Camp Phillip

Camp Phillip provides relaxation in creation and renewal in Christ to youth, adults, families, churches and schools throughout the year. In 1968 the Metzger family donated 17.5 acres of land to the Milwaukee Federation of Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod Churches in memory of their brother Phillip. This property was intended to be used for children's camping and is located four miles outside of Wautoma, Wisconsin. Five years later an additional 120 acres were purchased for $14,000 to make up what has become known as Camp Phillip.

Primary Focus: Youth Ministry – camping programs

Programs: Camp Philip serves thousands of people each year both at camp and through offsite programming. Camp Phillip offers Christ-centered, creative programs to foster spiritual growth. Recent additions to programs include:

  • Sixteen pull-through campsites with electrical and water and a dumpstation were added to the campgrounds area.

  • A congregational day camp program, which travels to congregations to training for youth and congregational volunteers.

Who is Served: The camp serves young children through adult members of WELS congregations.
