If your child is planning a future trip to Woodleaf or is here right now, we want you to have the information you need to rest easy while he or she is away. There are many activities at camp in which your child may be participating. Whether they are challenged on the high ropes course, playing on the waterfront or spending time in the game room, their safety is our top concern.

What to Bring:

  • Hangout at camp clothes
  • Sunscreen
  • Bathing suit and beach towel
  • At least one pair long pants for some activities
  • Spending money for snack bar and store
  • Sweatshirt for cold evenings
  • Close-toed shoes for some activities
  • One nice outfit (think collared shirt or sundress)
  • Messy outfit (that can be thrown out)
  • Toiletries
  • Medications
  • Rain jacket
  • Camera (not a phone)


Young Life and Woodleaf maintain the highest level of safety and standards in operation of all of our activities at camp.

All of Woodleaf's challenge course elements (ropes course, alpine tower and giant swing) are inspected and approved by The Association of Challenge Course Technology and by Signature Research. All elements are operated and supervised by our staff who have been fully trained and certified to do so, ensuring your child's comfort and safety.

Woodleaf's Ridge Runners and Mountain Bike programs are also facilitated by trained and experienced staff. Your child will be in good hands while at Woodleaf.

In the event of an accident, there is always a qualified medical professional on call to tend to your child's needs.


We welcome kids of all abilities to our camps. At Woodleaf, all of our main buildings are accessible to strollers or wheelchairs, and we have a handful of cabins that are designed to be accessible (special housing needs may be requested by your child's trip leader).

We will do our best to help every guest participate in activities. We want every kid to have the best week of their life as they come to camp! ​
