Each summer Camp Wesley Woods serves and ministers to around 1,000 children and youth. Outside summer, we serve another 5,000 children and youth.
We invite you to pray about becoming ministry partners in this valuable and loved camping ministry that grow disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. Your gift will make an eternal difference!
Together for Tomorrow Campaign
Each summer at Camp Wesley Woods, young people make decisions to follow Christ, dedicate their lives to service, and develop an appreciation for the importance of creation and its stewardship. They experience the fullness of God's love through the fun and fellowship of outdoor recreation and emerge from a week of camp stronger and more resilient.
This year, because of COVID-19 concerns about the safety of our children, staff, and their families, kids across our conference did not experience camp. Our campers have missed out on the opportunity to experience the love of Christ at Camp Wesley Woods.
Camp Wesley Woods has a strong fee-for-service sustainability model. In a typical year, most of the revenue that camp requires is generated through the dollars of retreat groups, school bookings, and summer camp registrations. This year, because of coronavirus, this is not the case.
Camp Wesley Woods is asking you to prayerfully consider making a donation to help Camp Wesley Woods reopen in 2021 and continue our mission and ministry. If you have any questions or would like to discuss, you can call Camp Wesley Woods at (865) 448-2246. To donate online to this campaign, click here then select "Camp Wesley Woods Fund".
Providing a loving community and quality camping ministry requires substantial resources. The Annual Campaign is an opportunity for you to partner with us to provide these resources to continue the positive and eternal impacts of our ministries on over 6,000 children, youth and adults each year.
Annual Giving also supports the Campership (Scholarship) Program. The cost of camp can more than some families can afford. We believe every child should have the opportunity to experience summer camp. It is our desire that no child will miss out on the camp experience for a lack of funds.
Your gift to the Annual Campaign also provides financial assistance which allows campers who are unable to pay the full fee for summer camp to attend camp.
In 2018 more than 170 campers gratefully received $44,000 in financial assistance so that they could attend Camp Wesley Woods and experience Jesus and Christ's community.
