Camp Gideon is a 188 acre tract of land owned by Evangelical Friends Church-Eastern Region and has grown to become a first-rate Christian camp, conference, and retreat center. Found outside of Carrollton, Camp Gideon is nestled deep in the rolling hills, thick forests, flowing streams and striking sunsets of the Ohio Valley. Camp Gideon was founded to glorify Jesus Christ and provide opportunities for people to restore meaningful and purpose-filled relationships with God, self, others, and creation. Five buildings and a heated pool have been built for housing, dining, conference, and recreational activities. Our vision is to provide a fun, exciting, and biblical environment where each camper is valued and loved and will be challenged to seek a growing, lifelong relationship with Jesus Christ.
