Buy A Brick; Build A Faith Campaign *(THE STORY)

Leaving a Legacy for the Future . . .

We’re Expanding! Sixty years ago, a group of individuals with a vision purchased and developed the land that is now Wesley Woods Camp & Retreat Center. Since that time, it has been a premier place for summer youth camping and adult retreats in Michigan. With 200% growth in the number of summer campers over the past thirteen years, there is an increasing need for more programming space and dining facilities. We recognize the importance of both, feeding people physically and spiritually. This unprecedented growth has presented great challenges in these areas. We have been blessed with many volunteers and devoted friends who have increased sleeping space for campers by raising funds and building nine new cabins, but we lack adequate space for programming and meals. Our Chapel, which seats 140, is often filled with more than 250 campers and staff during our summer morning worship. Our Dining Hall seats only 136, so we have to seat up to 120 campers and staff outside under tents. The kitchen and prep areas were originally designed to prepare meals for groups of up to 96, so it is less than half the size needed to serve our numbers. With these challenges come great responsibilities. We need to provide more programming, worship, and dining space to accommodate our increasing constituency, and leave a legacy for future generations. We plan to expand our existing Dining Hall and build a new Worship/Multi-purpose Center. Doing so will maximize our effectiveness in ministering to those who already attend summer camp, and also reach a greater number of campers year-round. We cannot meet this challenge alone - we need your help! The Buy a Brick; Build a Faith campaign is a campaign that will raise funds for both projects simultaneously. Your contributions will help us move toward a better equipped, more useful facility that will allow us to “Impact Lives with Jesus Christ”, and leave a legacy for the next 60 years of ministry.
