2020 Summer Camp Offerings


“My son, who is almost 11, dreads it when I sign him up for any kind of summer camp, but he really enjoyed this one,” wrote one parent. Wrote another, “My son loved camp! He was so excited to come home and tell me about all his wonderful experiences. The staff was knowledgeable and very friendly!”

We at Geauga Park District also can’t wait for another great summer of Adventure Day Camps, featuring activities at a variety of 25 county parks.

This summer, campers will get the opportunity to kayak on Lake Kelso at Burton Wetlands Nature Preserve – a park location that can only be explored with a park naturalist. “We can’t wait for our campers to discover this unique habitat,” Naturalist Karie Wheaton said. “I know they are going to love it.”

Kayaking returns among many other popular summer camp adventures: hiking, geocaching, biking, building and launching model rockets, exploring and fishing!

Geauga Park District’s 8th annual camps will be offered in week-long form for youth entering grades 5-7 the weeks of June 8, July 6, July 13, July 27 and August 3. The week of June 15, a Junior Naturalist Camp for this age group will also direct the focus to streams, lakes and forests for discovery of insects, fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, astronomy and more.

For teens entering grades 8-10, week-long experiences will be the weeks of June 15 and July 20. Both of these weeks will include the popular high ropes course fun at Claridon Woodlands as well as archery! Plus, single-day “X-Treme Adventures” will be held July 9 (X-treme Kayak Adventures), July 16 (X-treme High Ropes Adventure) and July 30 (X-treme Biking Adventures).

A week of camp costs $150 for Geauga residents or $175 for out-of-county residents. With additional questions, please just give us a call at 440-286-9516.
