CAMP PROGRAM INFO: About the Highbrook Camp Program:

Our philosophy is simple: All people have abilities and our mission is to enable children and adults to realize their full potential through the recreation activities at Highbrook.

Safety is paramount to this mission. Our leader screening includes a criminal background check through the Ohio Bureau of Criminal investigation. All staff participates in a week-long orientation with sessions about sighted guide techniques, accessibility for people who are blind and visually impaired, and CPR and First Aid certification. Emergency drill training and procedures include weather, fire, injury, and lost camper. Children are always supervised by counselor teams, and attendance is taken several times daily. We have a resident Registered Nurse to dispense medication and carry out physician-ordered treatments for conditions such as asthma, diabetes, and glaucoma, to address possible emergencies, and to educate about wellness. Geauga County Hospital is literally within walking distance. Each year we communicate with the sheriff, fire, and police departments in the area to announce our summer arrival. We are grateful for their service and assistance in maintaining a very safe environment at Highbrook Lodge.

We ask to be partners with parents in our efforts to provide a safe camp experience for their children. Our application provides ample space to provide information related to a child’s special needs including vision, behavior, health, and diet. Please be as thorough and complete with information as possible. No tidbit is too trivial when a child becomes homesick, displays anxiety or anger, or has difficulty ‘fitting’ in. In the event of injury or incidents we call home to ask your advice and inform you of any unusual circumstances.  When you arrive to pick up your child at the end of their camp session our goal is that you will not have any surprises about their care.

Our program for children is structured and progressive. Our day begins at 7:00 A.M. and progresses through meals, 3- 6 activity periods depending on age group, evening program, and cabin time. Our campers are kept busy and active throughout the day and usually are ready for bed at night.  Our activities and procedures are based on traditional camp experiences to instill confidence and build self-esteem, enable peer support and getting along with others in a diverse world, and trying new things and mastering old skills. Campers are challenged to be as independent as possible, make decisions about activities, make choices in their day, help others, and be active. 

Every effort is taken to help a child have a successful camp experience, but we will not force a child to endure a full session if they are overwhelmed by homesickness or other anxiety.

From time to time children and teens test the limits of authority and disciplinary actions need to be imposed. Highbrook Lodge staff will first discuss and correct inappropriate behavior. If behavior is not corrected (and it most often is) and depending on the situation, a child may receive a brief time-out from an activity (never sent to their cabin or away from the group), a loss of privilege such as the camp store, or a proactive assignment such as providing extra help during cabin clean-up (but never to clean the cabin alone, for example). Corporal punishment, cabin hazing, initiations and the like are forbidden at Highbrook Lodge and should be reported immediately to the Camp Director if reported by a camper to their parents. We ask parents to discuss the golden rule with children prior to coming to camp and reinforce their need to listen and obey, get along with others, ask permission from their counselors, mind their manners, and respect others’ person and property.

Campers will be sent home for threatening physical or verbal behavior toward others, inappropriate or sexual advances, bringing alcohol, illicit drugs,  weapons, or offensive materials to camp, refusing to participate or follow directions, stealing, or destruction of property.

Registration for Highbrook Lodge is required. Applications are requested no later than June 1st. As sessions tend to fill rapidly, applications are accepted on a first-come first serve basis.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: Financial aid application is available in camp registration packet.

FAMILY CAMP SESSION(S): Bright Future for families of children 0-6 who have a diagnosed vision impairment, and their siblings (all ages). You will enjoy the activities and facilities of Highbrook, meet other families with children with a vision impairment, and be able to speak with professional staff of the Cleveland Sight Center.

Family Sessions are available for children 6 and above with a vision impairment. Join us for a long weekend.

Cohen Syndrome Family Gathering is for children and adults diagnosed with Cohen's Syndrome. More information at This Website Link

YEAR-ROUND PROGRAMS: Highbrook offers various year round activities and weekend events for different age groups.

Girls in our Chincapin Equestrian program also get to take advantage of our second property that includes a Barn, riding areas, and 13 horses. Riding lessons focuses on English style riding, safety, an appreciation of the sport, good riding form, and horse care.

Campers in our Red Oak Teen Travel Camp use our cabin area as their base camp before they take off on adventures that might include backpacking, whitewater rafting, rock climbing, canoeing, and more.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Red Oak Camp has a rich history as a premier camp for adventure trips and travel programming. We are excited to again offer these exciting opportunities for summer 2014. Throughout all of our trips, campers will have the time of their lives. They’ll participate in a range of activities, including whitewater rafting, climbing, backpacking, caving, canoeing, mountain biking, and more. They will build skills and confidence to help them through high school and college and contribute to their future success!

The Red Oak program is exemplary at serving our mission, of building our campers’ inner strengths though outdoor adventure. Campers will spend two full weeks with us. The first week will be spent at Red Oak “base camp” in Kirtland. Here they’ll develop the outdoor skills, leadership, self-confidence, and perseverance that will help them be successful during the second week of the program. In week two, campers will put those skills to use on adventures in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, New York, or Kentucky–adventures they will remember always. Adventures that will foster life-long friendships.

Red Oak maintains a unique outdoor educational philosophy in which campers get to design their own experience. The camper day is divided between Campers Choice and Open Activities, with some special programs thrown in throughout the week.

Campers Choice is where are staff are able to provide progressive experiential education. Campers sign up for the areas that most excite them and participate in them throughout the week. Camper’s Choice activities include high adventure, canoeing/kayaking, fishing, wood shop, sports, outdoor survival and fire building, target sports, and more.

Open Activities is when our staff gets to be a bit more creative and offer programs that allow campers to try a little bit of everything (and hopefully some things that they haven’t yet tried). Open Activities may include activities such as tomahawk throwing, paintball slingshots, arts and crafts, crate stacking, double ball, creek stomping, orienteering and much more.

Additionally, each week of the summer will have a theme. Both Camper’s Choice and Open Activities often get tailored to match the theme of the week and special programs will occur, culminating in a large “all camp” activity on Friday. Campers are encouraged to dress the part and bring supplies to fit each theme.

MULTIPLE WEEK DISCOUNT
For all Red Barn and Chincapin programs there is a 2 week minimum. Sign up for 4 or more weeks and receive a 10% discount on the cost of tuition.

CAMP AMBASSADOR DISCOUNT
Help us spread the word!
If your camper brings a friend to camp who is a brand new camper, your camper and the friend will both receive a 10% discount on every week that they both attend.
-or-
Host a camp information party at your home. Invite your friends and neighbors. Red Oak Camp will provide snacks straight from our kitchen and send staff to your home to talk about the benefits of Camp and the great programs that we have to offer.

We encourage your experienced camper to put together a scrap book or photo album of camp memories to talk about as well. Families that host these information sessions will receive a $50 camp voucher if a minimum of 3 new families attend, and will receive the above “Share the Fun” discount if any of the families that attend end up registering their campers.

If you are interested in hosting a camp information party, please contact Adam Cassi at director[AT]redoakcamp.org.
