Summer Day Camps

Summer Day Camp is a vital part of our camping program and gives children an excellent opportunity to enjoy outdoor recreation and lifelong skills. Camper ages are 6-12 and come from Northeast Ohio. Day Camp runs Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Each session includes an optional overnight stay at camp.

Sessions of camp include a variety of exciting hands-on activities such as archery, canoeing, camp crafts, high and low-ropes course, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, climbing wall, outdoor skills, swimming, wildlife and environmental studies, theme days, campfires and S’mores!
