Kids and Family Camps: Let the kids take a break and experience traditional camp, or specialty camps for paintball, horseback riding, and skateboarding. Even better, bring the whole family for a fun filled weekend at Camp Wood

Weddings: If your dream is for an outdoor wedding in a picturesque setting, Camp Wood YMCA has several locations to choose from. Indoor locations are also available. From small, intimate weddings with just your immediate family to weddings of over 300 people, Camp Wood YMCA can do it all – including your reception, too.

Retreats and Reunions: Get away from the four walls that confine you! Camp Wood understands that every group has different goals and needs. Our trained and experienced staff will work closely with each group to customize programs that address specific group needs. Whether it’s departmental relations, internal communications, or just needing to get away from the usual surroundings, we’ll help you build the perfect retreat. With ample lodging, meeting rooms and dining services available, groups can concentrate on the business at hand.

The property sits on 24 acres and there is a wonderful gathering spot outside the back doors.  We are located 10 minutes from the National Tallgrass Prairie Preserve if hiking is on your agenda.

Starry Night on the Prairie can be booked for private events.  It has bed space for six.  The cost to rent the space is $600* for a two-night rental.  A one-night rental is $400*.  Additional nights can be added for $200* per night.

There is meeting room and separate dining room space for 16 people.  There are several local hotels, guest houses, and bed and breakfast estasblishments within a ten minute drive if you need additional bed space.   I offer food prepared on premise for your over-night guests for an additional charge of $12.50 per person per meal.  I have a list of caterers that can bring food in or there are several restaurants within a five to ten minute drive.  There is also a refrigerator and microwave provided and with prior arrangements you may use my fully equipped kitchen to prepare your food in.

All bed and bath linens are provided.  Check in and check out times are very flexible.

If you want to hold a retreat and need an audience I can send the details of your event to my mailing list and advertise it on this website.  I can link you to your event page so participants can contact you directly.

To reserve your space I need a deposit of $300 with the balance due upon arrival.  The deposit is non-refundable unless I am able to rebook the space.  It will be your responsibility to collect fees from your participants and you will be responsible for paying the entire amount.
