Camp Christian

Invitation to Virtual Camp 2020!

Dear Ohio Region,

reading graphic

In late April, we shared the tough news of the decision to close Camp Christian for summer 2020 for the health and safety of all of those who are involved with our camping program.  It was a devastating decision, but we knew it was what was right for us to do.

Since then, we have been hard at work developing programming and options to make available to the region.  The directors and ADs from the various camps have been meeting and talking through what some of our alternative options could be and we are very pleased to announce that we will be able to provide online camp alternatives for all of our camp programs!devastating decision, but we knew it was what was right for us to do.

Our directors have done an incredible job of brainstorming, sharing resources, and coming up with some creative alternatives so that anyone who wants to will be able to share in our programs this summer!  Using a virtual-camp portal, we will be sharing in camp songs, lessons, quest groups, keynotes, evening vespers services, and even hoe-downs, talent shows!

We will be following the condensed camp schedule that was provided at the beginning of April when we were exploring alternative options for camp this summer.  It is as follows:

CYF – July 5-11
Chi Rho – July 12-18
Jr. Camp (Ribbit & Otter) – July 19-25
Advance – July 26-August 2

Most of the programming provided for the week of camp will include videos, music, and documents that will be available for you to use and view at your leisure, or even after the week is done.  However, some of the activities will be held at specific times and dates (i.e. a zoom small group gathering or cabin meeting) so it will still be important to try and be available for your specific week of programming.

Those who have already sent in an RSVP to camp have already received this email.  If you have not previously RSVPd, you will need to email adicken@ccinoh.org with the following information:

  • Camper Name
  • Grade the Camper just completed (or age if you are out of high school)
  • Email address that is best to send log-in information for the virtual camp portal

When you send in that information, you will be registered on the virtual-camp portal.  You will be sent an email to confirm your log-in information so that you can take part in the activities.  You will also get a follow up email from the director(s) of your particular week to welcome you to your specific week of online programming.  If there are any questions or if you need help with any part of this process, please reach out to Alan at adicken@ccinoh.org.

We know that it will not be the same as being at Camp Christian.  But we also know that the spirit of Camp Christian is the Holy Spirit and that the ministry of Camp is not tied to the place, but tied to our hearts and our spirits of love and compassion.

In that spirit, we hope to see you all this summer.  We hope you will share this opportunity with your friends.  We hope the love of God that we know through Jesus Christ, which we come to feel at Camp Christian will still find its way into your heart in 2020.  And we pray for continued health and strength that we may all be back together again next summer.

Peace and Love,
Rev. Alan Dicken
Regional Program Director

The full Camp Christian Endowment Fund Policy can be downloaded by clicking HERE.

The Regional Church Council of the CCIO has established a Permanent Endowment Fund for the maintenance, care and development of Camp Christian.  The RCC, in consultation with the Christian Church Foundation, felt this was the best way to establish a permanent source of funding for Camp Christian.  All end-of-life gifts that are designated by the donor for Camp Christian will automatically flow into this fund.

Donors who want to contribute money can do so in one of several ways: 

  • A gift designated to Camp Christian Operations.  This gift will be used solely to fund Camp operations, and can be used in its entirety as needed to maintain and operate Camp.
  • A gift designated to the Camp Christian Endowment Fund.  Since it is a permanent fund, gifts to the fund will be used solely to generate income for the maintenance, care and development of Camp Christian. The original gift will be held in perpetuity to generate income for Camp.
  • A gift designated for a specific project.  For example, we recently received contributions to fund Christmas bonuses for the staff, another to replace a broken water heater, and another to improve accessibility at camp.
  • A gift designated to a specific ministry of the Christian Church in Ohio, e.g., youth camp scholarships, seminary assistance through the Commission on Ministry, or any other ministries currently in operation.
  • A gift designated to the Christian Church in Ohio Operations generally. This gift will benefit any / all ministries of the Region, including scholarships, Commission on Ministry, etc.


When making a donation, it is important to specify - in writing - how your gift should be used.  This documentation will help ensure your gift is used as you intended. 


May God bless your gifts for the advancement of the beloved community.
