Falcon Camp: Fun for Now, Skills for Life

March 27, 2024

Located only 80 miles west of Pittsburgh, Falcon Camp has been widely recognized throughout the Midwest as Ohio’s premier summer camp since 1959.

Falcon Camp offers a beautiful lakefront setting, a talented experienced staff, and a wide variety of activities.  “Fun for Now, Skills for Life” is not just a catchy logo phrase but truly defines what Falcon is about.

Designed for boys and girls ages 6 – 16 in 2,4,6 or 8-week sessions, campers choose their own schedule within a general framework. Daily activities are separate with planned coed events. Riding, sailing, swimming, riflery, crafts, tennis, drama, archery, and so many more activities are offered. Instruction from beginner to advanced is offered in each activity. Falcon has a strong reputation for making sure a camper’s first overnight experience is very positive.

Our non-competitive environment is inviting to campers who may be hesitant to try something they have never done before, while our awards system challenges our most experienced campers. The 1:4 staff/camper ratio allows individual instruction and attention. Most of all it’s great fun! Falcon also has a special one-week intro program for campers ages 6 -9.

This ‘Young Adventure’ program is specially designed for first-time young campers. Falcon Camp is ACA accredited with many references available with campers from Pittsburgh, all over the United States and the world.

Being so close to Pittsburgh allows families to visit beforehand, meet staff and feel “at home” prior to attending. Falcon is an outstanding opportunity for fun and learning.

A summer at Falcon is a special experience where good things happen by design. Visit our website,, call 800/837-CAMP or email for more information.
