Camping and Retreat Ministries
Congregations of the Western PA Conference know the importance of strengthening Christ-focused foundations of all disciples.
One way we nurture this personal growth is through the programs and facilities of our four camps and retreat center. Olmsted Manor, Wesley Woods, Camp Allegheny, and Jumonville are all dedicated to serving the diverse population of Western PA by offering unique experiences for connecting with God, having fun, and developing spiritual maturity in a natural setting.

July 31 - August 9, 2017
This event offers a week-long wilderness experience of canoeing and primitive camping in the north woods of Ontario's Algonquin Provincial Park. Campers enjoy seeing wildlife in a rugged and beautiful land of lakes, rivers, and forests. Around the campfire, we talk about God, the wonder of his creation, and what it means to live our faith in fellowship with others. Prior canoeing and camping experience is helpful, but not necessary. The cost of the trip includes most canoeing and camping equipment, as well as transportation from Erie, PA to and from Algonquin Park. This event is open to adults and teens who are at least 15 years old.
