Map to Egan
Egan has been blessed since its beginning with great leadership and vision for developing a wonderful
place for all to come and experience God in His creation.

Since 1945, Egan Camp & Retreat Center has been the location for many life changing experiences.
God is able to reach people on a deeper level when they leave the world behind and immerse
themselves in the beauty of His creation at Egan. Serving over 5,000 campers and guests annually,
Egan provides space for worship, meditation, fellowship, nourishment and recreation.
Egan's staff and Site Development Committee have worked extremely hard to maintain and improve
our facilities with the intention of making each person's stay as positive as possible.
To do this, we have made many renovations and additions to our site over the years.
The new facilities are a blessing and enable us to host a variety of guests.
The addition of our lodge in 2009 came with a debt of $600,000.
At the time, the plan was to pay back the loan over time with revenue from the lodge and
funds from the Egan trusts. Because of the impact on our annual budget, we have adjusted
that plan and are currently paying around $40,000 each year back to the Oklahoma United Methodist Camps.
Our goal is to change more lives, providing a place where their relationship with Christ can grow.
To do this, we need to continue maintaining and updating our current facilities as well as adding new
programming opportunities for our guests. With this debt, budgeting for equipment, tools, and materials
needed for maintenance is very difficult. Our donors have been very faithful to assist with maintenance and upgrades.
In 2020, we will celebrate Egan's 75th Anniversary. Our goal is to also celebrate being debt free.
Change is on the Horizon and we truly feel that God has done, is doing, and is planning some amazing
experiences for our children, youth, and adults that visit Egan each year. Endless prayer and brainstorming
has led us to this point and we are asking for your help to take Egan beyond the Horizon.
In 2011, we established a policy, at Egan, to raise $100,000 more than the estimated cost of the project.
This allows us to place the additional funds in a maintenance endowment, ensuring that we will not
face this situation in the future. We accomplished that with our last campaign,
building a multi-purpose medical station, and will have over $100,000 in the endowment.
We ask that you prayerfully consider giving $75 per month for three years to help
with our debt retirement. Your pledge of $2,700 will be instrumental in reaching our goal of $540,000,
which will give us the $100,000 for a maintenance endowment.
Any amount is greatly appreciated. Whether it is more or less, everything will help in our
mission to become debt free and to change more lives for Christ.
Please prayerfully consider a monthly gift to help Egan "Prepare for the Future" as the need for Christian Camping in our society continues to grow.
Egan Camp and Retreat Center is surrounded by the Ozark mountains; it is easy to feel God's presence and enjoy the beauty of God's creation.
Long before it was a retreat center, people camped here because of the richness of this area. Numerous fruit trees, nut trees, wild strawberries, and wild onions are common place. In the early 1900's it was a fishing camp. People would ride the train from Muskogee and get off when the train would stop to fill with water. They were free to fish all day until the train returned.
Today, Egan Camp is a modern retreat center.
