Summer Camp in Cuyahoga Valley National Park


For twenty years, we’ve made it our mission to create unforgettable summer camp experiences for children in Cuyahoga Valley National Park (CVNP). Your child will make new friends, discover his or her creativity, and explore the natural world through the magic of summer camp at the Cuyahoga Valley Environmental Education Center. Our overnight and day camps for kids entering grades 1-10 focus on hands-on experiences: outdoor skills, hiking, camping, singing songs around the campfire, games, crafts, and more! Discover our Outdoor Adventure camps, Theater camps, and Junior Ranger day camps.
