Camping and Retreat Ministries serves over 20,000 people each year through camps, programs, retreats and other ministry opportunities. These ministries are broken out between six unique locations—At The Lake Ministries, Camp Allegheny, Healthy Village Learning Institute, Jumonville, Olmsted Manor Retreat Center, and Wesley Woods—that serve faith development. To increase participation, a capital campaign has been started to raise no less than $2.5 million and challenge a goal of $5 million.

In May, SUMC Outreach Committee will highlight some of the ministries served. Congregants will then be encouraged to either make a gift or a pledge to this initiative. You may learn more at
