Retreats & Rentals
Wildwood Ranch has facilities available for rent to organizations for weekend retreats or week-long camps. Wildwood is open year-round for retreats and conferences! However, from Memorial Day through the third week of August we limit rentals to weekends only. (During those weeks of the summer, our primary goal is to serve the children and youth at our camp by presenting opportunities and experiences to them that will enhance their lives, broaden their horizons and expand future opportunities).
We have hosted church youth groups, church board planning sessions, worship teams, girl scouts and boy scouts, leadership training seminars, class and teacher team building outings, outdoor education programs, band camps, college fellowship groups and company picnics, just to name a few.

“Hospitality involves setting a table that makes everyone feel comfortable.
It chooses a menu that allows face time with guests instead of being chained to the stovetop.
It picks up the house to make things pleasant, but doesn’t feel the need to conceal evidences of everyday life.
It sometimes sits down to dinner with flour in its hair.
It allows the gathering to be shaped by the quality of the conversation rather than the cuisine.
Hospitality shows interest in the thoughts, feelings, pursuits, and preferences of its guests.
It is good at asking questions and listening intently to answers.
Hospitality focuses attention on others.”
