SUMMER CAMP

 
Wesley Woods Summer programs are centered around the ministry of Jesus Christ, and the ministry of Christianity. It is our goal to create a welcoming environment that is an echo of the embrace that we receive from Jesus.
 
Summer Camp is a place for kids to find themselves, meet new friends, and above all connect with God. With programs like adventure, sports, fine arts, special interest camps, little camps for our junior campers, and exceptional persons camp, Wesley Woods has something to offer everyone.

If your camper has any medical needs or issues and you aren’t sure if a particular camp is right for him or her, please contact our health center staff before you register. We want to make sure that all campers find the right fit and that we are prepared to keep them safe and healthy all week. We love to talk to campers and parents and want to have the right staff in place who are ready to help everyone have a great week at camp.

 
Wesley Woods COVID-19 Registration Process
 
Please plan to arrive at Wesley Woods at least 15 minutes prior to your scheduled time so that you are able to make it to registration during your window. We ask that you wait in your vehicle until your scheduled time. These registration windows are very brief, but we are hoping for a smooth registration process as long as everyone shows up during their scheduled window. We request that you wear a mask from the parking lot and through the entire registration process until you are back to your vehicle. Our staff will be masked to protect you and we politely ask that you do the same for us. Please remember that only ONE adult per camper may go through the registration process and we ask that you limit your time in the cabin as much as possible.

In addition to our regularly scheduled 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. 

ADVENTURE CAMPS

FUN FOR ALL

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.

SPECIAL INTEREST CAMPS

A CAMP FOR EVERY INTEREST

If your interests are a little more specified, try a special interest camp! These camps include interest such as survival skills, airsoft, Lego, astronomy & computer, and even hybrid camps such as adventure-photography. We’re excited to offer many of these for the first time this year!

EXCEPTIONAL PERSON’S (EP) CAMP

This camp allows adults with intellectual and physical disabilities to enjoy God’s creation alongside peers through a camp designed with them in mind. Our goal is to help them learn their unique abilities through scriptural lessons and activities catered to their unique interests.

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.
