My daughter and son went to COH for many years. My daughter became a camp counselor while in H.S. and College. I was camp nurse for many of those years. Can't say enough about their leadership, commitment to bible teaching and FUN!!! I hope my grandkids can continue the tradition of attending COH!read more
I am with Hanover Area. Today we took all of our 4th grade students to COH for field day. Everyone had a blast! The camp is well organized and the staff is wonderful. Our teachers complimented that this was the best, least stressful, trip they have ever been on. Thank you for having us! We will definitely be back! �read more
Our then 7-year-old son spent several weeks as a day camper at Camp Orchard Hill in 2017. He had a blast. The place is well organized and well run. They run buses daily from Mountain Top and places in between. Highly recommended for those looking for an all-day camp at a relatively affordable rate.read more
My church have been going to COH every year for the past 10 years for the father and son retreat. We always have a blast and grow in the Lord also. It rained all this weekend and we still had a blast.read more

All my children plus nieces and nephews have attended day camp, resident camp and winter blast. My kids liked it so much as a kid that each one eventually decided to work there too!read more
Our men's group and I been to 3 men's retreats at that camp, and they never disappoint. They not only offer delicious food, wonderful staff services, comfortable lodges, and a wide variety of fun activities, but they also drew me closer and closer to God though their guest speakers. The men and I will definitely be coming back here time and again!read more
I thoroughly enjoyed the Women's Retreat at COH this past weekend. God blessed us with beautiful weather that allowed us to enjoy the beauty surrounding the camp.

Wow, where should I begin?! I attended COH as a camper from 1978-1984, and was a staff member in 1985, '86 and again in 1993. I attended countless winter/fall retreats there with my youth group, and even held a few retreats there myself during my brief but brilliant stint in youth ministry. Introduced COH to my family at a couple family retreats and my two sons attended summer camp several times, my youngest even went through the LITE program and was a staff member. I remember when the Lodge was a pavilion, when the beach was covered with gravel, and when we swam in Lake Mango. I remember horseback riding all the way to Lake Louise, trips to the Dallas laundromat in the Matador, spending nights out at "Vietnam", sleeping on the beach and getting a "Moon tan". I remember climbing the tallest tree by the lake, capture the flag, counselor hunts and kangaroo court. I remember singing, camp fires and testimonies. I met countless friends and mentors such as Dwight Hodne, Art Woods, Chet Hester and Greg Hackenberg to name just a few who had a major impact on my life. I remember when Derek and his sister Holly were little kids (as a camper I scarred about 9 lives out of Holly during a game of counselor hunt when I came bursting out of the bushes in full camouflage and a black ski mask). About half of the Bible verses I know by memory are compliments to Dwight Hodne's songs. I even had my first kiss at COH...we were both 8 and lip contact was about half-a-second, but it counts! There are so many memories, both good and bad...but all great...I can't possibly recount all of them and do justice to those who were instrumental in making my time at COH so special. But most of all...God used COH to build the foundation of my faith that still stands firm and has made me the man I am today. COH was not a mere pebble creating a ripple, but a giant Rock that God cast into my life whose waves transformed me into a new creation. The lives the Lord has touched through my service as a minister, teacher and Army/Navy chaplain all can be traced back to one summer night in July of 1978 in Cabin 10 at COH. BTW...Jim/Derek...my offer still stands if you like me to be a guest speaker of,the week. Keep up the Good Fight COH!read more
My first trip there I dreaded. But only a few short hours there, and the staff had me singing.out.loud.in.PUBLIC- something I never thought I'd do. They made Christ a priority- as the reason for all things good, and their camp was just along for that ride, doing the service of the Lord. It was a great introduction into the life of a Christian outside a church, which IMO is a huge lesson- since so many kids only know Christ on Sundays. I went every summer for four years after, the last two totalled 5 weeks. I made lifelong friends there, with whom I speak to even now. And I also got the chance to know friends who were local, in an environment "safe" enough (i.e., away from public school) to share openly and honestly, and to worship with together... giving us a kind of secret bond, trust, and friendship all the other days through school. I can't say enough about what COH did for me... but if I came into a ton of money tomorrow, they would be the first place I would look to donate to. In many real ways, COH steered me away from destruction and towards Christ. I OFTEN use a song I heard, written by the staff and based on scripture- humming and saying the words to myself... to get through troubled moments or times:"For I'm persuaded that neither death, nor life,Nor angels,Nor principalities,Nor powers;Nor things present,Nor things to come,Nor height,Nor depth,Nor any other creature-Shall be able to separate meFrom the love of God,Which is in Christ Jesus, our Lord:Though the devil hates me,He can never separate me fromThe wonderful love of God!"They sang this song over and over, starting slow then going faster until everyone gave up trying to keep up. This was circa 1982. Feels like it happened yesterday! I pray COH continues its positive changes into the future!read more
I love COH. In the 80's as a camper, than staff.... I grew up there... I'm sure it looks so much different now, but it has a huge spot in my heart.read more

Camp Orchard Hill is an amazing Christian camp that offers the opportunity for kids of all ages and adults to accept Christ and grow in their spiritual walk with the Lord. The camp offers many fun activities along with phenomenal speakers and bands to create the perfect environment for all those attending to have a memorable life changing weekend retreat or camp week. The staff is also extremely helpful, and counselors are also wonderful with the kids. If you are looking to send your kids to a summer camp or WinterBlast retreat, this is your camp! They also provide a fabulous women's retreat, men's retreat, mother/daughter retreat, father/son retreat, and family camp as well. Kudos to everyone at COH who make all these events possible!read more

A great place to get away and refocus your spiritual life. The location is great, the scenes are beautiful, the facilities are wonderful, the food is scrumptious, the fellowship is amazing, and the staff and band are outstanding.

The absolute best. Kaidence had so much fun this summer at COH. Definitely going back next year.
My 13 year old son just returned home from a week of resident camp(Surge 2). He LOVED it!! He said he met a lot of nice people and had lots of fun. But the thing I can tell that truly moved him were the "amazing sermons at chapel time and cabin talks". These were the BEST words I could've heard! Our world gets more evil and darker everyday. But having the light of Jesus in your heart can overcome it all! Thank you God and thank you COH. Mission accomplished!! My sons also attend day camp and love it, as well.read more
I had the best 2 years at COH as a camper. I actually connected with Christianity.

Highly recommend Camp OC for family camp. We typically go on Memorial weekend as a family and send the kids to summer camp or the winter blast. The kids LOVE it! I love the convenience of cabins and 3 meals a day prepared by someone else 😉 The worship is fun and family centered.read more
