Explore the Hocking Hills region with a new high-adventure expedition each day. Experience God in a whole new way as you push yourself to try new things and get out of your comfort zone. Feel like you’ve done it all? Expedition camp gives you the chance to try new activities we don’t normally offer!
While Expedition campers will spend most of the day away from camp, you’ll come back each evening to stay in our cabins in the woods. You can get the feel of a traditional, rustic cabin with modern conveniences like air-conditioning and nearby restrooms.
Expedition Campers will kayak the Hocking River, rock climb and rappel in the state forest and go on a horseback trail ride through the woods. In the evenings you can enjoy some of our favorite activities back at camp like swimming in the lake and the high ropes course.
The theme for summer 2021 is Fearless Faith. What does it mean to be a part of a Christian community? How can the Church be a resource that gives you confidence and courage? You will explore how you are a part of the Church and what that means about how we relate to one another and the world. We will take a closer look into the stories of six different heroes from the Bible and learn from their courage. Watch how the strength of Christian community casts away fear and replaces it with fearless faith!
Health and safety are always our top priorities at Camp Otterbein. This summer, we’re taking extra steps to protect our campers and staff from the spread of COVID-19. You can read more about our COVID-19 protocols here.
