Akron Rotary Camp for Children with Special Needs, Inc., is excited to have Rotary Club of Aurora’s support of our Portage Trailblazers summer camp. Celebrating its 10th summer season, the camp is located at the Happy Day School campus in Ravenna. This summer over 300 children with special needs will be served from Portage County. Every day campers experience traditional camping activities – arts and crafts, nature, sports and leisure, and swimming. Rotary Camp provides opportunities for campers to learn and grow in a safe environment, a place where they develop friendships, learn and sing camp songs, create memories that will last a lifetime and so much more.
 
Prior to camp starting, Aurora Rotarians lended a hand to move-in equipment and program supplies, unpacked and organized everything, moved tables and chairs in preparation for the first day of camp. On July 12th, Rotarians were back at it volunteering during Carnival Day assisting campers in enjoying a variety of carnival games, face painting and even snow cones. 
 
We are grateful to the Rotary Club of Aurora for your Service Above Self partnership in providing your time, talent and treasure to help enhance our Trailblazers camp for not only our campers but their families and our camp staff. Your support is helping us to continue creating a world where there are only abilities!
 
In the spirit of camping,
