We host overnight camps varying from three to six days in length for completed grades K – 12. Taking part in The Camp White Experience is the perfect way to make friends, learn new skills, and create lifetime memories on a lake in the beautiful Flint Hills. We offer a variety of camping choices; there is something for everyone. Some camps focus on outdoor education and others give students a chance to grow their faith in a unique environment. We offer camps on physical fitness, social awareness, nature preservation and good old fashion playing outside. No matter which camp you choose, our goal is to make you feel welcome – and to have a ton of fun, of course! Our scenic location, easy lake access, focus on safety, communication, and our delicious food help set us apart from other camps. Browse our site to see some of the activities we offer, and check out the camp descriptions below.  Hope to see you soon!

Camp Celebrate       
All ages
June 9 – June 14, 2019

For 55 years, WMC has helped nurture the spiritual growth of campers, families, churches and individuals. Each person is on their own faith journey, and we aim to provide that person a community and safe space to explore and grow their faith in the beauty of the Flint Hills. Not to mention, we have a crazy-fun time doing it! Many churches simply don’t have the resources or funds to provide outdoor ministries. This week is designed to allow church groups a chance to attend camp by partnering with our professional staff and other churches. We’ll share our faith by taking turns leading services and working together during the week. We’ll learn about each other’s congregations while joining in the fun of fifty years of camp traditions. So, come laugh with us. Let’s play outside, learn about nature, and build something together! All ages. Contact us for more information.
