United Methodist Camps

Our United Methodist camps and retreat centers are gearing up for their summer camping season. Our theme this summer is “Best. Week. Ever.” Each summer thousands of youth, families, and adults participate in programming offered by Iowa UM camps. Lives are impacted and children come to know the living God through this powerful camping experience. Our camp sites include Pictured Rocks, Okoboji, and Wesley woods.

Youth will experience worship three times a day with a professional praise team and some of the best preachers in the Iowa Annual Conference. Summer Games University encourages young people to live lives based the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
