Business & Church Sponsorships

Business & Church Sponsorships

Business and Church Sponsorships are a great way for community organizations and businesses to partner with Woodcrest in our mission of introducing people to good news of Jesus Christ and encourage them to grow in a healthy relationship with Him. In the course of a year, over 35,000 people step onto the campus to experience the wonder of God. Numbers are never the ultimate evidence of what God is doing, but they are one way that we can show our partners that God is leading Woodcrest in exciting ways.

  • God brought 1,930 campers to Woodcrest to hear the Gospel in summer 2023.
  • Since the summer before Covid, God has grown Woodcrest by 444 campers (a 29% increase). That includes a 105% increase in our Trekkers Teen Day Camp.
  • We served 857 families with our 8-weeks of summer camp.
  • 25% of our campers self-identified as unchurched.
  • Our summer campers came from 226 different churches.
  • 108 campers reported a significant spiritual moment including 33 first time commitments to receive Christ.
  • We partnered with Angle Tree Ministries to provide a free week of camp for three campers with an incarcerated parent.
  • We award over $17,000 in camper scholarship funds.
  • Because youth were at camp in 2023, we created 88,000+ hours of screen-free time as campers enjoyed being outdoors and actively playing.

When you sponsor a Woodcrest Retreat event, you are helping to make that happen. To show our appreciation, we want our guests to know who is partnering with us.
