Organization Profile

Akron Rotary Camp was founded in 1924 to meet the needs of children with physical disabilities, so kids with polio and cerebral palsy had a place to spend their summers. A place where disabilities and limitations did not matter. A place where they could participate in activities that helped builds their self-esteem and physical endurance. Since its inception, Rotary Camp has been the primary project of the Rotary Club of Akron.

Today, the mission of serving children and adults with special needs is still very much alive in all our programs staying true to providing the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors in a camp setting. Rotary Camp located on Rex Lake, has become a cherished and trusted resource in the Akron area community. Campers are given the opportunity to experience traditional camping activities, develop relationships, learn life skills and create memories that last a lifetime.

Thank you for your support so that we can continue to Create a world where there are only abilities!
