Whether you're a seasoned camper or this may be your first adventure, we encourage you to consider spending a weekend away with your LAC family at beautiful Woodcrest Retreat in Ephrata, PA.  Camping is a great way to enjoy God's extraordinary creation while connecting with others. If you're interested in camping but don't have the basics, don't fret! Click HERE to contact Kelvin & Anita, your weekend hosts, and we'll work together to equip you. Plus, if someone at the campground doesn't have what you need, no worries because WalMart is a few minutes away. 


  • Overnight Camping - Since you're putting all the work into camping, camp for the weekend! You can extend your camping weekend by adding Thursday evening to your weekend reservation. See fee schedule below.
  • Guest Day Pass - If you're not camping overnight, you can purchase a Guest Day Pass for $3/person. The cost covers Woodcrest Retreat's day usage and pool entrance fee as well as access to the seemingly never-ending soft serve ice cream provided by the church. Everyone is welcome to come early that morning for breakfast at the Motter campsite. Those coming are asked to contribute a morning drink (juices, etc.). Breakfast food, coffee, and paper products are provided. Lunch is on your own.
  • Saturday Evening Camping Cookout - Returning for its second year! Whether you're camping overnight or coming for the day, join us for an evening cookout. Tickets are required for everyone (overnight and non-overnight guests) and cost is $3/person. Burgers, hot dogs, rolls, and paper products will be provided. Families are asked to provide a side dish (hot or cold to feed 10-12 people). Remember to bring your lawn chairs so we can eat, weather permitting, in the beautiful outdoors; otherwise we'll dine in the beautiful Indian Rock Center. 


  • Water/Electric - $90/weekend + $36 for Thursday (optional) 
  • Water/Electric/Sewer - $100/weekend + $39 for Thursday (optional)
