Wesley Woods is one of the hidden gems of Central Iowa. The site consists of 344 acres of rolling hills and picturesque beauty. They are open year round and always ready to talk with you about summer camp opportunities, outdoor education for school groups, horses, and retreats for families, businesses, individuals and non-profits. We have adult friendly facilities, home cooked meals and activities for everyone. Visit www.wesleywoodsiowa.org to see all they have to offer!
Wesley Woods Summer Camps >
Wesley Woods offers young people an opportunity to escape the expectations others have place on them. We acknowledge God created each camper special and unique. We want to give young people encouragement to strengthen who they are or to rewrite the direction they are heading. Through exploring the outdoors, being mentored by our staff, cooking over fires, attending worship, having tons of fun and developing new skills each camper has an opportunity to learn a little more about who they are.
Wesley Woods Retreat Center >
Hosting thousands of guests each year has become an important part of their ministry. Churches, youth groups, support groups, family reunions and more use their grounds. Retreat leaders can customize your experience by selecting housing accommodations, meals /menu choices, activities, and length of stay. Housing choices include adult friendly retreat lodges, heated/air conditioned cabins, and tent/RV sites.
Barnum Equestrian Center >
Located about ten minutes southwest of Indianola, Iowa, or 20 minutes south of Des Moines. They offer horseback riding lessons, therapeutic riding, and trail rides. They also host organizations like Girl Scouts who want to learn a little more about horses during their day trip or overnight stay. Their facility is a fantastic venue for horse shows, clinics, or saddle club outings.
