Camp Alamisco began in 1968 because of the vision of the then Alabama-Mississippi Conference leaders for a place where children and families could go to experience God through nature. Over these last 50 years, Camp Alamisco has impacted its community, its church, and countless lives.

Pastor Bill Wood - Camp Alamisco History
Bill Wood’s first experience working at camp was at Camp Kulaqua in Florida, during the summer of 1965. Little did Bill know at the time that camp ministries would become a major part of his life’s ministry working with youth. Pastor Bill went on to become the Youth/Camp Director for Flag Mountain Camp in South Dakota in 1976, and Camp Yorktown Bay in Arkansas in 1981. In 1984, Bill and his wife, Janet, were called to the Alabama-Mississippi Conference (now Gulf States Conference) to be the Youth Director and Camp Director for Camp Alamisco. During his 15 years at Alamisco, Pastor Bill saw many changes come to the camp, such as a new paved road, a new bath and shower house, new swim and boat docks, a new horse corral, and the construction of the now famous outdoor chapel overlooking beautiful Lake Martin.
While still in the Gulf States Conference, Pastor Bill Wood began assisting the camp director of the NAD, and continued that role for over 20 years. Currently, he serves as the Coordinator for Camp Ministries for the NAD and still works to strengthen camp ministries across North America.
