Camping Forms and Information
Camping Philosophy: Church camping is a viable and effective means for furthering the ministry of the church. Provided with a living experience in a "place apart" over an extended time, persons are able to explore God's story, to experience the vitality of a Christian community, and to grow in relationships. Our work is guided by the Seven Foundations of United Methodist Camps and Retreat Centers. Click here for more information.
