In 2020, Brush Creek opened Kelly’s Lodge, a 12,000 square foot facility with many new attributes and activity rooms. In the new facility, we have a game room which includes various activities such as ping pong, foosball table, and other games. Here the students can have some fun and get to know the other boys who have gained appropriate privilege. We use certain activities and rooms as incentives for students to participate and grow within the program. While we know the boys are growing through some difficult situations, we want them to enjoy their time and celebrate their victories!
Another place for student’s free time activity at Kelly’s Lodge is the lounge room. Here they are able to play board games, read books, write letters, work on homework, and watch approved movies at approved times. We believe that after much hard schoolwork and studying, a time of rest and relaxation can help recharge your mind and better prepare you for the next day or week.
At Brush Creek, health and fitness is an important aspect of growth. We want you to grow spiritually and mentally! We have recently opened a 250 square feet weight room with new equipment. The gym includes several squat racks, bench press machines, many freeways, dip machines, HIIT equipment, and more. The boys can lift weights during free time and get prepared to excel on the football field, the basketball court, and at life! Athletics and competition help build comradery and sportsmanship.
During the boy’s free time, we allow them to have some fun by competing in different athletics. A game of pick-up basketball with staff can bring a lot of enjoyment to the day. Here at Brush Creek, we love the great outdoors, and with 900 acres of rolling foothills, we have plenty of space to enjoy. The boys can participate in staff-led hikes where we explore nature and get exercise. Our Outdoor Coordinator will also take them to our on-site campgrounds near spring-fed Brush Creek to enjoy an overnight of camping and bonfires! The creek makes for an excellent swimming hole on hot summer days.
Brush Creek Academy is located on a 915-acre ranch setting in northeastern Oklahoma. Our campus sits at the foothills of the Ozark mountains with Brush Creek a beautiful clear flowing stream running through our grounds. On our property, we have opportunities to hike, fish, camp, hunt, swim and learn archery. Cattle graze through the valleys and the hills and the boys can learn how care for them and the other animals at Oasis Animal Adventures. Please contact our admissions department to find out more.
