Ohio Dreams is proud to announce the addition of our Adventure Camp for the Summer of 2017.
Adventure Camp is based on everything we do in our Action Sports Camp, with addition of Outdoor Adventure and Education, and geared towards the new comer who may lack experience but makes up for it with the spirit for Adventure.
Adventure Camp at Ohio Dreams is the perfect way to enjoy traditional summer camp, with a twist.
Why choose one sport? Adventure Campers will be able to participate and learn about multiple sports and outdoor adventures.
We provide the equipment and the schedule so you can start from scratch and learn from the best.
Athletics, Creativity, Science, Knowledge and Social Skills are the backbone of our camp. We offer a wide variety of activities for campers that are full of energy and curiosity.
Campers (with the help of parents if needed) are given choices for each period that will create the summer camp schedule of their dreams.
