Father/Teen Ranch Weekend

When was the last time you spent an entire weekend with your teenage son or daughter?  Do you feel like they are growing so fast you can no longer make up for lost time?  It’s never too late to experience Life together with your teen age 14-18 when you attend the Bent Tree Father/Teen Ranch Weekend.  Set in the beautiful new Tuttle Ranch located near Van, Texas, you will experience a weekend of life together complete with numerous outdoor activities including camping, horseback riding, fishing, skeet shooting, hiking and ropes courses, all interlaced with life applications from God’s Word shared by Pete Briscoe, Steve Frissell, and Tammy Gray.  The memories will be lasting and the legacy you pass on to your teen will be enduring.  The Bent Tree Father/Teen Ranch Weekend is April 26-28.  Register here.

Below are two father’s experiences at past Father/Teen Retreats:

“The weekend I spent with my 15 year old was fantastic. With having 3 children it is very difficult to get extended one-on-one time with any of them. This weekend enabled us to connect in a way we had never done before. We were able to do activities we would never do on our own and talk in a way that was much deeper than our normal every day talks. The time spent together in worship was very inspiring and the teaching was both eye opening and challenging. I would highly recommend this weekend to any dad with teenage kids. P.S. The food was also fantastic!!”

“I am so excited about this year’s father/teen retreat. I have been a parent at the last 2 retreats and I highly recommend this to any family. Accommodating requests from many fathers, daughters will now be able to share in this adventure. Time with our teenagers is so important but that time doesn’t always contain deep/meaningful communication. This weekend allows you the opportunity to experience life outside your hectic day-to-day routine. You leave your cell phones off, computers and gaming systems at home and just be alone with your child, God’s beautiful nature and share stories with each other. We were challenged spiritually, mentally and physically. It allowed my sons and I intentional time to open up and be honest with one another. This isn’t something that comes naturally for a lot of us and it’s not always the easiest words to say or hear. At the same time, you are put in a position to meet other families that share your same story and so much more. That’s right, we’re not alone.

This year I will have the honor of getting to serve the other families. I’ve been blessed with 7 children and am so proud that 4 of them will be there helping in different areas of the camp. I look forward to seeing you there so you can experience God’s glorious blessings in your family’s life.”

    Hello Jennalee,

    Thanks for offering to help serve at the ranch this year! Please go to the “here” link in the article you read about the ranch and you can register there to either serve or attend the ranch. If you have not yet attended the ranch with your Dad we would highly recommend that you do that first before coming out to serve. Let me know if you have any questions. thanks, Jon Jobe

    Hello Jennalee,
    Somehow my message got erased when I tried sending it to you but just hit the “here” link in the article you read about the Father/Teen ranch and register as a servant. We would first recommend that you attend the ranch with your Dad if you have not done so already. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks, Jon Jobe
