Camp Cleanup

While we’re disappointed Wesley Woods is not full of summer campers right now, let’s take this opportunity to do some cleanup and maintenance that will make reopening of camp even better. Sign up as an individual or a group by emailing Nicole Holton, site director, at wesleywoodssitedirector@umcamping.org or call 269-721-8291. Let Nicole know which opportunities are a good fit for you and if you can bring any of the requested tools/materials.

Work groups will use physical distancing and masks wherever possible.

Thank you, everyone, for your generous hearts of service!
