What's summer camp?

At Akita, it's only the best week you'll have all summer! You can cover yourself in mud. Challenge yourself at the Adventure Complex. Ground yourself in quiet moments of reflection at Vesper Hill. Fill your belly with s'mores around a campfire — and fill your heart with love as a valued member of our unconditionally caring community.

The traditional Summer Camp at Akita is our most popular program. We invite you to find a session that fits your schedule and join us this summer in Logan, Ohio!
