First Community Church Member Registration is now Open!
The traditional Summer Camp program at Akita is our most popular program. We invite you to cover yourself in mud, challenge yourself at the Adventure Complex, get to know yourself in moments of reflection at Vesper Hill, share s'mores around the campfire, and find yourself as a valued member of an unconditionally loving community.

Check-in and return for all summer camp sessions is at First Community Church, North Campus, near Hilliard, Ohio (3777 Dublin Rd, 43221). Check-in is on the first day of each camp session; return is on the last day.

Late arrivals and early departures from camp are discouraged because they disrupt the camp community.
Every summer Camp Akita staff members complete a comprehensive training program before we serve our campers. This year our staff training runs from May 30th to June 5th. During this time we cover a variety of topics including: mission and vision, message and theology, organizational and employment specifics, working with campers, site and security policies, and daily procedures.
Curious about what we are teaching our staff? If you would like to see the staff handbook section on working with campers, you can download it here.
