Akron Rotary Camp offers several camping programs. The children's overnight camp are geared towards children with disabilities age 6-17. This is the cornerstone program, which has been offered since 1924. Campers 18 and older can participate in Adult Camp. Day camp is offered to campers ages 6-21. Campers enjoy traditional camp activities, while spending each night at home.
Today, our campers represent a variety of disabilities. Many campers have developmental disabilities such as autism spectrum disorders, developmental delays, and Down syndrome. Other campers have physical disabilities including spina bifida, cerebral palsy, and blindness. There are also many campers with learning disabilities, mental health disorders, and multiple diagnoses. A camper just has to have a disability to qualify for any one of the Akron Rotary Camp's programs.
Respite Programs are fun-filled days and weekends held throughout the year at Rotary Camp. These days and weekends are great opportunities for campers to see their old friends, while making new ones. Check out the 2021-2022 Respite Programs below.
