Camp Akita is a summer camp, group activity center, and cabin rental facility located 45 miles
southeast of Columbus in the rolling hills of Hocking County, Ohio. The facility includes 1,200
acres of land, 15 miles of marked hiking trails, a nature sanctuary, a basketball court, a ropes
challenge course, and a 7-acre lake for fishing, swimming, and canoeing.
Camp Akita's summer camp is a co-ed, residential camp experience for youth in 1st through 12th
grades. As a camper, you will experience crazy fun and excitement, thoughtful times of reflection
and conversation, and a loving community that values you unconditionally for who you are right now.
Our group programs are great for schools, companies, sports teams, scout groups, and more. These
year-round programs help your group learn, grow, and laugh together through team-building
activities, outdoor education, and our exciting high ropes and challenge course. We can house your
group overnight and provide meal service for a multi-day experience. Learn more
Rent one of our cabins in the woods and bring your family for a relaxing weekend getaway in a
beautiful setting. Larger groups can reserve several cabins together or stay in our main lodge. We
can even accomodate the ceremony, reception, and overnight lodging for your wedding. Learn more
