Ridgeville Summer Camps

Summer Camp at Ridgeville is a magical time! Our parks are flooded with kids bursting with summer energy. Our Farmers' Market brings fresh local produce right to the neighborhood. Our Sunday night concerts allow community members of all ages to share in the artistic talents of local musicians. Our Shakespeare on the Ridge festival draws families out of their homes to experience free, live outdoor theater.

There's no doubt about it. Summer is special here.

As you look at the variety of summer camp options for your child(ren), we hope that you will consider what Ridgeville has to offer. For years, Ridgeville has provided kids with a fantastic summer experience, while staying true to its mission of being a safe, nurturing, and affordable option for parents. We take your child's care very seriously and are committed to maintaining a child to counselor ratio that is no higher than six to one. We want our well-trained staff to be able to give each child the attention that he or she deserves. We also want to facilitate and encourage activities that allow all of our children to thrive in an environment that values their imaginative and creative input.  Our camps grow in popularity each year and space is limited, so don’t wait to sign up! Spots fill on a first-come-first-serve basis.
