Located in Sandusky County’s backyard, just three miles from Downtown Fremont, we encourage youth to make friends, be creative in a safe environment, embrace nature, find their “Spark”; purpose and passions, and get away from the TV & computer to discover their own realities on our 47-acre complex along the Sandusky River. Close to home but far from virtual reality!
Swimming in Damschroder Pond, archery, canoeing, wood working and experimenting with outdoor science are just some of fun filled activities youth attending Camp Fire Sandusky County Camps have the opportunity to do. A Summer Camp Experience all under the watchful eyes of trained counselors. Summer camp helps bridge the gap between childhood and adulthood by building self-esteem, leadership skills and stretching the imagination while gaining an appreciation for the environment and community.
Camp Fire Sandusky County offers a variety of Day Camp Options for youth in pre school- 6th grade. We offer convenient before- and after- camp options for the working parents!
