Laguna Beach Christian Retreat is located in Panama City Beach, Florida, serving Christian groups and families from all over the United States. Our campus is on the sugar white sands of the Gulf of Mexico on the west end of the beach. It’s a quiet, uncrowded area of which helps to provide a conducive spiritual atmosphere for ministry.
The heart of Laguna Beach Christian Retreat is to serve the needs of churches, families, and individuals so they may experience the love of the Father through His beautiful creation at the beach. While at camp, we pray that young and old will encounter Jesus Christ as their Savior, and grow in relationship with Him and other believers.
Good News Baptist Chapel has just celebrated our 30th consecutive year of “Beach Retreat” at Laguna Beach Christian Retreats. From the initial booking each fall, through the unending questions we have, along with filling every need that arises, Laguna’s staff has always exceeded our expectations. The numerous pools, volleyball, basketball, and the beach offer plenty to do during free time and no matter how our numbers have changed, there are meeting spaces to accommodate. Our biggest blessing by far is seeing over 750 young people commit their lives to the Lord there over these years. Many of those are now in ministry and bringing their own groups back to this special place. Laguna Beach Christian Retreats is the only place we want to take our group to each summer! Thanks for helping us reach the next generation with the gospel of Jesus Christ!
Pastor Wesley Jeffcoat - Dozier, AL
I am so grateful for the ministry of the Laguna Beach Christian Retreat. For the last 20 years, with three different churches, I have been blessed to bring teenagers for Summer Camp at the beach. The servant minded attitude of the Haas family and all those who work at camp stands out the most to me. They always go the extra mile for their guests no matter what the situation is. My students love the ease of getting around camp, beach access right across the street, the housing and especially the home style meals. It's well worth our travel from Texas for a Gulf Coast experience you can't get anywhere else.
Pastor Eric Adcock - Weatherford, Texas
I thank the Lord for a facility and faculty like Laguna Beach Christian Retreat. The summer wouldn’t be the same for the youth of First Baptist Sevierville without this great Retreat Center. For over 20 years we have annually had teenagers lives rocked for the cause of Christ. The best part of Panama City is located on the west side called Laguna Beach Christian Retreat!
