Camp Fun for Everyone

The Akron Rotary Camp for Children with Special Needs, in cooperation with the Akron Area YMCA offers children and adults with disabilities, the opportunity to experience all the friendship, fun and excitement of camp. Akron Rotary Camp is American Camp Association (ACA) accredited and provides a nurturing and enriching atmosphere where campers develop relationships, skills and memories that will last a lifetime.

The Akron Rotary Camp was founded to meet the needs of children with disabilities and their families. While at camp, children are able to participate in activities that help build self-esteem and physical endurance.

Today the mission of serving children and families is still very much alive in all of our programs. Akron Rotary Camp is more than the summer experience or respite weekend, it’s about doing what is right for campers and their families and providing everyone with a true camp experience.
