youth retreat centers NC foothillsChurch youth groups and school groups alike can benefit from the transformative power of a youth retreat. These events are a great way to get your child outside their regular routine, so they can learn more about themselves and how they engage with the world around them. Youth retreats are a great practice for any child and can be an invaluable part of their development for years to come. 

Tekoa Foothills - The Perfect Choice

Finding a great retreat center for your next youth retreat has never been easier in the Foothills of North Carolina, as Tekoa Foothills is conveniently located in Casar, NC. Casar is just over an hour away from the bustling metropolis of Charlotte, yet it is a quiet, small town with only a few hundred residents. This makes it a perfect spot to get away. 

The mission of Tekoa Foothills has been "Touching Hearts, Changing Lives, and Sharing the Light of Christ" since 1962, and thousands of guests from all walks of life have visited. There is no better location to gather as a body of believers to seek the Lord and what he has in store for your group with this mission statement in mind.

In addition to being in a quiet corner of the state, Tekoa Foothills is on 117 acres of land full of hiking trails, multiple bodies of water, and a bamboo forest to explore. In addition to the sheer amount of land, there are plenty of activities, including: 

  • Ax Throwing
