Day Camp

Thank you for a great 2019 Camp Season. Registration for the 2020 season opens February 1st. 

For the 13th year in a row, Woodcrest Retreat was voted a winner in Lancaster Newspaper Reader’s Choice Awards!

Parents! Have you searched tirelessly for a fun and engaging place for your child(ren) to spend a week or more of their summer? Seeking to find a safe place where you can confidently leave your child each morning on your way to work? Is your child a bit uncertain of staying away from home overnight? Well look no further!

The Discovery program is for ages 6-11 while the Trekkers program is for ages 12-14. Both provide a place to learn and grow here on the Ephrata Mountain. These programs are full of adventure and excitement and include plenty of outdoor activities, games, crafts, Bible lessons and water fun.

Children are grouped with other similar ages and guided by caring and trained counselors. Camp is about relationships, so we ensure that our staff have been carefully selected to represent quality Christian character, have obtained all necessary background checks, and are mandated reporter and CPR certified. Camp themes, games, crafts, nature lessons, and Bible lessons are different each week.

Monday – Friday 9 AM – 4 PM

Lunch and snack are provided.
