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.
