Cedarbrook Camp of Ohio is a not-for-profit camping ministry dedicated to providing an outdoor living experience where campers can discover the joy of living the Christian Life 24/7. Camper fees only cover a part of our operating budget. We rely on YOU to fill in the gaps.
And while we try to keep our registration fees as low as possible, sometimes it’s hard for families to send their children to Cedarbrook. There are a number of need-based scholarships available for those needing financial assistance.
If you would like to donate a financial gift to Cedarbrook Camp of Ohio’s General Fund or to our Scholarship Fund, please don’t hesitate to send a check or to donate through UltraCamp. You could also use the PayPal button after the next paragraph.

Dear Friends of Cedarbrook Camp of Ohio,
As our camping season has come to an end and summer fades away, our “quests” continue on with the crunching of the leaves underfoot and the setting sun adding even more brilliant colors to the changing trees. This part of the year is my favorite time to be outside in God’s creation, enjoying the cooler air by day on a hike and gathering around a warm campfire at night. The glow of the firelight brings back memories of the summer and time to reflect on all that God has provided.
This summer marked a major milestone for the ministry. By God’s grace we were privileged to celebrate our 70th anniversary. For seventy years we have witnessed girls and boys learn new skills, meet new friends, cultivate positive relationships, build leadership skills, and most importantly grow in their relationships with Christ. It is evident that God is working in camp. His presence and power are not only displayed around the grounds but through the testimonies of the campers themselves. These are a few comments from campers and parents from this past year:
“My kids can’t stop talking about their week. Connection with God, the counselors and friends made. The activities were a huge part of their week as well.”
“She learned to think of herself less, and others more, as well as the need to spend more time with God.”
“I learned a lot during Bible Ex and no matter what God loves us all.”
“My counselors helped me grow closer to God.”
“I loved all of the people and all of the fun and growing closer to Jesus.”
Many, many more of these testimonies can be heard around the Friday night fire each week during the summer. Each one of them is made possible by you, your donation, your willingness to serve, your prayers, and your investment in the next generation. We couldn’t do it without you! Thank you for your generosity and faithfulness. Please continue to pray for the ministry as plans for the 2018 season are already underway. Pray for the campers, staff, God’s provision, and for another seventy years…
For His glory,
