Summer Camp

Camp Otterbein is all about having fun, meeting new friends, and learning about God. Whether you like soaring down our 200-foot zipline, taking a hike through the woods, sleeping out in a treehouse, or praising God around the campfire, we have something for everyone! God is present in everything we do at Camp Otterbein. Our number one rule is “Pray before you play!” Our campers learn about God’s love for them and how to better understand his call on their life. Camp Otterbein is a place where your faith can begin, grow, or thrive!

Home Away From Home

Campers get to stay in our traditional cabins in the woods. All of our cabins have air-conditioning for those hot summer nights. Younger campers stay in a cabin with an attached restroom. Older campers can use a nearby restroom just steps from your cabin. You can request a buddy on your registration who is the same gender and within two years of age. For more information about our site, check out our Facilities page.

Professional Role Models

We hire only the best staff to look after your kids at camp. Our energetic and passionate counselors and activity leaders are ready to make an unforgettable experience for your camper. Through our selective hiring process, we hire staff who can model an authentic relationship with Christ and help your camper deepen and strengthen their faith.



Fuel for Fun

Campers eat three square meals a day in our dining hall. We serve delicious and nutritious meals to keep you healthy and energized. We serve our meals family style, meaning a platter of food is brought to your table for the whole cabin to share, with plenty of seconds to go around! We will work with you to care for dietary restrictions or allergies you may have. We also serve fruit and cereal at breakfast and a full salad bar and PB&J's at lunch and dinner for our picky eaters. Snack is served around the campfire before getting ready for bed.



Safe & Sound

Camp Otterbein is accredited by the American Camp Association. We follow a rigorous set of standards and best practices set by the ACA. This distinction shows you that we are committed to providing a safe and quality experience for your kids. Find out more about the ACA accreditation process here.

We also follow best practices around church Safe Sanctuaries policies.
