Directing Our Resources to Common Goals

Give the Gift of Camp

The children of the South Sudanese (Mabaan) UMC, our Central District mission congregation, would love to attend summer church camp at Camp Wesley Woods. Can you help? Can you contribute to the scholarship fund?

Bwanne, age 13, was able to attend camp last summer. She reports, “Wesley Woods Camp was a fun and educational camp. We prayed for each other and other people in our lives. I had an amazing time!”

The cost for Outpost Camp (ages 9-17) is $415/week. Younger children, ages 6-9, attend a three day camp at a cost of $210.

Thanks for your support of the Mabaan children to attend camp. Please send your gift of help, payable to Iowa Conference UM Camps, with “Mabaan” on the memo line, to Iowa Conference Camp Office, 2301 Rittenhouse Street, Des Moines, IA 50321.

            Thank you!
