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 22-31 AND July 30 - August 8, 2018
Join us for a week of wilderness canoeing and camping in the north woods of Ontario’s Algonquin Provincial Park. We will travel through a rugged and beautiful land of lakes, rivers, and forests. Along the way, we look for wildlife and camp on the shore. Around the campfire, we learn about God, the wonders of his creation, and what it means to follow Jesus in community. While previous canoeing and camping experience is helpful, it is not necessary. The cost of the trip includes equipment and transportation. Open to adults and teens at least 15 years old. If you are 19 or older, you must have a passport.
2018 Trip Dates: July 22-31, led by Revs. Scott Hamley and Craig Lindahl
July 30 to August 8, led by Rev. Dave Coul, Rev. Drew Myers and Lindsey Myers.
