- About us
The Brentwood Oaks family retreat has been a gathering of our church family at Echo Valley in the H.E.B. Foundation Camps near Leakey, Texas since 1974. In those 30-plus years many fish have been caught (and dutifully returned to the Frio River), many softballs tossed, many wonderful meals have been prepared, eaten, and cleaned-up after. Many friendships have begun and been nurtured, but most of all many, many people have drawn closer to God and to their Christian brothers and sisters during this time we enjoy together in God’s beautiful creation.
It is also a great time to get away from the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives to slow down and listen to the birds, watch children play in the world’s largest sandbox, enjoy a cup of coffee down by the waterside while the early morning fog creeps up the cliffs rising out of the Frio, and when we sing praises to our Lord and Saviour we realize why the place we gather is named Echo Valley.
During these years kids have grown up coming to this retreat and are now returning with their own children. Please join us as we continue this tradition of making wonderful memories in this corner of God’s heaven here on earth.
The 2013 retreat was March 22-24. Brent Isbell from the University Church in Abilene, Texas joined us to lead us in our devotional times.
We have fun at the retreat Talent Show, but former member Jason Middlekauff didn't have much fun coming in late Friday night to the 2003 retreat. The song that resulted is below, which he performed at the Talent Show. Yes, you do drive in the water. Just don't try to turn around at night.
