Camp Buckeye is Celebrating 30 Years of Camping Ministry!

In 1984, LeRoy Mullet, Ken Stoltzfus and Nate Miller shared a dream that a former Boy Scout Camp could be a place for children and families to pull away from the fast pace of everyday life and enjoy simple things like conversations around a camp fire and hikes in the beauty of God’s creation and best of all experience God’s love. That dream is still alive and well. We continue to host families, youth groups and summer camp for children. Camp Buckeye has seen many changes over the years, it’s a fact of life that change comes; yet Camp still remains a place of safety and peace.

We would love for you to experience Camp Buckeye. Contact us today to schedule a visit.
