Welcome to Wesley Woods Camp & Retreat Center

Wesley Woods Camp & Retreat Center is a purpose-driven, year-round ministry site. You’ll feel right home in our 300 acres of beautiful grounds and cared for by our staff who live out our mission of “Growing in Faith, and Serving in Strength.”

Summer Camp: We welcome you to experience God’s love through summer camp for children, teens, families and grandparents. You’ll be pumped up through high-energy worship, creative and unique programs, and our beautiful outdoor setting.

Year-Round Retreat Options: Your group, family or team-building event will love our versatile meeting spaces, delicious food service and accommodating overnight lodging.

Outdoor Fun and Adventure: From our swimming pool with slide to our kayaks, canoes and paddle boards, water-lovers have a grand time! Our go-karts, paint ball and mountain boarding give the high-adventure types lots to do! Fire bowl, chapel and scenic views help every day become more sacred and each guest grow closer to God through Jesus Christ.

  • My two grandsons went, one for high school and the other for middle school canoeing. They both absolutely loved it.


  • "I loved firebowl because it gave me a moment to have a conversation with God and notice how much he loves us."


  • "I learned that serving others is the best fuel for your relationship with God."


  • "Grand Camp was totally awesome! The schedule kept us busy, but not too busy. We were greatly surprised and so pleased to have our own cabin for quiet times. That was super! Food was incredible! And this was camp...wow!! The programming gave us opportunity to discuss our faith and our backgrounds. What a wonderful experience!"
