70 Years of Camping

The camping  ministry of the Florida Conference of the United Methodist Church has a  long tradition of Christ centered camping experiences that transform  the lives of young people. This ministry has centered around the Warren  W. Willis Camp facilities in Fruitland Park.

In 2017 the Warren Willis Camp and Life Enrichment Center merged and are now parts of the same site. The Life Enrichment Center is the retreat part of our site with hotel style accommodations.  The Warren Willis Camp is the camp part of our site with cabin style accommodations. Our facility is a beautiful camp and retreat center located on Lake Griffin, owned and operated by the Florida Conference of the United Methodist Church.  


The Florida United Methodist Camps and Retreat Ministries seek to provide:

  • Welcoming natural places set apart for sacred retreat and community.
  • Nurturing experiences in Christian faith, discipleship and leadership; and
  • A witness to the servant life of hospitality, earth care, justice and love.
