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, the 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.

Grade Level Camps
A camp week at Procter Summer Camp incorporates Christian formation periods, time spent with your cabin, and outdoor activities like: swimming, arts & crafts, basketball, canoeing, blobbing, fishing, soccer, football among others. After dinner the camp participates in a large group activity together, followed by campfire, devotions in cabin groups, and lights out. Campers stay in one of our cabins with counselors. Campers should attend the camp based on what grade they will enroll in fall 2017.
