Youth Camps

Youth Camps

If you went to summer camp as a child, there is a good chance it was in Carroll County.

There are 11 youth camps in the county – the largest concentration in Ohio. They offer everything from archery, boating, crafts, fishing to horseback riding, creative arts and Bible study.

During the summer, youth flock to Carroll County to enjoy the area’s lakes and recreation areas.

While their focus is on youth during the summer, many of the camps offer retreats and other activities throughout the year.
