Iowa United Methodist Camps
The mission of the Board of Camp, Conference and Retreat Ministries is to provide sacred space where Jesus Christ transforms lives, persons grow in Christian discipleship and leaders are developed to empower their local churches in the world; and to facilitate this mission through Christian love.

Wesley Woods offers young people an opportunity to escape the expectations others have placed on them. We acknowledge God created each camper special and unique. We want to give young people encouragement to strengthen who they are or to rewrite the direction they are heading. Through exploring the outdoors, being mentored by our staff, cooking over fires, attending worship, having tons of fun and developing new skills each camper has an opportunity to learn a little more about who they are.
