenty for your group to participate in.
If your group decides to participate in the individual and team sports, they are eligible to win the coveted Sportsmanship Trophy. This trophy is awarded to the group that exhibits the best attitude and sportsmanship on Friday afternoon. The leader of the winning group will also receive a Kindle Fire tablet.
The registration fee per participant (teen or adult) is $33. If you bring children (12 years old and younger) with you, the cost is $10. You will register upon your arrival at the retreat. All of the above activities are included in the registration fee.
Lodging is in one of the many cabins available for rent at Falls Creek. Please visit their website to search and book a cabin for this weekend. Depending on the size of cabin you need, costs for renting will vary. As the cabins are individually owned by churches, you will need to contact and pay them directly to book the cabin. Contact information is located under cabin information on the Falls Creek website.
You are responsible for providing food for your participants throughout the entire retreat. Each cabin comes with a kitchen space and many provide a cooks quarters.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact us and we'll be glad to answer any questions and to offer recommendations.
We look forward to seeing your teens and entire group at the North Texas Easter Retreat!
