About Us

Grace Outside, as a camp and retreat ministry, grew from the rich history of the United Methodist Church and embraces the concept of grace as the unearned love of God. Whether you grew up in church or have never attended a religious service, Grace Outside offers a welcoming space where you can explore and grow in faith without judgment.

Grace Outside camp and retreat programs celebrate the uniqueness of all persons as a part of God’s creation and a gift to be enjoyed. According to God’s grace, we welcome everyone regardless of race, color, gender identity, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, social or economic class and nationality. We intentionally create an environment of safety, hospitality, and mutual respect where everyone may thrive and experience joy.

Grace Outside creates love inside!


Break free from the familiar and enjoy the moment…

…whether that means slowing down and taking in the majesty of a sunrise or sunset, or kicking it into high gear for an energized game or worship song.
