A Place to Reflect, Learn, and Grow
Procter Camp, a ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of Southern Ohio, is a place for children, youth, and families to grow in faith, sing, learn, play, and pray together.
In 2022, our programs include Youth Camp for children entering 3rd-8th grade, Senior High Camp for 9th-12th grade, Family Camps for all ages, and Day Camp for 1st-6th grade. We’ll end the summer with Silver Camp, for kids at heart, 50+.
At Procter, we learn, share, pray, and sing together every day. Campers and staff members of all (or no) faith backgrounds are welcome.
We also swim, canoe, fish, have campfires, enjoy creative arts, spend time at Procter Center Farm, play sports and wacky games, and explore the natural world around us.
My girls have been going to Procter every summer for 8 years…a truly wonderful place!!!

Each spring, we host the Camp Open House! This event teaks place along side our Spring Craft Show! Local craftsman and artists are onsite, showing off and selling their one of a kind works.
Food trucks are also in our upper lot for those wishing to enjoy a warm drink or lunch while on the property.
The Camp Open House is for everyone! Folks who have never gone to camp before, or those who are long-time camp goers, but who maybe just want to learn a little more about the inner workings of Procter. This is a time when you can take in our beautiful grounds, eat lunch under the pavilion, learn about all things camp, take tours of our farm, cottages and lodge, or get walked through any registration requirement questions from our knowledgeable staff. It will be a day full of fun and excitement with special goodies given out throughout the day. Join us!
Summer Camps 2023
2023 camp dates will be available in February.
The camps that are held there during the summer are super. My two grandchildren love it. My grandchildren told me that the food they have there is awesome. They told me, Grandma, I wish you could taste some of the food they serve us. They have so much fun there. The grounds are beautiful. Everyone that works there are so nice and helpful.
Thanks to Amy Melena for making Procter Center truly Procter Farm & Camp this year. You are absolutely the best! Thanks to Amy Boyd and Danielle Vogel for all you did in preparing for this to happen, and to Kate Howton and her team for her leadership in the camp part. Throw in the new Day Camp, led by Darien McCoy, and it was a great summer. What a team you all were.
A Day at Procter
Wake up with the farm and catch the hogs at their morning mud-pit hangout or collect eggs from the free-range chickens. By mid-day, take a dip in the lake, or cool off in a canoe. Want a more relaxed environment? It’s hard to stay awake in the hammocks, with the warm breeze passing. Be in community during creative arts or play games in the Gaga Pit! After dinner, sing your heart out at the campfire, or do some evening fishing at the pond, all equipment included. We offer so much for you. We are here to make your time fun, relaxing, and a place to create lasting memories.
Select Happy Harvest Box during registration and depart Camp with a packed box of fresh-picked vegetables from the farm! Family and Youth Camps only.
Food and Lodging
Eat, Play, Sleep, Repeat
3 Meals a Day
We always offer a variety of options, including fruits and salad. Campers are even able to bring items they have harvested at Procter Center Farm to our Dining Hall! All food safety precautions and any dietary accomodations will be provided, to ensure the safety of our staff and campers.
Campers Stay in Cottages
We have 5 cottages, where campers stay with 2 counselors.
The bathrooms have been updated in the cottages and include new showers.
Easy Drop-off and Pick-up
Our upper and lower lots ensure that you will easily be able to get in and out during drop-off and pick-up.
Our cottage rooms have twin and bunk beds and a place to store your belongings. Campers bring their own bedding.
Craft time! The barn features an indoor basketball court, and plenty of supplies for crafts, making it the ultimate indoor activity space!
Daily, our campers can choose to spend time swimming (and screaming) at the pool. Certified life-guards are on duty.
Arrival and Departure
Specific details about check-in and check-out can be found in the parent handbook. You will see directional signs and counselors to help you know where to go once you arrive.

If you are a veteran camper, or new to summer camp, we know you must have questions. To ensure your child and family have a safe and enjoyable camp experience, we have created this FAQ section for you. Safety and fun are our number one priorities, in that order! We are here to answer any questions you may have before you come to camp.
Is there a nurse onsite?
Yes, we have a LPN/RN on-site, 24 hours.
Where do I check in?
Specific information can be found in the Camp Handbook. The Camp Director will also send out an email, prior to camp, with information that you need to know, including check in time and location.
How many kids to a counselor?
Our ratios are 1 – 5 and 1 – 8, depending on how many campers are attending. We ensure that campers are well attended according to ACA standards.
How long is camp?
Our camps are different lengths, depending on the type of camp you have selected to attend, but usually three to six days.
What should we pack?
A complete list of what to pack for camp can be found in the Camp Handbook.
What does a typical day look like?
There are a lot of fun things to do at camp! The day starts at with cabin clean up to ensure the campers are in a clean environment. After breakfast, we gather for songs and orientation for the day. Cabin groups go to activities until lunch. After lunch we have FOB (flat on backs), which is a much needed rest period for busy campers. Afternoon activities start include swimming in the lake, or visiting Procter Center Farm. In the evening, we have dinner and more activities. We end our day with a campfire and devotions in the cabin. It is a full and fun day here at Procter!
Can I pick up my child early?
It is discouraged, but arrangements may be made with the Camp Director.
