Every year parents, grandparents, pastors and friends ask me why kids should come to camp.
My simple answer is, at Wesley Woods I have witnessed campers being shaped through meaningful worship, fun and fellowship. Many have become faithful leaders for today and tomorrow. Each summer we have an opportunity to host over 1,700 campers.
As a certified camp and retreat ministry person with over 12 years in professional ministry I know we have one of the finest programs in the Midwest. The families of our campers have been coming for generations and can share stories of common experiences and spiritual growth. We above all seek to create a SAFE environment where the physical and emotional well being of the campers are a top priority.
Wesley Woods offers young people an opportunity to escape the expectations others have place on them. We acknowledge God created each camper special and unique. We want to give young people encouragement to strengthen who they are or to rewrite the direction they are heading. Through exploring the outdoors, being mentored by our staff, cooking over fires, attending worship, having tons of fun and developing new skills each camper has an opportunity to learn a little more about who they are.
