80th Annual Spiritualist Summer Camp

Did you know that one of the oldest metaphysical communities is right here in Kansas? Sunset Spiritualist Church, founded in 1881, is located is Wells, KS. June 7 through June 22nd, Sunset Spiritualist Church is celebrating its 80th Annual Summer Camp. The camp features 17 days of free classes, massage therapists, Reiki healers, psychic mediums, White Dove Metaphysical Bookstore, home-cooked food, and a great community of like-minded people coming together. There are cabins available on the camp grounds as well as power hook-ups for RV's and camping is allowed on the grounds. Meals and accommodations are VERY reasonably priced.

The Annual Summer Camp predates modern psychic fairs. It is traditional within the Spiritualist Church to have its members convene as a way of building the community. During the Summer Camp Event, or Camp Season, members travel to the church for classes, message circles and even Séances. Sunset Church and Camp offers three meals a day in its main dining room and well as a newly renovated snack bar which is open almost all day. This year’s classes include Dream Therapy, Automatic Writing and Creating A Sacred Space In Your Home. All classes are free and open to the public.

Gayl Edmunds returns again this year for his very popular Drumming Circle along with the Wichita Singers. This event is also free and open to the public.

For the second year, Sunset Spiritualist Church and Camp welcomes Joseph Ward from Kansas City. His special talent is to look into a person’s soul and compose music based on your soul’s experience. Appointments for private sessions with Joseph can be made by contacting the church directly at (785) 488-3929.

Sunset Spiritualist Church was founded in 1881 originally in Delphos, Kansas. It wasn’t until 1921 that the church moved to its present location in Wells, Kansas. Over the years buildings and cabins have been added to expand the facilities. Cabins continue to be added as the popularity of this spiritualist destination has grown. The summer Camp season lasting 17 days is the church’s largest annual event, however classes and fairs continue throughout the year. Sunset Spiritualist Church also has Sunday church services as well, weather permitting.

Plan to join us this June; discover your place in one of the nation's oldest metaphysical communities.
