RAW Camp is committed to providing a safe place for our children and our community. We are acting within the orders of Governor DeWine and adding in our own stringent policies to monitor and assess the safety and viability of camp each day. In response to COVID-19 we have reduced the capacity of camps, will have hand washing stations throughout camp, perform temperature screenings at drop off, and will keep group sizes under 9 and separate throughout the day among other measures such as staggered drop off and pickup times, camper lunches, and activities. For more information feel free to reach out through our contact page.
Use the table to view the camps, dates, and rates. Below are detailed descriptions of each camp.
