Our children's Overnight Camp is our cornerstone program. Since 1924 children with disabilities have enjoyed a weeklong get away on the Portage Lakes. Today, the program is open to all children with disabilities and their siblings. At our children's Overnight Camps there are two counselors to every six campers. Other staff on site includes the directors, program coordinators, and nursing staff. The Akron Rotary Camp strives to meet the individual needs of each of the campers. Staff will work with families, teachers, and other support services to help provide successful experiences.
The goals of Overnight Camp are to increase camper’s independence and self-esteem, encourage campers to try new leisure activities and become more physically active, and develop social skills. These goals are accomplished through the natural dynamics of the overnight camp experience, intentional programming and staff leadership.
Each camper will be able to register for a maximum of three (3) non-consecutive overnight camp weeks.
