Camping

Each summer the church provides access and support for elementary and youth members to attend events planned at any of the three United Methodist Camps: Allegheny, Jumonville and Wesley Woods as well as specialized trip camps. The Church pays a portion of the fees.  For more information on our conference camps, click on the links below.

 

 

Wesley Woods Mission Statement is: "to meet the spiritual needs of children, youth, and adults in a Christian camp or retreat setting."

 

Great and wonderful things happen at camp and you'll want to join in on the fun to see what God has in store for you!!

 

For more information or if you need help with financing (don't let the cost keep you from going to camp), please contact Heidi Ketzko through the church office at 723-4930.

SPONSORS

Can you sponsor a child from this congregation to go to camp this summer at Wesley Woods? Wouldn't it be wonderful to see more of our children and youth find a closer relationship with Jesus through a camp experience?! Stop by the church office or see Heidi or John Lewis to see how you can make a difference in some child's life this summer. Any amount helps, just mark your contribution Wesley Woods Camp Scholarship.
