Akron Rotary Camp was founded in 1924 to meet the needs of children with physical disabilities, so kids with polio and cerebral palsy had a place to spend their summers. A place where disabilities and limitations did not matter. A place where they could participate in activities that helped builds their self-esteem and physical endurance. Since its inception, Rotary Camp has been the primary project of the Rotary Club of Akron. Rotarians are active in volunteering and fundraising for Rotary Camp and many other local and international service projects.
Today, the mission of serving children and families is still very much alive in all our programs staying true to providing the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors in a camp setting. Rotary Camp located on Rex Lake, has become a cherished and trusted resource in the Akron area community. Campers are given the opportunity to experience traditional camping activities, develop relationships, learn life skills and create memories that last a lifetime. Akron Rotary Camp provide support to disadvantaged families in need of financial assistance to help cover the cost of sending their child to camp who could not otherwise afford to attend. Annually, we continue to grow and with growth come more financial need. In 2018, we provided $241,000 in financial assistance.
