Camp Fitch Makes Kids Better, Forever
Camp Fitch's century-old, classic sleep-away summer camp provides boys and girls aged 6–16 with a holistically safe, values-driven community where they discover friendship and achievement. Kids feel like they belong here among our carefully vetted, highly committed, and caring staff who create transformative experiences on a gorgeous and well-maintained site on the shore of Lake Erie.
Staff You Can Trust
The most important asset of a great camp is the staff that care for your child. At Camp Fitch, we have a very high staff return rate. Most of our staff grew up through our progressive leadership development sequence and our key leadership have each been at Fitch for decades.
Since our minimum counselor age is 18 years old, most of our staff are college students: tomorrow’s teachers and child-care experts who are carefully selected with a proven track record of leadership and positive role-modeling. We require an intensive, on-site week long orientation and skill-building session for all of our staff who learn to listen to each child and create a nurturing environment.
While Camp Fitch offers an impressive array of activities at our Lake Erie waterfront, state-of-the-art equestrian center, climbing tower, swimming pool, inland lake, and visual arts center, we recognize that these activities are a means to an end. In particular, the Fitch experience is designed to forge strong friendships that last a lifetime and solidify kids’ growing sense that they can reach goals for which they have passion and apply persistence.
