Welcome to Templed Hills Camp and Conference Center

Camp is and remains a special place set apart from the rest of our existence. It is a place where we come for respite, to connect with other people in a genuine way that is not the same in other settings, and it is a thin place where we feel closer to God and can strengthen our relationship with Him in ways no other setting can.

Due to Covid-19 camp is currently quiet and we are preparing to welcome guests and camp sessions later this year.

We are planning for summer camp 2021 and hope you are looking   forward to participating. Although we all hope that the pandemic will be over soon, we believe that it will still be among us this summer. We are planning both in person opportunities and virtual/remote opportunities, including a camp-in-a-box through the mail, Zoom-type camp sessions, and of course our camp website.

Many summer camps across the country were held successfully in person during the summer of 2020. Following their success, we believe we can do so in 2021. All on-site programs at Templed Hills for 2021 will be planned and conducted using strict protocols. We are setting up protocols to follow all the state of Ohio resident sector guidelines, the best practices of fellow camps who ran successfully in 2020, and the CDC updated recommendations. We understand that some families will be ready to send their children or come as a family and some will not. Therefore, we will be offering a variety of options. We also will be holding many zoom meetings starting in February to talk to families and explain what camp will look like this summer, as it will be vastly different from 2019. We encourage everyone to attend to determine what is the best match for your family’s situation. We anticipate registration will also open by early March.

Please note that anything could change based on the constantly changing landscape due to Covid-19. Thank you for understanding and we look forward to seeing you soon!

The Hills are Alive! Capital Campaign

The Hills are Alive campaign is a capital campaign for long range capital improvements to Templed Hills Camp and Conference Center and camp scholarships. This Campaign was scheduled to end December 31, 2020. Due to Covid-19 we have paused and extended this campaign to cover the day-to-day expenses at camp with the Camp 2.0 campaign. With your help to get through the pandemic shut
down, we anticipate reinvigorating “The Hills are Alive campaign” for future development. Click here for more information and to donate to Hills are Alive.
