Safety is our first priority at Camp Akita. Our team is leaning on information and recommendations from health experts, the American Camp Association (ACA), the Association of Camp Nursing (ACN), the Ohio Department of Health, the Center for Disease Control (CDC), and other camps that held on-site sessions in 2020 with no confirmed cases of COVID-19.

Can't wait for Camp Akita? Don't wait! Here are ways to add camp to your life today.

Volunteer at Camp check-ins or returns: Help us safely check-in our campers in Columbus for the bus ride down to Camp Akita and/or with the camper & luggage returns. Volunteer opportunities are available both inside and outside, on varying days between June 1 - August 10.  Schedule is included on the sign-up.

Akita Store: Camp Akita t-shirts, coffee mugs, blankets, and more are available in our online store! Have items shipped to your door or pick up from First Community.

Cabin Rentals: Rent a cabin at Camp Akita for a weekend or mid-week stay. Cabins include access to hiking trails, cozy fireplaces, WiFi, and more.


Thank you for your patience, and (most of all) for being part of the Akita Family! We cherish our campers, staff, and families, and hope you are staying safe and well. We hope that our behind-the-scenes work now will allow us to return home to Camp Akita together.
