Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Changed Retreat?


The Changed Retreat is an opportunity for any woman, no matter what age or stage of life, to get away from the demands of the world and press in closer to Jesus. We hold two retreats per year, once in the spring and once in the fall, that begin on a Thursday evening and end at noon the following Sunday. We use worship music, teaching sessions, and guided periods of reflection to help women understand that their identity is in Christ and not in what the world says they could or should be. Our desire is that every woman leaves retreat knowing she is loved, irreplaceable, and pursued by God.




How old do you have to be to attend retreat?


Women must be 18 years or older to attend the Changed Retreat.

Can I room with my friends?


We will make every effort to place you in the same room as your friends. When you register for retreat, there is a place on the form for you to request your friends as roommates. If you’ve already registered and want to make a change, just email info@changedokc.com.




What should I pack for retreat?


An information email will be sent to retreat registrants at two weeks and one week before retreat. If someone registered on your behalf, the email will go to their email address.




What activities are available?


We offer plenty of activities that will bring out your artistic, competitive, and adventurous sides. During free time, you can enjoy activities like crafting, zip-lining, canoeing, hiking, playing games in the gameroom, watching movies in the Worship Center, and more. The full schedule of free and paid activities will be available at retreat check-in, and registration will be available on-site. Cash, checks, and credit cards will be accepted.




How much does the retreat cost?


Women may choose from two different options for retreat. The standard room is $215 and sleeps up to 16 women in a dorm-style room. The semi-private room is $315, sleeps up to 3 women in a hotel-style room, and includes an ensuite bathroom. Both options include a 3-night stay, 7 meals (plus complimentary snacks), session materials, certain free-time activities, and an abundance of precious quality time with Jesus.




Do you have a discount for women in full time ministry?


We do offer a discount of $100 off a standard room to women who work in ministry full time. Contact info@changedokc.com for information on how to redeem your ministry discount when you register for retreat.




Do you have financial assistance?


Changed Women’s Ministries grants a limited number of partial scholarships to women who have not previously attended a retreat and would not otherwise be able to afford to attend. Our desire is for as many women as possible to hear this message, receive the tools, and be transformed. Because of this passion, to reach more women, only first time attendees who are in serious need of financial assistance are eligible. To request a scholarship application, email info@changedokc.com.




Can you accommodate dietary restrictions?


Camp WOW can accommodate certain medically restricted diets. However, we cannot guarantee there will not be any cross-contamination. If you have a severe allergy, you’re welcome to bring food with you. You will have 24-hour access to a refrigerator and microwave to prepare your food. If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact info@changedokc.com.




How do I let someone know about my special needs?


If you are pregnant or have a medically restricted diet, trouble walking long distances, or another medical condition we need to know about, please notify us through registration. Please note, special needs refers to medically necessary accommodations as we are unable to accommodate special preferences.




Do you coordinate carpooling?


While we recommend carpooling, we do not officially orchestrate a carpool. However, we do have volunteers in the Oklahoma City area who are willing to help connect women and coordinate rides. If you live in the Oklahoma City area and want to volunteer to drive or need to find a ride to retreat, please contact info@changedokc.com for our volunteers’ contact info. Also, if you’re interested in coordinating a carpool from your area, please let us know by emailing info@changedokc.com.




Do you accept credit cards at retreat?


We do accept cash, checks, and credit cards for activities and last-minute registrations. The Camp WOW Snack Shack has a $10 minimum for credit card purchases, so we recommend bringing cash for snack purchases.

Changed Women’s Ministries is a 501(c)3 organization and is not affiliated with any church or denomination.




What is the Prayer Line?


Women can text prayer requests year round to (405) 633-0177. Even though you will not receive a text response, every prayer is prayed over by our Prayer Team and Changed Staff.




How can I volunteer with Changed Women’s Ministries?


For your first Changed Retreat, we want you to rest in Jesus’ presence and focus on growing closer to Him without serving the women around you. Once you’ve attended at least one retreat, you are able to choose from several volunteer teams that work to create an environment where women can encounter God. You can also serve on the team that promotes the Changed Retreat year round. To volunteer with Changed, email volunteer@changedokc.com and someone will help you find the right team for you.
