Procter Summer Camp, a ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of Southern Ohio, creates a place for children, youth, and families to grow in faith, sing, learn, play and pray in the peaceful farmland of London, Ohio. By demonstrating and encouraging Christian community we are showing daily what the world could be like. At Procter, we are intentional about sharing God’s love with one another and our campers; children and adults. We seek and serve Christ in all people with whom we interact at camp, modeling joy, respect, and inclusiveness.
Procter Summer Camp strives to be a place for all people to play, pray, learn, and grow. Mornings at camp are include a fun, engaging Christian formation program. Rooted in Scripture and guided by the week’s theme, formation is led by camp counselors and a Chaplain. In the afternoons campers have a choice free choice periods for recreation. Some options might be: swimming and pool games, arts & crafts, yoga or meditation, basketball, canoeing, fishing, soccer, or nature walks. Procter is home to a lake for swimming and canoeing, a pond to fish in, fields for large group games and sports, and an Arts and Crafts cottage to explore your creativity. After dinner the camp participates in a large group activity together, followed by campfire, devotions in cabin groups, and lights out. Campers stay in a cabins with counselors and similar age campers.
“I look forward to coming to Procter all year long. I love all the people who are here, I come because this is the way the world should be. I feel Procter brings out the best in everyone”
“Procter makes me feel like I have a safe haven”
"Procter Summer camp is the highlight of my summer, always!"
"This camp is full of great people. The counselors and campers allow me to be myself and grow closer to God”
Family Camp offers an opportunity to spend quality time together in Christian community without worrying about meals, planning activities or spending on an elaborate vacation. Like youth camps, we start each day with music and song, a daily story and Christian Formation program led by the Chaplain and counselors. We might do service project, art project in Family groups, and adult bible study is offered. In the afternoons the pool is open for free swim, and families can sign up for a variety of activities: canoeing, a trip to the Procter Farm, various sports activities, arts and crafts, music, tennis, or fishing, for example. Spend your time taking a walk, chatting with friends, visiting the labyrinth or reading a book in the rocking chairs; all activities are optional, so you can plan your camp day around your family's needs. Come to Family Camp for joyous community, to relax and recharge as a family.
“Procter is an awesome family experience, with quality time away in a great community. It has been a transformational experience for my children. “
“Procter is a beautiful, peaceful place where our family can be together and be ourselves.”
“There are few places where middle class families, urban families, grandparents, LGBT families, homeless families and college student can share life together… Family Camp is one!”
