At the start of 2017, the Life Enrichment Center and Warren Willis Camp merged into one site offering sacred space in Fruitland Park. This marriage has been an involved process, and the need was clear for a name that reflected our connectedness. This year, our board approved our new name: Warren Willis United Methodist Camp and Conference Center. In addition to our new name, we have a new logo for this united ministry.

The first few weeks after summer camp are always weird. It's quiet, too quiet. All of the campers and counselors have gone home to prepare for school to  and much of our year round staff are taking some well earned vacation. God moved in big ways at camp this summer. Through studying the life of Christ and the seasons of the church calendar we learned how to live a life worth living. The memories of this summer will have to last us all year until we are all able to get back together and do this crazy thing all over again. Until then, here are some photos to help you remember.
