Parent and Child Retreat

Looking for the perfect getaway for you and your young one?

If you want adventure, like shelter building, fire building, and more, we’ve got it! If you want time to craft, like leather working and ranch cooking, we’ve got it! You can choose to participate in both adventure and crafts, or just one, and experience bonding while trying new things together. Everyone will join together for ranch activities, tasty meals, faith formation opportunities, and lots of fun!

Adults and children of the same gender will stay in the respective side of the Bunkhouse. If you are not the same gender as the child you bring, your will be housed in Lela Haus and a Cross Trails staff member will provide overnight supervision for your child in the Bunkhouse. All adults staying in the Bunkhouse will be required to obtain a Protect My Ministry certificate.

If a custodial parent/guardian is not available for this retreat and another adult wants to bring the child, please contact our office at 830-257-6340.
