Grow at Camp Widewater
Fields, woods and wetlands provide plenty of wildlife to explore. Breath-taking sunrises and sunsets inspire incredible worship and set the stage for an overnight "under the stars."


Camp Widewater

Camp Widewater is nestled in the arms of the Maumee River and the fertile farmlands of Northwest Ohio. Experience 106 acres of gentle hills, new grasslands, old forests, and miles of beautiful, winding, walking/running trails offering views of God's creation that inspire a sense of peace, renewal, and "being home." Come out to camp and see for yourself how God's love can be felt in the great outdoors.

Harmony Lodge is the hub of Camp Widewater where groups of all ages and abilities gather for fellowship, worship and fun! Carpeted and air-conditioned, Harmony Lodge provides an all-accessible environment.

Excitement is part of the Camp Widewater summer camp experience as well: whether discovering your first crawdad, katydid, or humming bird, jumping off the inflatable Saturn into the pond, creating a tidal wave at the pool, or shooting your first arrow, discovery is inescapable here. You  will sense Jesus more clearly, grow in your spirit, and leave more confident of your God-given-gifts than ever before.
