Father Son Retreat

May 1-3, 2020 (BONUS DAY April 30th see below)

This is the PERFECT way to connect as a father and son. We take care of the details from start to finish. You can expect solid biblical preaching, powerful worship music, six of the most delicious meals you will ever have at a camp, so many different activities you will not be able to do them all, and of course time to bond as father and son. Need a better feel for what our Father Son Retreat is all about? Just watch the video and we’ll see you soon!

I am spiritually refreshed.


It was fun and I experienced a great time with Dad and got closer.


Just spending quality time with my son whether it was paintball or worship service or just laughing or spending time growing in God’s Word is awesome.


Check out this video of last year's Father Son Retreat to get a better look at the amazing experience fathers and sons can have together!

Speaker - Todd Hitchcock

Todd Hitchcock is a 30 year ministry veteran as a youth pastor and lead pastor. He is currently the Lead Pastor at Bethel Church in Escondido where he has served for 11 years. Todd's passion is to follow Jesus' command to teach people to obey all that Jesus commanded. In doing this, Todd brings theology, the what of the Bible, application, the how of the Bible and apologetics, the why of the Bible into each teaching setting. A Biola and Southwestern grad, he is currently pursuing his doctorate in apologetics at Gateway Seminary. He is the husband of Dina, to whom he's been married for 17 years. He has four kids, three girls and one boy. His family is his most important pursuit in his life!

Worship Leader - Nathan Gardner

Nathan has been the chief musician at Patterson First Baptist church for more than 10 years. Nathan loves helping others understand the truths of Scripture through song. Seeing people grow deeper in their love and knowledge of Christ brings him true joy. Him and his wife Janine of 12 years have three children, James 9, Dorothy 7, and Silas 3.
