Notes:  Widely recognized throughout the Midwest as Ohio’s premier private camp, Falcon Camp offers a beautiful lakefront setting, a talented experienced staff and a wide variety of activities. Falcon accepts boys and girls ages 6-16 and is celebrating its 54th summer. Program includes horseback riding, sailing, swimming, canoeing, fishing, rocketry, drama, crafts, team sports, riflery, archery, nature, overnights, special events and field trips, tennis, and much more. Campers choose their own activities within a general framework each day.

Falcon is a traditional, rustic camp where major ingredients to success are taking good care of our campers and creating an atmosphere of encouragement and understanding. Our 4 to 1 camper/staff ratios allow us to give each Falcon camper individual attention necessary to assure a summer of fun and learning. “Fun for Now, Skills for Life” is not just our motto, the phrase truly embodies what Falcon means, how we teach, and our goals for each camper.

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. We instruct from beginner to advanced in each activity we offer.

With an average 70% camper return rate, Falcon has a nice mixture of “old hands” and new faces. Over the past several years Falcon has been host to campers from 18 different states and eight countries. The majority of campers attend from the Cleveland, Columbus, and Pittsburgh areas, all within easy driving distance.

Falcon is an outstanding opportunity for fun and learning. A summer at Falcon is a special experience where good things happen by design.

notes:

Falcon Young Adventure Camp is a unique and exciting introduction to overnight camping for boys and girls ages 6 -9. These one-week programs are designed with care to guide the campers in being successful with their first great “Young Adventure” away from home. Program includes horseback riding, swimming, canoeing, archery, air rifles, crafts, sports, rocketry, fishing, tennis and much more. Young Adventure Camp takes place within Falcon Camp’s traditional camping program and they have the opportunity to observe and occasionally join the older campers. A 1:2 staff/camper ratio gives us the ability to keep a close eye on each camper with a staff member always available with a helping hand. This will provide a very personal camp experience for young first time campers.  In the living units, this also allows for more attention to “parental concerns” such as eating right, brushing your teeth and the classic standard: I know it’s your favorite shirt but you still can’t wear it every day!  The Young Adventurers travel as a group with a counselor to all activity areas.  At each activity they will learn the basic skills needed to enjoy themselves safely.
