About Camp Cotubic
Christian Summer Camps & Retreats
Camp Cotubic is located in the beautiful rolling hills of Logan County near Bellefontaine, Ohio, about 50 miles northwest of Columbus. We offer Christian summer camps, summer camp rental for youth groups and organizations, fall retreat camp rental, and outdoor education programming for schools in both fall and spring. Since 1974, people from across the United States have called Camp Cotubic a “Home away from home.”
As a Christian camp, we encourage kids to learn and have fun while experiencing the message of the Gospel. The 150 acres that house Camp Cotubic have been designed to help us achieve our mission while maximizing the beauty of God’s creation. While here, it’s easy to re-discover the quite voice of God as He speaks through His creation, challenging speakers, contemporary music, and the community of friends developed at camp. Summers are spent developing wholesome friendships, creating exciting memories, trying new things, and encountering Jesus.
Our Message of Faith
The Triune God
These three are one: the Father in the Son, the Son in the Father, and the Holy Spirit equal in essence or being with both. This Triune God not only created the heavens and the earth and everything in them, but also sustains, governs, protects and supports it all.
Jesus Christ, The Son
We believe that Jesus Christ is both God and man. He became a man by the power of the Holy Spirit in the Virgin Mary and was born of her. He is the Savior and mediator of the whole human race, if they accept with full faith in Christ the grace offered in him.
We believe that Jesus suffered and died on the cross for us, was buried, rose from death on the third day, ascended into heaven, and now sits on the right hand of God interceding for us. He will come again at the last day to judge the living and the dead.
The Holy Spirit, Comforter and Guide
We believe that the Holy Spirit is equal in being with the Father and the Son. He comforts the faithful and guides them into all truth.
We believe in the holy Christian church, the communion of saints, the resurrection of the body, and eternal life.
The Holy Bible and Salvation
We believe that the Bible, Old and New Testaments, is the Word of God. It contains the only true way of salvation. Every true Christian is bound to acknowledge and receive it, with the influence of the Spirit of God, as the only rule and guide.
We believe that without faith in Jesus Christ, true repentance, forgiveness of sins, and following after Christ, no one can be a true Christian.
The Salvation Message
We also believe that what is contained in the Bible, the fall in Adam and redemption through Jesus Christ, shall be preached throughout the world.
The Christian Ordinances
We believe that the ordinances, baptism, and the remembrance of the sufferings and death of our Lord Jesus Christ are to be used and practiced by all Christian churches.
We also believe that all of God’s children in particular are to practice these ordinances, but that the manner in which they practice them ought always to be left to the judgment and understanding of the individual. Whether or not to practice foot washing is also to be left to the individual.
