How you help We would not be able to provide six weeks of camp to children each summer without the help of approximately 150 volunteer staff members.
About us Mt. Hope Bible Camp in Otway, Ohio, has been bringing young people to its grounds to hear about Jesus since 1973. The camp began under the leadership of Dale and Belva Beery, who then served with our mission, on land donated by the man who introduced current camp director Brett Wilson to Jesus. While the campgrounds and programs have expanded since its beginning, Mt. Hope stands firm that “The Bible is still our middle name.”
