It takes some of the following steps:  Commitment, In-Exhaustible Energy and Love  for helping to form Children's lives for the better, in God's Own Time....


Summer Camp Registration is Open!  It's time to think about how your children are spending their summer vacation!

Deadline for Early Bird Registration - May 1.  Your camper will receive $20 off their summer camp fee and a Limited Edition 2019 Summer Camp T-Shirt!

Camping can satisfy what children need!  They experience faith, responsibility and cooperation as part of a caring community.  They experience self-exteem as children of God.  In a world where it is hard to be a kid, AND it is hard to be a parent, let East Ohio Camps be your partner in faith and the development of your child.  With hundreds of events to choose from, one will be right for you and your child!  Sports! Drama! Water! Horses! Great Places! Great Experiences!  All with trained, caring staff.  Contact Pastor Mary Ann, call the East Ohio Conference Camping Office at 1-330-499-3972 extention 108 or visit the site on the web at
