Summer camp is a rite of passage growing up. It’s where kids go to experience nature, make friends, and have crazy adventures. At Camp Wyoming, it’s also a place where they come to grow in faith and in their relationship with God. There is no typical day at summer camp. You might find yourself sliding down a mud slide, launching a rocket, paddling a corcl, dancing around a campfire, or crawling through a cave. We aspire to create a place of sanctuary, of beauty, of fun, and of adventure for our campers, retreat guests, and everyone in between!
Who We Are
We are looking to hire a Program Director to join our year-round staff. Camp Wyoming is a Christian summer camp and retreat center in Jones County, Iowa. We run overnight summer camp programs for all school-age kids as well as retreats and rentals for groups the rest of the year. Our site sits on 380 acres of forest. Bear Creek wanders through the property and campers enjoy boating on Frog Pond. The bluffs, caves, woods, and trails provide a natural and beautiful setting for people to escape the busyness of life to experience a time away. We have cabins and a retreat center, and we will be installing and opening a brand-new high ropes course and climbing tower this year!
