Welcome to Camp Buckeye!

Camp Buckeye retreat center is an inter-denominational non-profit camp near Beach City, Ohio.  Camp Buckeye offers 92 beautiful wooded acres complete with hiking trails, pond, swimming pool, chapel, playground, winterized lodge and cabins, and picnic pavilions. 


In 1984, a group of people created a non-profit organization called Grass Roots Ministries, Inc., and purchased Camp Buckeye.  

  • We provide Christian summer camps for children.
  • We rent out our facilities for retreats, family reunions, church camps, and other special events.
  • We rent Serenity Cabin, an adults-only cabin for your quiet retreat.  (Serenity is also available for full time pastors on a donation basis.)
  • We have trails for hiking, a sand volleyball court, a mini-golf course, large playing field, junior Olympic size swimming pool, and pond for fishing.
  • We offer Nature Discovery sessions for local students to do hands-on learning about the natural world.

Whether you need a place for a family reunion, winter retreat, summer camp, youth retreat or just want a leisurely walk in the woods, consider having your activity here.
