Family Mission Trip to Wesley Woods Retreat Center

Help Prepare Wesley Woods Retreat Center for Camp Season 2023
Saturday, May 27 to Monday, May 29

This Family Mission Trip, where people of all ages (12 and above) can work, laugh, and live life for a time together while helping others will help prepare Wesley Woods Retreat Center for the camp season.

The Wesley Woods Retreat Center on the shores of beautiful Geneva Lake in Wisconsin, needs some care before the 2023 camp season begins! We need help from individuals and families on Memorial Day weekend from Saturday, May 27 to Monday, May 29 to give the camp buildings and grounds a much-needed sprucing up before the summer camp season moves into full swing.

There are projects for a variety of skill levels! There are buildings and cabins that need to be swept and cleaned; items that need painting; some carpentry projects; trails and paths to be cleared; decks and stairs to be pressure washed and painted or stained, lights that need replacing, and more!

Come for a day, a few hours, or the weekend. There are jobs for everyone, regardless of skill level or expertise. This is a wonderful opportunity to put your faith into action by enjoying nature while helping make a beautiful camp even nicer.

How will this work?
All tools and supplies will be provided, although depending on your skill level and area of specialty, you may want to bring specific items of your own.

Accommodations will be bunk beds. You will need to bring your own towel, linens, and pillow.

Most buildings have full kitchens if you want to bring and fix your own or there are a number of nearby restaurants. No meals will be provided. 

Join us!
There is no cost. If you are interested in participating or have any questions, contact Don or Devra Dunham at 630.362.3164 or by email here.
