TFFA is excited to once again be partnering with Lutherhill Ministries and Project Liftoff

It’s time to relax and connect with your family at a free retreat. 

Life is better with s’mores. And sunny days and starry skies, and off-key camp songs, lively games and craft projects made of popsicle sticks. Families grow stronger with spiritual quiet time, bonds are strengthened and new friends are made in a camp setting designed for families, youth and young children of all ages and faiths.

Project Liftoff is a non-profit initiative aimed at providing Lutherhill camp scholarships to deserving children and their families. Scholarships provided will enable families to attend camping retreats at Lutherhill Ministries in La Grange, Texas. Here, families can relax and renew in a safe environment. Project Liftoff will secure donations, identify deserving families and coordinate retreats with Lutherhill Ministries.

Families who are paying members to TFFA are registered on a first-come, first-served basis. There are 60 slots available for members who pay dues to the Texas Foster Family Association. If a family participated in a previous retreat, we ask that you allow other families to participate this time. Families that express interest need to be able to commit to participating for the full weekend.

The purpose of the weekend is for foster and adopt children and parents to enjoy a family retreat together as a family with other similar families. There will be a loose agenda with a variety of activities but also lots of flexibility. The weekend will start on Friday evening with a bonfire and smores and end after breakfast and an optional worship service on Sunday morning. On Saturday, there will be arts and crafts options, family scavenger hunt, ropes course, amongst other things. Families stay in cabins with their family unit.
