Camp Carl?

Camp Carl is fully committed to partnering with families in the nurturing, development, and guidance of children and adolescents. We believe this week – and every week – matters in the life of a child. So, we plan to make this a time they’ll never forget!

This is achieved through our positive, energetic emphasis on a personal relationship with God through Christ Jesus, and the understanding that everyone is created in the image of God.

Safety Is a Priority


There are always at least three lifeguards on duty whenever a pool or lake is open. Every lifeguard is Lifeguard and CPR certified. In addition, all lifeguards are trained in oxygen administration and how to use an Automated External Defibrillator. Campers must pass a swim check upon arrival at camp to determine their strength as a swimmer. Non-swimmers wear a wristband to alert lifeguards on duty that they cannot swim well and must remain in shallow areas at all times.


We require every camper on a horse to wear a helmet. All of our wranglers are extensively trained in horse safety and our full-time Horse Barn Manager is responsible for overseeing everything from trail rides to horse and barn maintenance.


Boat drivers are trained in waterfront safety and will need to pass an Ohio Boating Safety Course to be a camp boat driver. All boat drivers are older than 21 yrs. old. Before teaching or pulling a camper they log 20 hours of training and driving time.


Whether it’s zip lines, climbing walls, or other high ropes elements, we want to ensure that each one of these activities are as safe as possible. An independent contractor inspects and certifies all our ropes courses each year to ensure that they are in excellent working condition. We do an extensive training with our summer staff and they all will be tested and approved to run any ropes elements.
