a Christ-centered sanctuary and retreat center located in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana. Our desire is to foster an environment that allows for deeper connections without the distractions of everyday life.
Holy Spirit driven. We believe that all lasting change comes from the inner workings of the Holy Spirit. Without Him, our work and striving are fruitless. We desire to create an environment that allows the Holy Spirit to move freely.
a resource for all seasons of life. We seek to not only provide a safe haven, but also equip individuals with the tools to reconcile, strengthen, and establish relationships.
Rustic outdoors meets airy romance in this weekend retreat focused on building closer relationships between husbands and wives. It’s glamping at its finest with gourmet meals, bonfires, and times of intimate conversation without the distractions of everyday responsibilities. Topics include communication, the art of grace, and couple’s teambuilding. To get the most out of this weekend, phones and other electronic devices should be left behind or turned off. Space is limited, so sign up today!
The parent/teen relationship is something that takes intentionality, time, and energy to really develop into something lasting. Join us for a weekend packed with team-building, worship, conversation starters, and teaching sessions to help grow your connection with your teen. You can expect all the charm of camping (bonfires, canoes), but not as rustic in regard to your comfort. Camp Refuge offers an elevated camping experience in our glamping tents and in our country, homestyle cooking.
Just a sample of what we do.
Set apart from the cares of everyday life, our 42 acres in Breaux Bridge, LA are secluded and beautiful. It’ easy to rest here. Our prayer is that this sacred space facilitates your finding God,and gives you a place to focus on your most important relationships.
Consider hosting your event at Camp Refuge, surrounded by natural beauty. No matter what your occasion - from celebrations (reunions, holiday gatherings, parties, showers, and intimate weddings) to teambuilders (corporate, church leadership, sports teams) to retreats (pastors, church staff, faculty, men’s, women’s college, marriage groups and more) - Camp Refuge can offer a respite from the cares of everyday life to encounter the peace and presence of God and build relationships with one another.
The vision of Camp Refuge far surpasses the ability of just a humble few. We need YOU! Do you know a special tradeskill like carpentry? Are you a fundraising guru? Or maybe you aren’t afraid to get your hands dirty clearing trees and underbrush? Do you like to do house keeping? The possibilities and giftings are endless. We need YOU! At each stage of the project we will contact those who fit the current need.
Camp Refuge is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We need people who believe in our mission to sow financial seeds. That being said, we believe that your tithe belongs to the local church you attend. We request that any financial donation come from a desire to give beyond the tithe. Thank you for you donation! May the Lord bless you abundantly as you give from the overflow of your heart.
That’s the question that I (Nicole) asked Kevin in 2013. Without blinking he said, “I’d start a youth camp.” It was in this moment that the dream of Camp Refuge was planted in our hearts, but we wondered if these were the visions of lofty dreamers. We had the heart. We had the passion. But were we called?
3 years later the call was received loud and clear when a man prophetically spoke over Kevin, “The Lord has given you a vision. Go for it. Because the vision is big. It is beyond you. The Lord says, ‘I’m with you on it! Go for it! Don’t waver in that vision and you will see the fruit and results of it.’”
It was in this moment that we began to run towards the vision. Each step in this journey has felt like we were cliff-jumping, but the Lord has caught us each and every time. We are in awe of His faithfulness and miraculous provision. The Lord has left us no room to doubt that He is indeed “with us on it."
Camp Refuge has become more than the simple youth camp we had originally envisioned, but the mission remains true . . . we believe in “radical transformation of relationships.” Let’s go deep together. Join us as we climb this mountain in pursuit of the Lord’s presence!
Each year we are in awe of all the Lord has done!

Only God could write a story this amazing. We'd dreamed of property to call our own, and through events only He could orchestrate, 42 acres became Camp Refuge's to steward. Thank you, Jesus!
