We’re headed outside this summer! To help stop the spread of COVID-19, Camp Otterbein is serving all our meals outside. We need your help to purchase picnic tables so our campers have somewhere to sit. Imagine picnic tables spread out across the lawn in the picture above with campers enjoying eating together outside!

We have selected high quality steel-frame picnic tables that will hold up to a beating from campers and stand the test of time. For everyone to have a place to sit, we need 16 tables. Each table costs $275 including the frame kit and lumber.

We can’t make this summer happen without your help! Please consider donating a table to help create a life-changing experience for campers this summer! You can make donations online by clicking “Donate” at the top of the page or by mailing checks to:... continue reading.

Summer Camps 2021

Staff training enters its final week as we prepare for Opening Day of summer Camps 2021! At long last we are open and well prepared to host campers and retreat groups all summer long. It's been too long. We have missed everyone! Please review the Health & Safety Guideliines for COVID 19 which have been updated May 29, 2021. We have been able to lighten some restrictions but as the majority of our campers are 12 and under, many campers will not be vaccinated. Mask wearing is not necccesary outside unless interacting closely with other Family Groups. Campers will be in Family Groups of 25 for the duration of camp and will not need masks while within their Family Group. Many meals and most activities will be outside. Carry a mask in your pocket at all times and stay in your group. Have a blessed and safe summer in God's great creation!

Blessings to you,

Ken Overholser – Director of Camping & Retreat Ministries
