The power of camp is the opportunity to see that life is greater when we make space for others in our lives instead of always focusing on ourselves . . . it is finding that working as a team accomplishes more than one person alone could accomplish . . . it is finding the Truth in life and experiencing life as it is meant to be . . . it is God’s power at work to transform and shape lives. WLD Ranch understands the power of camp. We live it.
Since 1963, WLD Ranch has provided life-changing experiences to people in the Erie area and beyond. Though Wayne Leonard Davis’ personal dream of sharing Jesus with his community was tragically cut short by his untimely death, that dream did not end. His parents donated property to the Federated Church of East Springfield to start WLD Ranch in his memory to help people find that truth for their lives. Our mission expresses our desire to carry forward Wayne's dream: to guide campers and guests to Jesus as the truth in life.
Located in Fairview township, PA, the western ranch atmosphere coupled with a friendly staff encourages experiences that make a difference in guests’ lives. Campers experience a combination of friendship building, focused learning, faith development, and fun. We see the difference camp makes when guests find the truth for their lives and experience life as it is meant to be. When people step away from the routines of life by coming to WLD Ranch, they can return home with a renewed perspective. (Learn more about our ministry here.)
