Welcome to Wesley Woods Camp & Retreat Center

Wesley Woods Camp & Retreat Center is a purpose-driven, year-round ministry site. You’ll feel right at home in our 300 acres of beautiful grounds and you’ll be cared for by our staff who live out our mission of Growing in Faith and Serving in Strength. It has been a place of significant spiritual impact for children, youth and families where they have made lifelong commitments to God. Guests have enjoyed spiritual renewal and family time here for over 65 years.

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 exploring our diverse ecosystems of woods, water and prairie.

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 to our kayaks, canoes and paddle boards, water-lovers have a grand time! Fire bowl, chapel and scenic views help every day become more sacred and each guest grow closer to God through Jesus Christ.

Last weekend was our Fall Scrapbooking Spiritual Retreat. They scrapped from morning to late night. Had morning devotions and delicious food. They also formed new friendships and embraced last year’s relationships! These ladies were so fun, encouraging and creative. They also had a chance to make a corn husk wreath. We look forward to next years retreat! ... See MoreSee Less
