Is Tekoa Foothills the Right Place for My Group?

As we mentioned, Tekoa Foothills has facilities and activities for various groups. Here are some examples of how Tekoa Foothills can provide an ideal location for your next retreat.

  • For those looking to completely unplug, our campus contains multiple campsites for tent camping. Some campsites are located in open fields, perfect for stargazing, while others are in wooded areas and along the creek. 
    • Campsites can be reserved for just ten dollars per tent, so families, boy scout/girl scout troops, and others can affordably enjoy our campus in this way.

    • If you would like to camp but you don’t have the necessary equipment, we can even supply you with tents and outdoor cooking equipment for an affordable rate. 
    • In addition to free parking, there is also a bathroom in the pool house, which is available to those who are utilizing one of our campsites.
  • There are three lodges available to rent, which can accommodate between twenty-five and sixty guests. Each of the lodges boasts large living rooms/gathering spaces, porches with seating, indoor fireplaces/outdoor fire pits, fully stocked kitchens, and indoor bathrooms.
    • For corporate teams, the gathering spaces provide the perfect location for meetings or brainstorming sessions. When it’s time for a break, teams can step outside and easily access one of the on-site hiking trails, which will surely get the creative juices flowing.
    • Youth groups will enjoy coming back to the lodge after a full day of team-building on our challenge course, boating on the lake, and practicing archery at our shooting range. They can play group games in the gathering space or quiet down with a time of worship. 
  • If you are looking for a spot to host an event, such as your child’s birthday party or a family reunion, Tekoa Foothills can also be rented for day use. The picnic shelter is a great spot to share a meal with family and friends, and day rentals can access other property amenities, such as hiking trails, the lake, the basketball court, the gaga ball pit, and adventure activities.
