Camp opens in June and runs week long and weekend camps until August. We offer additional respite weekends in the summer and fall. Day camp is available any week camp is in session, including 2 designated day camp weeks. We also offer one week for older campers.
Each week's activities are creative and fun, and might include Olympic Week, Disney Week, or Christmas in July. Each week includes hiking, swimming, arts and crafts, and of course, campfire singing!
Financial Assistance Available
All our our campers are welcome to apply for a campership. Most of the cost of camp is covered by Medicaid waivers, but for the portion that isn't, or for those who are not yet eligible for waivers, we offer a generous campership program.
We offer a full-range of individualized meals, prepared in our on site, newly remodeled kitchen. We know that well-fed campers are happy campers, so we see that everyone's needs, be they simple or complex are met. Our nursing staff helps folks who need specialized medical feeding.
Over the past 50 years, Camp Courageous has provided fun and meaningful camp experiences for hundreds of children and adults from all over the Midwest. Our caring and compassionate staff helps create wonderful memories, including hiking our beautiful property, swimming in our zero entry pool, making crafts, and singing around the campfire. We strive to make each and every activity safe, while maximizing the fun!
We employ staff from all over the US and from around the world. Each Counselor is screened and then properly and extensively trained to work with our special needs campers. They have additional training to comply with Ohio Standards for those working with the developmentally disabled population. With a 2-1 counselor to camper ratio, and additional support staff and specially trained volunteers, our campers develop genuine friendships not only with staff, but also with other campers. We have on site and on-call nurses and full-time overnight staff to create a safe and pleasant experience. We are closely connected with our local first responder network.
A week or weekend at camp is special for any kid, and to have this option available for kids of all ages is super awesome. Day camp is available to anyone who isn't quite ready for sleep-away camp just yet (or those who want to watch their favorite evening TV shows and not miss the fun at camp!)
Many of our campers utilize their Medicaid waivers and we can make that happen seemlessly. We also have camperships for those who need them.
Camp Courageous, part of the Courageous Community Services of NW Ohio is proud to be a leader in this area. In fact, we are outstanding in our field, and in all the other places in camp!
