FINE ARTS CAMPS
There are many new fine arts camps for campers to experience this year! Advance your artistic ability through our Fine Arts camps which include dramatic arts, studio arts, and music. These camps will be open to all skill levels and will provide individual instruction to each camper as they hone in on their God-given talents and abilities.
SPECIAL INTEREST CAMPS
If your interests are a little more specified, try a special interest camp! These camps include events such as Survival Skills, Airsoft, Lego, Astronomy & Computer, and even hybrid camps such as (ISO)Adventure-photography. We’re excited to offer many of these for the first time this year!
EXCEPTIONAL PERSON’S CAMP (SPECIAL GROUP)

ADVENTURE CAMPS
Try something new this year through our revamped adventure camp program! Climb to new heights and explore God’s creation by climbing, hiking, canoeing, kayaking, bouldering, and more! Campers will learn how to step out of their comfort zone and encourage new friends as they do the same.
SPORTS CAMPS
Wesley Woods is beginning a new partnership with Game Changers Ministries. Together, we will provide campers with an enriching program taught by NCAA athletes. This, paired with the applicable Biblical teachings, will help campers learn to understand God’s messages through their favorite sport activities. From Mountain Bike and Cross Country to Swimming and Acro-Tumbling, campers can definitely find an athletic camp to suit their interests!
