Gift of Spring
Thank you for Spring and the hope of warmer, longer, brighter days. Thank you for the coming of growth and life.
Thank you for our busy calendars, as they bring us closer to spending time with your children at camp.
Lord when we struggle, help us to remember that your word says that we will have provision, and hope, and joy, and health and loving relationships here and now in this life.
We hope in you and in your promises.
We hope in your gift of Spring.

SUMMIT is our weekend-long retreats for 16-18 year olds. The curriculum focuses on skills that will help them function better as adults.

RISE is a weekend-long retreat offered in April for teen boys and November for teen girls, ages 12-18. OFC will continue to use a 2:1 teen to counselor ratio at RISE, and the curriculum and activities are designed to help teens build self-esteem and navigate gender-specific issues.
Our Father's Children exists to provide HOPE to children of abuse and neglect in Texas, ages 6-18, in camp settings, weekend retreats, and in mentoring clubs. We recruit volunteers from a variety of cities, churches and organizations who have a heart for offering these kids hope in Jesus Christ. Whether as a volunteer or donor (or both), we would love to have you join us in providing hope to these kids!
