Counselor & Camper

Camp Galilee is a United Methodist Camp located near El Dorado Springs, Missouri. We are one of four camp sites for the Missouri Annual Conference.

During the summer we offer a large variety of camps for all ages, different types of groups, and specific interest areas.

The camp is also used for various groups throughout the year for retreats, reunions, meetings, receptions, weddings, races, and team building.

Camp is a magical, friendly place visited by more than 1,000 campers and counselors each summer season. Galilee is proud of the diversity of camps we offer. Some camps are as large as 100 people and some as small as 10. Galilee offers specialized camps like archery, fishing, and sports. There is a good chance we have a camp that is a perfect fit for your camper.



"The island has always been my favorite ever since I can remember. I was first saved there and found God and every year I have always found a reason to rededicate my life to Christ at that very spot."​

" I had fun at the slip 'n' slide, shaving cream war, and worship time. Worship time on the last night was awesome! We got to have communion. Thank you every staff and counselor for etting us come to Camp Galilee and have a great time.

"I LOVED the nature where its quiet and to grow closer to God with quiet time and friends."
