Last month, the Akron Beacon Journal published a thorough list of summer camps in the great Akron, OH area. It was right about the time when we had 3 feet of snow on the ground. If you are like me, by now it’s been misplaced. This will be the first year that I sign Elijah up for a summer program. I feel that it will benefit him to have a consistent time with kids his age each week during the summer, in preparation for kindergarten next year. I’ll be looking for a soccer program and a science or nature type program through the Metro Parks, most likely. I may sign Elizabeth up for a dance class, she loved the Fancy Nancy ballet so much and said she wanted to be on that stage when she is bigger!
I’d love to copy and past the exhaustive list from Ohio.com (Akron Beacon Journal website) but Google would kill my ratings! lol It is easy enough for you to check it out on Ohio.com here. I was impressed by the number of camps available. They have it broken down by counties including Summit, Stark, Medina, and Portage. Also, they have special categories for Special Needs and Sports Camps broken down by type.
If you would like to share an incredible camp your kids go to, comment below.
One thought on “Greater Akron, OH Summer Camps”
I used to go to soccer camp every summer and will definitely be signing my girls up for camps when they get old enough. They are some of my best childhood memories and I really want them to have those experiences too!
