SMILE Summer Camp was developed for children with disabilities out of a need to provide them with a fun, interactive way to further develop their social skills and to help these kids have a better summer - and a better life.
Located on 52 acres in the Cleveland Metroparks Mill Stream Run Reservation in Strongsville, Camp Cheerful is Ohio's first barrier-free camp. Camp Cheerful offers residential co-ed sessions in a beautiful outdoor environment for children and adults ages 7 and older with and without special needs.
Camp Courageous serves children and adults with all types of special needs and developmental disabilities. We offer summer day and residential camp, and fall respite weekends.
The summer camp program at Camp Paradise has provided a safe and secure environment for children and adults with disabilities since 1967. Campers get the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities and build friendships that last a lifetime!
