St. John’s Church Summer Camp is 3 days and 2 nights at Camp Palmer near Bryan, Ohio. The nights and days are packed with activities for all ages, including zipline, canoeing, crafts, swimming, team building, scavenger hunts, night walks, campfires, and so much more. Most importantly, it is a way for our young parishioners to spend time together in faith and fellowship with Mass and incorporation of faith during the camp. Kids will get to sleep in cabins with kids of the same age. This is a great opportunity for high school students to volunteer as camp counselors.
