Falcon Camp

Located only 80 miles west of Pittsburgh, Falcon Camp is widely recognized as Ohio’s premier summer camp. Falcon offers a beautiful lakefront setting, an extensive range of activities and a talented, experienced staff. The program includes horseback riding, sailing, swimming, mountain biking, canoeing, paddle boards, fishing, drama, video, photography, crafts, team sports, riflery, archery, nature, overnights, kayaking, tennis and much more. Boys and girls ages 6-16 are separate with planned coed events, and campers choose their own activities within a general framework.

Falcon has a strong reputation for making sure a camper’s first overnight experience is very positive. The non-competitive environment is inviting to new campers while our awards system challenges more experienced campers. The 1:4 staff/camper ratio allows individual instruction and attention. Most of all it’s great fun! ACA accredited since 1959 with many references available. Falcon is an outstanding opportunity for fun and learning where good things happen by design.
