United Methodist Camping

An Adventure of a Lifetime
Camp Wesley Woods.

Grace UMC encourages everyone to experience their faith through the camping experience. There are three UMC camps in Iowa with full camp schedules that will provide a wide variety of camp experiences. Details and a full camping brochure can be found at the Iowa Annual Conference Camping web page.

To encourage children, adults, and families to consider camp, Grace has our own Grants for Campers program. This program promises to pay $200 or half the cost of the camp (whichever is less) for anyone who is associated with Grace. There is no deadline for applying. Please fill out an application and turn it in at the church office.

Rev. Kirby Gull had a life-changing experience at church camp. In memory of his life and ministry, we are pleased to offer camp scholarships through his memorial funds. This fund is designed to help remove financial barriers that may prevent a person from attending camp. Fill out the Kirby Gull Memorial Camp Scholarship application and return it to the church office.
