Summer Camp 2022 - What's In A Name?

"What's In A Name?" is the theme for our summer camp experience this year! We'll learn about Christ's grace when we make mistakes and how God's love greets us when we open our hearts. As we grown, learn, and discover our true self, we define our own name and found our place as a child of God. 

Downers Grove First United Methodist Church is offering this summer camp experience for children and youth from 2nd to 9th grade at the Wesley Woods Retreat Center, Williams Bay, WI from June 27-30. The grade listed is the grade the student will be entering in the fall of 2022.

Camp lasts only one week - but what campers take home can last a lifetime! Camp offers children and youth with the opportunity for fellowship with other children, youth, and adults from the church and community. It offers time to experience God's creation while exploring nature. Camp is also a wonderful chance to experience Christian community and develop skills for Christian living.
