Camps & Meetings

Cross Oak Camp and Retreat Center offers sleeping accommodations, meals and recreational facilities for all ages and group sizes. Sleeping accommodations include inn-style rooms, cabins, dormitory lodging and full RV hook up. Meals range from campstyle dining and banquet styles.

Our recreational facilities include a full sized gymnasium offering basketball or volleyball, outdoor basketball and volleyball courts, a swimming pool, a 9 hole disc golf course and two playground areas.

Children's Camps

Children’s camps are one of the most important summer ministries of a church. Thousands of boys and girls attend camp each year all over the United States, and hundreds come to know Jesus Christ as their personal Savior as a result of their camp experience. We are privileged to be a part of this process!

Youth Camps

Youth camps and recreational retreats are a great way for middle school and high school students to not only bond with each other and their leaders, but to give them a time to reflect on themselves and their relationship with Christ.

Family Camps

Family camps or denominational church camps are great ways to involve the whole family in a time of spiritual renewal and camp fun! Various spaces are conducive to family worship, children’s worship, and teen worship taking place simultaneously. Families may reserve cabins, inn rooms, dormitory rooms, and RV and tent spaces, and enjoy movie nights, bonfires, corn hole, and milkshakes together with other families in their circle.


Cross Oak Camp and Retreat Center is known for great hospitality for a variety of events. Retreats for church staff and board members, pastors and spouses, men and women and other ministry partners are beneficial in so many ways. Our guests enjoy time away from their daily schedules in an exceptional setting in which to accomplish their group’s agenda. Food is served buffet style, with complimentary snacks and drinks in meeting areas to create a hospitable environment for your event!


As you look for the perfect place for your camp or retreat, we invite you to schedule a tour! We’re available most days or weekends, at your convenience.

To reserve a date for your camp or retreat, please contact us. We’ll provide an individualized proposal with prices for lodging and meals that will suit your specific needs and budget, according to your length of stay, number of meals, and number of meeting areas needed.

We’d love to work with you to make your camp or retreat a success. Each event is important to us, and we can’t wait to share our camp home with you.
