Camp Cheerful Camper

In our camp programs, children ages 5 and older with and without disabilities participate in a variety of recreational activities that encourage confidence and independence, and create opportunities for lifelong friendships while having fun! Campers enjoy all the traditional camp activities including:  hiking, swimming, fishing, canoeing, arts and crafts, nature study activities, games, campfire activities, music and sports. At Camp Cheerful in Strongsville, we also offer year-round Therapeutic Horseback Riding sessions and a state-of-the-art, fully handicap-accessible High Ropes Challenge Course during camp sessions.
