ABOUT US

Lakeview Camp and Retreat Center was the longtime vision of Derwood DuBose, who served as Superintendent of the North Texas District of the Assemblies of God. Through prayer, obedience to the vision God had given, and the support of countless believers longing for God to use them to reach the world for Christ, the gates opened in 1997.   

Since then, Lakeview has continued to make improvements and additions to become a premier camp, retreat, and conference facility. The result is that Lakeview has grown to become a vital ministry to churches of many different denominations, schools, businesses, athletic teams, civic groups, and the local community.

Lakeview Camp and Retreat Center offers several different options for groups:

SITE RENTAL

Participants stay at Lakeview in cabins or lodges, enjoy meals in our dining room,
and have access to the activities we provide.

PROGRAMMING

Delivered by our qualified and friendly staff – participants stay and dine on-site, and activities are facilitated and supervised. This includes our outdoor education programming and all Lakeview Adventures.

A COMBINATION OF BOTH

This option includes your own programming with activities planned, led, and facilitated by Lakeview staff. This includes activities like crate stacking and the challenge course, that involve facilitators for instruction and safety. It also includes large group games or even helps in planning your event. We love for groups to use our facilities, but our greater aim is to see them achieve their goals. To that end, our experienced staff can partner with you, offering direction in the areas of scheduling, logistics, promoting, and hosting your event.

We accommodate our guests! Tailored programs, group-specific menus, and special requests can be met.
