The Oaks

Winter Camps

Winter camps are a fully programmed, three-day camp available to urban ministries serving Seventh through Twelfth Grade teens! We offer a variety of exciting activities and four engaging sessions, centered on Christ, designed to share the gospel with those who are not yet believers, and challenge teens who have already put their faith in God!

We want to support your ministry this year! Come kick start the new year with a dynamic, experiential, Christ-centered winter weekend retreat for your teens.

2017 Winter Teen Retreat

Have you ever felt lost? Hopeless? Sad? Unloved? Ashamed of who you are? The list could go on and on. The world can be a dark place. Sometimes in our brokenness and pain we see things that look lit; like we just need to chase after them to find our way. However, Jesus is the only true light which leads us to true healing, forgiveness, and abundant life. That is why we say Jesus is the light of life. With Him we have a hope for now and for the future. We have His light within us that we must share to others who are in darkness.

Jesus said "Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness
but will have the LIGHT of LIFE."
