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.

Canadian Wilderness Canoe Trips

Are you looking for a chance to get away from all the noise and demands of the world? Do you want to find a place that’s simpler, quieter, and peaceful; so you can reconnect with God?

Join us for a week of wilderness canoeing and camping in the north woods of Ontario. For seven days and nights we travel through a rugged and beautiful land of lakes, rivers, and forests. Along the way, we look for wildlife and camp on the lakeshore. Around the campfire, we learn about God, the wonders of his creation, and what it means to follow Jesus in community. This trip is physically demanding and involves primitive camping. Previous canoeing and camping experience is helpful, but not necessary. The cost of the trip includes canoeing and camping equipment, most meals, and transportation. Open to adults and teens at least 15 years old. If you are 19 or older, you must have a passport.
