Who are we?
Daily Bible Activities
The main focus of camp N.O.A.H. is spending time rightly dividing the word of God.
One of the greatest opportunities at camp is spending time with like-
Each afternoon campers are divided into an age appropriate Bible class where a male staff member leads the discussion focused around that mornings lecture.
Each morning and evening, cabins have a 30 minute devotional. Cabin councilors lead the devotions in the younger cabins, and campers lead the devotions in the older cabins.
Each morning, a male staff member gives a lecture focused on the topic chosen for the year. In the evening, one of the older male campers gives a devotional for the whole camp.
The staff members at camp N.O.A.H. are members of the church from all over the nation who volunteer their time to make the week possible. Each staff member is there to be a light to the campers around them and help provide a Godly atmosphere whether it be in the cabin or during daily activities. Most of the staff have children who are currently at camp or have attended in years past.
Each day campers have opportunity to compete team against team in volleyball and ultimate Frisbee. Campers are split into juniors and seniors to insure everyone has a good time. Water breaks happen throughout the duration of athletic to insure everyone stays hydrated.
End the day with a homemade meal like poppyseed chicken, tacos, fresh salad bar and pulled pork sandwiches.
Start the morning off right with home made meals like biscuits and gravy, egg, bacon and fresh fruit.
After athletics come enjoy a lunch like hamburgers, hot dogs, homemade pizza and a salad bar.
Bed time snacks are provided each evening to make sure no one goes to bed hungry.
Cabins housing is based on gender and age. There is not much time spent in the cabin other than evening hour activities and sleeping. Whether it be cards, flashlight tag or learning about God’s word, the cabin is a place to have fun and get to know other kids your age. To make sure everyone gets enough sleep during the week, lights out is at 10:00 p.m. Lights out means quiet talking and story telling, but not for too long!

You don’t want to miss “staff infection” playing some of the traditional camp N.O.A.H. songs like goober peas, dead skunk and itchy twitchy spot.
Everyone's favorite part of camp...not! Each morning when campers wake up they must tidy up around the cabin. The more you clean the better score you get on morning cabin inspections and the sooner you get to eat at dinner. Cabin inspections were created to insure a pleasant environment in the cabins and to keep out unwelcome critters.
Things to Bring to Camp
Use a fine point sharpie to label items -
For littles, I put their daily outfits in a gallon size ziploc bag (lay shorts on floor, place shirt, socks & undies on top, then roll & put in bag).
Make sure their name is written in the front of their Bible & on their water bottle
Free time was created so that the campers could have a break between activities.
Free time is a great time to go to the candy store or call home. Free time does not
mean a free-
A Watchful Eye
You can be certain that your children are in good hands. Staff members are there to supervise campers every step of the way. Campers are never allowed to go off on their own; the buddy system is strictly enforced.
During camp registration parents can choose to put money in their kids’ account so that they can get candy throughout the week. But, don’t be worried, the candy store ladies are staff members who make sure to limit the kids’ spending. A piece or two a day insures that their money lasts all week.
Campers have opportunity to pick drama for one of their activity classes. Throughout the week the campers will work on a drama production that they perform on Friday night for the camp and guests.
Each day campers attend their selected activity classes. The classes are run by staff members and last 50 minutes each. This is a fun time to make a keepsake or compete against other campers to see who is the best shot.
When you arrive at camp you will be greeted in the parking lot by some of the staff members. After loading your luggage into the luggage carts you will be pointed towards the directors cabin. The directors cabin is the place you will turn in your signed parent/camper agreement form, pay for camp (if you haven’t already done so), put money into the camper’s candy store account, and receive your camp lecture book. On the porch of the directors cabin is where you pick up your team bandana. The nurses cabin is where you turn in your notarized medical form and any medications that the camper will need during the week. Once these things are completed the camper can then go to their cabin to meet their cabin councilors and get their bunk set up.
Each day at lunch, mail is handed out to campers, so parents are encouraged to send their child mail throughout the week. Just make sure to put the camp’s address (5600 W. Sylvania Ave. Toledo, OH 43623) and the camper’s name. Sending mail at the beginning of the week is best to ensure it arrives during camp week.
At the end of the week, cabin councilors give each camper in their cabin a cabin award. Cabin awards are based on the characteristics a camper has displayed throughout the week. Receiving a cabin award and hearing why you got it is always a special part of the week.
On Friday night, campers who are fourteen and older go to the annual pizza party. After a short devotion, campers hang out and play games like pictionary. The pizza party is a special way to end the week together and is always a blast. Individual cabin parties are also put on by cabin councilors for those who are not old enough to attend the pizza party.

Things Not Allowed At Camp
To ensure that everyone has a fun time at camp we make it a point not to allow certain things during everyday activities.
Do not bring your own equipment for activity class. BB guns, slingshots and archery equipment will be provided by the instructors.
Although cell phones are allowed at camp, they can only be used during free time for the purpose of calling home. For young campers who need to call home, a phone will be made available.
No electronic Bibles of any kind are allowed at camp. All campers need to bring a hard copy to use during devotionals and lectures.
All medication must be given to the camp nurse. Campers are not allowed to carry their own medications at any time. Arrangements will be made with the nurse for campers who must carry an inhaler or EpiPen.
