Summer Camp at Templed Hills


REGISTRATION OPEN: It is time. Registration is NOW OPEN for our 2021 Summer Camps. The Heartland Conference U.C.C. owns and operates Templed Hills Camp and Conference Center in Bellville, OH. This summer they will be offering a variety of camps for ALL ages. You are really never too young and definitely never too old to go to camp. If you don’t know, you need to know…camp is a must. It’s an experience unlike any other. It’s a week that will challenge you, stretch you, inspire you, motivate you and if you are like me and the thousands of others who have become camp lifers….it will change you forever…for the better. What makes camp so special? That’s a really hard question to answer. It’s hard because its so many things and so different to each person you ask. Don’t sit this out. Don’t pass this up. Don’t gloss this over as something not for your kid. You would be doing your child a complete disservice to not give camp a chance. Trust me. Below you will find all kinds of information regarding camp. There’s more to come as well. Stay tuned. Thanks for considering this incredibly special ministry.

CAMP INCENTIVE FUND: Summer Camp has been a large part of the DNA of our church for a very long time. It is an invaluable experience that we hope all of you will consider taking advantage of. Our church will be offering our camp incentive fund again this year. This fund is available for all church member families and will pay 1/2 the cost for anyone who wants to go to camp this summer. In order to take advantage of this fund, you MUST complete this form (COMING SOON). This DOES NOT officially register you for camp. This is only an internal form we use at our church to track who is going to camp from our church.

MY FIRST TIME AT CAMP: We need your help! We are looking for photos of students both past and present from their very first year at camp. I don’t care if you went to camp 40 years ago or just recently started. Dig out a photo from your very first summer at camp and we will showcase them on our new display in the Buoy. We are creating a permanent display in the Buoy to recognize our church’s long standing relationship and commitment to our camping ministry. For many of our young people camp was an incredibly formative part of their faith formation. I appreciate all of your help in creating this display. If you are interested in participating, please send your name, photo and year it was taken to nate@avonlakeucc.org.
