Falcon Camp has been widely recognized throughout the Midwest as Ohio's premier summer camp since 1959. Falcon has been selected as one the best camps in the USA by different independent sources and as the "coolest camp in Ohio". Falcon offers a beautiful lakefront setting, a talented experienced staff and an extensive variety of activities. "Fun for Now, Skills for Life" is not just a catchy logo but truly defines what you accomplish at Falcon. Designed for boys and girls ages 6 - 16 in 2, 4, 6 or 8 week sessions, campers choose their own schedule every day within a general framework. Daily activities are gender separate with planned coed events. Riding, sailing, riflery, crafts, tennis, drama, archery, mountain bikes and so many more activities to choose from! Instruction from beginner to advanced is offered in each activity. We have a strong reputation for making sure a camper's first overnight experience is very positive. Our non-competitive environment is inviting to campers who may be hesitant to try something they have never done before, while our awards system challenges our most experienced campers. The 1:4 staff/camper ratio allows individual instruction and attention. Most of all it's GREAT FUN! Falcon also has a special 'Young Adventure' one week intro program for campers ages 6 -10. This program for younger campers is specially designed with more structure and 'parental' oversight. Falcon is ACA accredited with references from campers all over Ohio, PA and WVA, throughout the United States and around the world. Falcon campers are safe, healthy and happy as they try new activities, make life long friends and grow in responsible ways. A summer at Falcon is a special experience where good things happen by design. (less)... Read more
