About the Camp

In the 1960’s Bob and Jewell Evans donated land which became Camp Francis Asbury. For many years the camp was owned and maintained by the United Methodist Church. In 2017 the name of the camp was changed to Evans Christian Outfitters (ECHO) and is now owned, operated and maintained by the Friends of Camp Asbury, Inc (FOCA). FOCA operates the summer camps as listed in this brochure but also rents the camp out for groups to enjoy all year long. FOCA is a group of Christian persons who attend various churches in Southeast Ohio and desire to keep the Evans family vision of Christian camping in this region. 


Evans Christian Outfitters has dedicated Trustees who oversee the operation and the long term vision of the camp.
