Summer Camp Sessions
Explorer Camp #1
All the fun in half the time! Explorer Camp is a half-week program designed for campers who are new to camp and/or might not want to stay for a whole week. Age limits for this camp are 7-12 so it is also a good chance for a younger camper to try camp. Campers will still do all the camp activities such as swimming, boating, crafts, hiking, fishing, creek walking, archery, and so much more!
Classic summer camp! Junior camp is a week-long resident camp for ages 7-12. It is focused on a variety and balance of activities, including swimming, boating, crafts, hiking, fishing, creek walking, archery, and more. Junior campers will be engaged during evening programmings such as campfires, vespers, and all-camp activities.
Senior camp is for ages 13-16 and is focused on a more social setting with an emphasis on advanced skills in camp programs and developing leadership skills. Senior campers have more individual choice in programs and participate in camp activities as well as specially designed senior camp activities. This is the perfect camp for a camper in-between Junior Camp and a Leader-In-Training
Leader-In-Training (LIT) Camps
LIT camp is for individuals 16-17 that love Camp Whitewood and are ready to take the next step in regards to responsibility, leadership, and becoming role models for younger campers.

This is the perfect program for 4-H counselors interested in further opportunities at Camp Whitewood or anyone interested in someday joining the Camp Whitewood staff.

There are a limited number of spots in the LIT program, so sign up now!
Level 1 Wilderness Camp:
Wilderness camp is a true outdoor camping experience. Campers are led by Wilderness Camp staff into the less explored parts of Whitewood and sleep in tents in a backcountry setting. Wilderness campers learn how to set up camp, outdoor cooking skills, wilderness skills, and outdoor camping ethics. Campers are provided with backpacks, tents, sleeping gear, cooking gear, and food. Please call or visit the website for more information about Wilderness Camp and check out the packing list and suggestions. Restrooms and showers will not be used till the last day, so campers will learn proper backcountry bathroom and hygiene techniques. Wilderness Camp is a half-week program. Space is limited and fills up fast, so register early!
Level 2 Wilderness Camp:
Level 2 Wilderness Camp is for all you outdoor buffs that just cannot get enough Wilderness Camp. Go further than ever before and challenge yourself. Campers will learn more advanced wilderness and survival skills as well as exploring parts of Camp Whitewood most people don’t even know exist! Along with exploring the lesser-known regions of Camp Whitewood, Wilderness Level 2 campers will have the opportunity to go explore the wild off camp! Wilderness 2 Adventurers will be taking a trip to paddle a local waterway such as the Cuyahoga River or one of the many lakes in the area. They will also have a chance to challenge themselves at a local high ropes course and bouldering course. It is highly recommended that a camper go through Wilderness Camp or be experienced in primitive camping before registering for Level 2 Wilderness Camp.
