Hosting camp at Otterbein University allows campers to experience a taste of life on a college campus in a safe, structured environment. Otterbein University is settled on top of the hills in Westerville, a small, eclectic Ohio town.  Campers will be served three great meals a day (all you can eat) and share a living area. Meals are prepared daily by an outstanding cook staff that focuses on nutritious meals.  Campers will be housed in the Otterbein Universuty dormitories, which host a majority of the students that attend the University during the academic year.  Each camper will have a bed, which may be a bunk bed or portable roll away bed (we do house campers on the same team in the closed-off common rooms also).
