Serving the Recreational Needs of Our Community Since 1948



The Rec Council Day Camp is available for children entering kindergarten through 8th grade and is located adjacent to the West Geauga Middle School. WGRC does not have a residency requirement to attend camp. The campground is 15 wooded acres with a covered pavilion, heated swimming pool, volleyball court, soccer field, basketball courts, gaga ball courts, an arts and crafts pavilion, and playgrounds.

Daily activities include arts and crafts, sports, hiking, swimming under supervision of licensed lifeguards, special guests, and entertainment. Middle School campers also enjoy weekly field trips.

The WGRC Day Camp is registered with the Ohio Department of Human Services as required by the Ohio Revised Code. We maintain a 6-10:1 ratio of children to counselors. If you have questions as to whether or not your child is ready to attend camp, please consult our Camper’s Handbook or email with any questions.


Registration for WGRC Summer Day Camp is now closed (but you can still register for before or after care)

If you need to change or add camp registration days, you can e-mail us at No guarantees, but we'll do our best to accommodate!!

2024 DATES

June 3 – August 9, 2024

Camp is open for 10 weeks during the summer starting June and ending August. Registration is available for full weeks or on a per day basis. Please note, camp will be closed Thursday, July 4 for Independence Day.






Discounts apply to day camp only. Participation in extended care and Learn to Swim are not eligible for discounts. Refer to the Camper Handbook for complete discount details.

Multi-Child Discount

First child will pay advertised price, but there is a 10% discount for each additional child registered.

The multi-child discount is automatically applied when siblings are in the same exact camp days and/or camp weeks. If you need to enroll a child in a different day/week than his/her sibling, you have to create a separate order for that, or the discount will be inadvertently removed. If this situation applies to you and you need some help as you register, please reach out to us at and we will be happy to guide you.


Our 2024 Camper handbook can be found here. Be sure to review the entire PDF as some of our policies have been updated since last year.

Projects like tie dye, sand art, clay sculptures, and so much more. We have science days where we make great messy concoctions. We also have fun food days, where we cook delicious treats to eat and enjoy. This year, we are focusing on STEM projects as well.


Woods time:

During woods time the kids can build forts, play hide and seek, capture the flag, or just let their imaginations run wild. 



Under the supervision of licensed lifeguards, kids can be refreshed with a dip in the heated pool.



The sports program is designed for fun, not just for those that are athletic. Games include, volleyball, kickball, soccer, capture the flag, knockout, basketball and more. Our younger campers enjoy tag, hide and seek, playing with the parachute, duck duck goose (which on a hot day becomes drip drip drop).
