What is CampUCAN?

CampUCAN is a one-week summer camp experience for young men age 9-15 from urban areas in Ohio. Exciting programs, compassionate leaders, and a retreat setting provide an unforgettable opportunity for campers to encounter the love of God, hear the gospel message, and form life-long relationships.

SCBO member churches invite unsaved and unchurched youth from inner city communities around Ohio each year. All CampUCAN campers attend free-of-charge thanks to generous gifts from donors.
