Wesley Woods Camp, located in Clark County, Kentucky, was founded by French W. Rickard in 1976. The Camp was established to provide a camping atmosphere and fellowship in Christian living.  

Young people who attend Wesley Woods Summer Camp will have an incredible experience they will never forget. Attending Wesley Woods, campers will gain a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ, develop new friendships with other Christians their age. Activities during the week include: Bible Studies, swimming, hiking, fishing, canoeing, and worship around the campfire each evening.

Ready or Not. . .Let's Get Started! This Summer we want to invite your children to experience God through an exciting time of Bible Study, Swimming, Canoeing, Hiking, Crafts and More! This winter seemed to go on forever, but "Ready or Not" summer is coming! So, "Let's Get Started"! Our plan is to follow God's story from Creation to Eternity. We will fill the middle of the Story with discussions about brokenness, promise, rebellion, and God's Grace. So make plans for a fun time with a Higher Purpose, a time to realize your part in God's story! "Ready or Not - Let's Get Started"
