CAMP LAKE STEPHENS

United Methodist Camp & Retreat Center

Committed to being a place where children, youth, and adults can encounter God and respond in faith to God’s call to transform the world.

The Summer Camp program invites children and youth of all ages to experience fun and fellowship in the midst of God’s beautiful creation.

Retreat season is a time for groups of all ages and the surrounding community to experience the sacred grounds of camp in the non-summer months.

Interested in supporting camp? There are a number of ways to give your time, energy, and resources. Check out the many ways to give back to camp!

The Outdoor Education program provides field trip opportunities for K-12 students, with a focus on experiential learning and ecological sustainability.
