Day Camp


General Info

The Rec Council Day Camp is available for children entering kindergarten through 8th grade and is located adjacent to the West Geauga Middle School. The campground is fifteen wooded acres with a covered pavilion, heated swimming pool, volleyball court, soccer field, basketball courts, an arts and crafts pavilion, and playgrounds. Daily activities include arts and crafts, sports, hiking, swimming under supervision of licensed lifeguards, special guests, and entertainment. Middle School campers also enjoy weekly field trips. The WGRC Day Camp is registered with the Ohio Department of Human Services as required by the Ohio Revised Code. We maintain a 6-10:1 ratio of children to counselors. If you have questions as to whether or not your child is ready to attend camp, please consult our Camper’s Handbook or email the camp director with any questions.


Art: Projects like tie dye, sand art, clay sculptures, and so much more. We have science days where we make great messy concoctions. We also have fun food days, where we cook delicious treats to eat and enjoy.

Sports: The sports program is designed for fun, not just for those that are athletic. Games include, volleyball, kickball, soccer, capture the flag, knockout, basketball and more. Our younger campers enjoy tag, hide and seek, playing with the parachute, duck duck goose (which on a hot day becomes drip drip drop).

Woods time: During woods time the kids can build forts, play hide and seek, capture the flag, or just let their imaginations run wild.

Drama Club: Campers get the chance to perform on-stage with coaching from the drama instructor.

Middle School Camp: Every Thursday, our 6, 7, and 8th graders are off on a field trip. Schedule is available on the calendar. Field trips require a permission slip.
