Wesley Woods United Methodist Camp in Indianola, IA is continuing to impact lives in the name of Christ this fall season. October 17, 2020, from 1-4 pm is the annual Fall Festival at camp, and Gracie Green, the Program Coordinator at Wesley Woods, is excited to host youth and families.
“It’s going to be so great having people back on grounds in this new way,” says Gracie. “With COVID-19 we have been looking for different ways to be flexible while still keeping people safe. The Fall Festival is a way that we are able to get people to Wesley Woods and celebrate the fall season.”
The Fall Festival will take place from 1-4 pm this upcoming Saturday and there is no cost to attend. Gracie is looking forward to seeing both new and familiar faces again. “I’m so excited to see some of our summer staff and volunteers again. When you’re at camp the energy is so great and I just know families are going to enjoy their time on Saturday. It’s going to a beautiful day, why not spend some time at camp?”
While on-site participants can expect a drive-through experience with crafts, s’ mores, pumpkins, horses, and opportunities for family photos as people tour the site. Friendly staff and volunteers from Wesley Woods will run program areas and help keep people safe by ensuring social distancing and hand washing.
Gracie says staff at Wesley Woods are also continuing to prepare for a full fall and winter season in anticipation of a huge summer camp program in 2021. “We have already attended a number of Trunk or Treat events at churches and in communities and would love to do more,” says Gracie, “so don’t hesitate to contact us as we would love to be part of your community.”
Iowa United Methodist Camps are already registering campers for summer 2021 and spots are filling. “Summer registrations are much higher than they were at this time last year and we are thrilled,” says Gracie. “People really miss camp, and we can’t wait to see everyone!”
