Columbus Youth Camp is nestled amongst the Indiana hardwood forest just a short drive from Columbus, Indiana.
The natural environment is our classroom, passion, and tool for teaching. We promote the protection of natural places, beginning with ourselves. From our on-site waste water treatment system, recycling program, solar oven, down to the light bulbs - we make every effort to be an environmentally friendly camp.
While nature is our classroom, exploration is the driving force for all we do. Whether it is exploring one’s own inner fortitude on the zip line, developing interpersonal skills on the team challenge course, learning how to paddle on our lake, or developing a life-long passion for growth and learning during our summer camp, every participant will develop a desire to explore and grow.
We currently boast 137 acres of rolling landscape, only 15 of which are developed. Seven miles of trails link eleven cabins, mountain bike trail, two challenge courses, the lake, and outdoor theater, shelter house, science lab, and Reeves Conference Center.SOE Summer Camp Brochure
