Camp Paradise


2020 Camp Paradise Season


Camp Paradise offers five weeks of themed summer camp for adults with developmental disabilities during the summer months. Both day and residential camp is available. Campers enjoy swimming, crafts, indoor and outdoor games and theme related activities.

Camp Paradise empowers campers to develop independence, self-esteem and life-long friendships in a caring and nurturing environment. A program of SHC/The Arc of Medina County for 50 years, our camp engages campers in a variety of activities ranging from creative arts like music and art therapy to sports, outdoor adventures, swimming, wagon rides and bonfires.

Campers from all over Ohio and surrounding states are welcomed at Camp Paradise.

2021 Camp Update:

It is with a heavy heart due to the current state of the Covid-19 pandemic, we have made the difficult decision to cancel Camp Paradise activities this summer. The decision, once again was not an easy; however, we believe it to be in the best interest of our camp devotees – both campers and staff alike. Everyone’s health and safety is our top priority.

We are hopeful 2022 will find us at Camp Paradise reconnecting with old friends and making new ones through new adventures. Please, share your ideas for next year with our Camp and Volunteer Coordinator, Joan Long, [email protected] and follow us on our Facebook page,

Until 2022, please stay home and stay safe, The Camp Paradise Team
