2020 Summer Camping Program Suspended Due to COVID-19

The West Ohio Camping & Retreat Ministries has made the difficult decision to suspend all summer camp programs due to the coronavirus. 

"The health, safety and well-being of our campers and staff are very important to us," said Director Ken Overholser. "The decision was made after many hours of conversation, discernment, and prayer with conference leadership, camping and health care officials."  

Full refunds are available to those already registered and to churches that have paid fees. Options include:

  1. Call or email for a full refund.
  2. Transfer the funds toward summer 2021 and receive a free camp hoodie next summer. 
  3. Offer to donate all or a portion of your fees paid as a tax-deductible contribution to West Ohio Camps. Donations may help keep the program afloat during this very difficult time.

"The season may be suspended but plans are under way to keep our campers and staff engaged in other ways," Overholser said.  

The mission of the West Ohio Camps is to provide a spiritual, relational, and recreational environment where everyone can experience the love of Jesus. More information will be available at westohiocamps.orgPlease direct any questions to koverholser [at] or call the conference center at 614-844-6200.
