CAMP FONTANELLE

The 2017 maze commemorates Nebraska's 150th statehood anniversary.  The maze is one of Nebraska's 150 official event sites with references of the sower and covered wagon as symbols of our heritage. Camp Fontanelle was created in 1959 by the United Methodist Church with the main mission of creating an atmosphere of intentional Christian community through summer camping programs. Our faith based summer camps are available from Memorial Day through mid-August. We have residential camps for ages 4 -18 with preschool through 2nd graders attending with a trusted adult. Anyone can come to camp, not just those attending a United Methodist Church. The corn maze and pumpkin patch is a fundraising and educational mechanism to support our main mission. Your generosity and participation are much appreciated. Camp Fontanelle has 183 acres of trails and nature and now serves both adults and children through its programming. The camp is available for other groups (scouting retreats, reunions, confirmation retreats, youth groups, birthday parties, etc.) for the remainder of the months. Heated and air-conditioned facilities, lodging, and meals are available to groups making reservations. Programs for groups include outdoor laser tag, movie nights, jumping pillow, zip lines, sleeping in tree boats, swimming, water slides, challenge course, and recreational tree climbing. Requests for information and reservations can be made by contacting Camp Fontanelle. More information and pictures are available on our website at www.campfontanelle.com
