Children’s programs include sessions for 6 to 9 years old, 10 to 12 year old and teenagers 13 to 18.

Special guests and programs have included adventure activities, the Rock ’n Roll Hall of Fame, bands, orchestras, artists, and poets.

Campers have field-trip options to horse-riding stables, fishing, nature centers and other area attractions. Children at Highbrook participate in a structured, busy activity day. There is 24-hour supervision and attention from trained staff to offer first-time and returning campers alike a memorable camp experience.

See our webpage and scroll down to see our video or like our facebook page to see more.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: About the Highbrook Camp Program:

Our philosophy is simple: All people have abilities and our mission is to enable children and adults to realize their full potential through the recreation activities at Highbrook.

Safety is paramount to this mission. Our leader screening includes a criminal background check through the Ohio Bureau of Criminal investigation. All staff participates in a week-long orientation with sessions about sighted guide techniques, accessibility for people who are blind and visually impaired, and CPR and First Aid certification. Emergency drill training and procedures include weather, fire, injury, and lost camper. Children are always supervised by counselor teams, and attendance is taken several times daily. We have a resident Registered Nurse to dispense medication and carry out physician-ordered treatments for conditions such as asthma, diabetes, and glaucoma, to address possible emergencies, and to educate about wellness. Geauga County Hospital is literally within walking distance. Each year we communicate with the sheriff, fire, and police departments in the area to announce our summer arrival. We are grateful for their service and assistance in maintaining a very safe environment at Highbrook Lodge.

We ask to be partners with parents in our efforts to provide a safe camp experience for their children. Our application provides ample space to provide information related to a child’s special needs including vision, behavior, health, and diet. Please be as thorough and complete with information as possible. No tidbit is too trivial when a child becomes homesick, displays anxiety or anger, or has difficulty ‘fitting’ in. In the event of injury or incidents we call home to ask your advice and inform you of any unusual circumstances. When you arrive to pick up your child at the end of their camp session our goal is that you will not have any surprises about their care.

Our program for children is structured and progressive. Our day begins at 7:00 A.M. and progresses through meals, 3- 6 activity periods depending on age group, evening program, and cabin time. Our campers are kept busy and active throughout the day and usually are ready for bed at night. Our activities and procedures are based on traditional camp experiences to instill confidence and build self-esteem, enable peer support and getting along with others in a diverse world, and trying new things and mastering old skills. Campers are challenged to be as independent as possible, make decisions about activities, make choices in their day, help others, and be active.

Every effort is taken to help a child have a successful camp experience, but we will not force a child to endure a full session if they are overwhelmed by homesickness or other anxiety.

From time to time children and teens test the limits of authority and disciplinary actions need to be imposed. Highbrook Lodge staff will first discuss and correct inappropriate behavior. If behavior is not corrected (and it most often is) and depending on the situation, a child may receive a brief time-out from an activity (never sent to their cabin or away from the group), a loss of privilege such as the camp store, or a proactive assignment such as providing extra help during cabin clean-up (but never to clean the cabin alone, for example). Corporal punishment, cabin hazing, initiations and the like are forbidden at Highbrook Lodge and should be reported immediately to the Camp Director if reported by a camper to their parents. We ask parents to discuss the golden rule with children prior to coming to camp and reinforce their need to listen and obey, get along with others, ask permission from their counselors, mind their manners, and respect others’ person and property.

Campers will be sent home for threatening physical or verbal behavior toward others, inappropriate or sexual advances, bringing alcohol, illicit drugs, weapons, or offensive materials to camp, refusing to participate or follow directions, stealing, or destruction of property.

Registration for Highbrook Lodge is required. Applications are requested no later than June 1st. As sessions tend to fill rapidly, applications are accepted on a first-come first serve basis.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: Financial aid application is available in camp registration packet.

FAMILY CAMP SESSION(S): Bright Future for families of children 0-6 who have a diagnosed vision impairment, and their siblings (all ages).

TYPE OF CAMP: Day Camp. Mon - Wed 1-4 PM

CAMPER GENDER(S): All Girl Campers.

BRIEF CAMP DESCRIPTION: Explore the practice of yoga at this 3-day camp. Discover how to be in-tune with yourself as you learn new poses, take challenges and build leadership. Learn how to calm your mind, balance your body and steady the breath to utilize on and off your mat.

Team Sports, and more. Yoga Mat, Water & Comfortable Clothes Required.

CAMP LOCATION: 15 mins from Dublin and Powell. Close to 315 and a skip away form Sawmill Rd.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Di-losophy - Are you intrigued? Di-losophy is simply my take on how I got here, my yoga thoughts and the amazing benefits on the body and mind for YOU. Hi! I am Diane Six and love teaching my clients how to "pause".

Once upon a time I loved moving my body and staying flexible as a kid - in dance, gymnastics, and cheerleading. As time went on and those activites dwindles, I searched for a fun way to continue being limber as my thirty-something years neared. Working out in the gym didn't really stick with me like I wanted. Neither did any running, cycling or swimming at that time.

One day I decided to try a community yoga class. I had no true idea what to expect, but I purchased a yoga mat, bought a cute outfit and headed with my water bottle to the recreation center in Dublin, OH. I had no idea how this would change my life -- forever.

Long story short - I feel in love with yoga for all the endless wellness benefits. I was walking taller (more that my normal 5' 3" girl height who wears heels everyday). I just felt more align and stronger in my body. I ran quicker up the steps with a bounce. My mind felt sharper, clearer and overall stress relief. Plus I had fun! Wha just happened?

After 15 years of practicing yoga, I wanted to share how to achieve those balanced results with anyone ages 11 - 111. I launched this Yoga Works! in 2013 as a studio-less yoga coach.
I come to you (home, office, school - you name it). Just one of the many perks of this flexi-local yoga teaching.

When we work 1:1, you will discover yoga is more than just the asana (poses) it's about YOU being in that moment on your mat [TWEET it] - "the journey", listening to your body - "intuition", and giving you the physical and mental nurishment YOU need to survive.

FAMILY CAMP SESSION(S): Day 1 - Basics of yoga poses and how the breath can help your mind and body be calm. Yogis will learn warm-up techniques, standing poses, balancing, seated poses and cool down techniques. Break out groups into partner pose work and journaling of thoughts to end the day.

Day 2 - Building of advanced yoga poses and meditation techniques on positive thinking. Break out groups to create a yoga sequence for instructor to teach, and capping it off with journaling of thoughts to end the day.

Day 3 - Yogis will feel knowledgable and confident to create a yoga class and teach in groups created on Day 2. Camp will end with personal journaling that the girls can keep and reject back on what was learned.

YEAR-ROUND PROGRAMS: Year round activities include Yoga Club in the Dublin Schools through the Dublin Recreation Community activities.

Complete info on the camp can be found at This Website Link. Camp fee is $150, and there is an early bird savings of $25 if you register before May 15, 2016.

CAMP LOCATION: We are located 46.4 miles southeast of Columbus, OH on over 100 prime acres in the Hocking Hills region surrounded on three sides by the Clear Creek Metro Park.

Our camp hosts deciduous and evergreen forests, meadows, a lake, streams, and one of the clearest creeks in the state with over 40 different species of fish inhabiting its waters. Within our forests are some stunning geological formations.

Camp is an explorer’s paradise! There are cliffs, caverns, creeks, nooks and crannies to investigate. There is a lake for fishing and a large field for activities.

CAMP FACILITIES: Our camp facilities are rustic. Camper cabins do not have electricity and plumbing. There are bathroom and shower facilities within a short walking distance. Most overlook the lake. We have a recreation/dining hall, craft room, garden, lake for canoeing/kayaking and fishing, pool for swimming, and garden.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Camp Wyandot, Inc. was founded as a Camp Fire Council in 1913. In 1928, the council became an Ohio nonprofit corporation and purchased Camp Wyandot in the Hocking Hills. As of April 31, 2013, Camp Wyandot, Inc. became an independent organization and is no longer affiliated with Camp Fire.

Today, Camp Wyandot serves boys and girls with summer day and overnight camps and our Wyandot Explorers Club program.
Camp Wyandot provides an inclusive nurturing environment for youth to have fun, make friends, serve others, and explore the great outdoors.

Young people are interdependent with the natural world, yet know relatively little about it through direct experience. Through our overnight and day camp programs, we encourage development of natural senses and provide an intimate connection with nature while youth learn leadership, cooperation with others, and community responsibility while building self-awareness and forming friendships.

Camp Wyandot Overnight and Day Camps are offered during the summer for youths of all ages and include activities such as outdoor skills, camp outs, creeking, hiking, crafts, swimming/swimming lessons, kayaking/canoeing, archery, and special themed programs. We offer leadership programs at both our overnight and day camps. Currently, our day camp program is held at Highbanks Metro Park. We have American Camp Association (ACA) Accreditation which means that Camp Wyandot has undergone a thorough (up to 300 standards) review of its operation — from staff qualifications and training to emergency management.

Camp Wyandot’s overall goal is to provide a quality experience that builds competencies and creates positive life-long memories in a safe and supportive environment.

In an inclusive, engaging, and challenging environment, youth will:

-Increase their social and cultural competencies and feel a sense of belonging
-Develop leadership, teamwork, and cooperation skills
-Increase self-confidence, independence and empowerment
-Plan, make choices, reflect and learn from their decisions
-Build a life-long appreciation and respect for the outdoor environment
-Develop a sense of respect, responsibility and contribution to their community
-Be involved in rich group experiences that are inherently interesting and fun
-Be recognized for their accomplishments

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: A CIT (counselor in training) is a camper enrolled in a specialized leadership program which is designed to build up behavior management, risk management/safety awareness, communication, decision making, team building, and interdependency within a community.

The program aims to utilize this combination of skills to develop effective future leaders. A CIT should gain not only greater confidence and sense of accomplishment, but also a variety of skills and knowledge that will help them develop as competent leaders in all walks of life, not just a camp setting.
