About Us

West Ohio Camps is the Camp and Retreat ministry of the West Ohio Conference of the United Methodist Church. Our three camps provide a place for fun, fellowship, and faith building. We offer opportunities for children, youth, and adults to relax in the great outdoors and grow closer to God.

Our Mission

West Ohio Camps provide a spiritualrelational, and recreational environment where everyone can experience the love of Jesus.

Our Values

“You can have fun here.”

We build confidence and self-esteem by getting out of our comfort zones and trying new things.


“You belong here.”

We love and accept everyone unconditionally and create an environment of support and encouragement.


“You can grow here.”

We spend time in worship, in prayer, and reading the Bible to grow closer to God and to hear God’s call for our lives.

 Our Beliefs

We believe that God loves every one of us and is seeking to form a closer relationship with us. Camp is an environment uniquely suited to helping people form and strengthen their relationship with God, and our programs are designed to help campers do so. Everyone is welcome at our camps, no matter your background. You can find more information about the beliefs of the United Methodist Church here.
