For over 50 years this campground has served both kids and adults from all walks of life. Thousands have enjoyed it's beauty and countless memories have been made here. Built in the 1960's by the Methodist Church, the camp was first known as Camp Kaetzell.
A couple decades later in 1987, the Woodmen of the World life insurance company purchased the property from the Methodist Church and changed it's name to the Woodmen Youth Camp (also known as the WOW Camp). For 30 years Woodmen maintained and operated the camp while serving young people from all over the state.
On June 1st 2017, the New family purchased the camp, beginning the camp's third generation.
It is now known as Timber Oaks Retreat.
"Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others,
as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms." 1 Peter 4:10
Our mission is to serve others by providing a place where Christian learning, fellowship and worship is always welcome. It's through God's grace that we have been blessed with this property and this opportunity.
May God be praised and lives changed at Timber Oaks Retreat.
