What is Woodlake Kids?

Woodlake Kids is the children’s ministry of Woodlake UMC for children ages birth through 5th grade.  Each child who comes through our doors is important to us and will be cared for by loving staff and volunteers who seek to connect with them and their families.  Children will be taught to explore their faith while learning what it means to take their next step in following Jesus.

Follow our weekly WoodlakeKids News emails for updates to these activities.

Woodlake Kids in June

Camp Woodlake

We know you love VBS at Woodlake and it is a highlight of our year! We are not able to do VBS this year in the same way we have done it in the past, but we are preparing a great alternative called Camp Woodlake. Join us on the Rocky Railway at Camp Woodlake for Bible teaching, awesome activities, and fun with your friends. We’ll learn how Jesus pulls us through! Our program for elementary children will be held outdoors and our preschool program will be indoors.  Class space will be limited. It’s going to be the best week of the summer!

6:00-8:00 p.m. | $20 per camper

Registration will open for volunteers and their children on May 24th , for WUMC church families June 7th, and for the community June 21st
