Faith & Friends

We begin our days with engaging devotions and end our days with outdoor chapel.

This is an opportunity for our youth to begin or deepen friendships with persons in our church family and to meet people of faith from all over our region.


Camp begins by gathering on campfire hill for fun and s’mores and ends with a spirit filled fireside worship service.


Pastor Jenny is excited to be returning for her 16th year of camp. She will serve as a camp pastor and looks forward to getting to know our young people better. Taylor Boone will share camp with our youth and Sherry Perrine will share camp with children


We are eager to identify adults who are willing to serve as a counselor for the week. Counselors support a small group of campers as they engage in camp activities. Counselors have separate rooms in the lodging areas and provide support and supervision in the evening and night. If you are interested in being a counselor contact Pastor Jenny ( jsmith@wesleyfreedom.org), Taylor ( tboone@wesleyfreedom.org) or Sherry ( sperrine@wesleyfreedom.org).

Children of counselors receive a 25% discount.
