Camp Buckeye 2017

APPLICATIONS NO LONGER ACCEPTED! Camp Buckeye is full! We can no longer accept any more applications.

We encourage children, ages 6-12, to come and enjoy a positive, rewarding and uplifting camp experience. Camp strives to enrich children physically, mentally and spiritually by creating a safe, caring atmosphere to learn how to strengthen their relationship with God, family and friends.

The United Youth Camp Buckeye will be conducted for the 6th consecutive year at Camp Luz in Orrville, Ohio. Each day begins with Christian Living classes; additional activities include archery, arts and crafts, bible skits, canoeing, court games, fishing, field games, swimming, Luz-ball, a campfire with kettle corn and sing-a-long. There is a large pond for fishing and canoeing and a beautiful swimming pool with dual tube slides.


Space is limited: It is likely that we will have more applicants than our sleeping quarters can accommodate. Although we make every effort to include as many campers as possible, we may not have room for everyone, so please apply as soon as possible.


Staff: We always encourage parents and teens to consider serving at Camp Buckeye, however serving at Camp Buckeye has become very popular, so it is likely that not all applicants will be accepted.


Application Deadline: If you want the discounted fee, be sure to have your application submitted no later than June 1, 2017! PLEASE send your payment in the mail as soon as possible after submitting your application. We must receive your payment for your application to be complete.
