Help Prepare Wesley Woods Retreat Center for Camp Season 2022
Friday, May 27 to Monday, May 30

The Mission, Justice and Community Work Area is dedicated to reaching out to serve others and getting as many people as possible to become involved in connecting our members to each other and those in need. This inspired the idea of an Family Mission Trip, where people of all ages (12 and above) can work, laugh, and live life for a time together while helping others.

The Wesley Woods Retreat Center on the shores of beautiful Lake Geneva, WI, needs some care before the 2022 camp season begins! We need help from individuals and families on Memorial Day weekend from Friday, May 27 to Monday, May 30 to give the camp buildings and grounds a much-needed sprucing up before the summer camp season moves into full swing. There will also be opportunities to enjoy nature in this beautiful setting and some family activities.

There are projects for a variety of skill levels! There are buildings and cabins that need to be swept and cleaned; walls that need painting; rotten wood that needs replacing; trails and paths to be cleared, raked, and rebuilt; decks and stairs to be pressure washed and stained, mulch that needs spreading; 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.

Join us!
There is no cost except a nominal cost for meals., but we need to how many people are coming so we can plan. If you are interested in participating or have any questions, contact Don or Devra Dunham at 630.362.3164 or by email here.
