Woodfest is an adventure-packed weekend that is held every year in mid-September at a camp in Somerset, PA. We arrive on a Friday night, then on Saturday you spend the day on the adventure trip of your choice. On Sunday, we spend the day at camp playing on all of their cool toys.

Each day we will also have a teaching and worship session designed to help people explore and grow in their faith.
