What to Expect

You can expect lots of time to enjoy activities as a family, teaching and worship times as a large group, free time to spend while your children are well cared for, refreshing and encouraging time with other men and women who have walked a road similar to yours, fun, safe and age appropriate programs for each camper attending, and so much more!

There will be a buddy assigned to your family member who has a disability. They will be there to help you, get to know you all and give your camper the best Family Retreat possible! (They cannot help with personal needs, so you’ll set meeting times and places to take care of those needs.)

Carson Springs Baptist Conference Center has beautiful hotel-style accommodations, and the dining hall is in the same building for quick and easy access.
