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 Cross on the Lake has long been an iconic image of camping ministry on these grounds and is a great space to view each morning's sunrise. The cross was rebuilt last year after sustaining heavy damage from Hurricane Irma. The new-and-improved cross pictured here is a contemporary update of this historic symbol. The shape of the letters are meant to invoke the waters of Lake Griffin, and the leaf symbolizes the many trees that adorn the property. Guests of the Life Enrichment Center have long celebrated the Live Oak trees around the property and sunsets on the lake. This new logo represents decades of spiritual growth that has occurred in these spaces, and it points toward a bright future for the camp and conference center.
We are so excited for this new name and logo, and we stand committed to our mission: to prepare a sacred space in a natural setting for all to grow in community and connect with Christ. Keep watching in the coming months for an updated website and new marketting materials.
