Hiram House Camp



Founded in 1896, Hiram House is the oldest camp in the State of Ohio and one of the oldest in the United States. The mission of Hiram House is to enrich the lives of children through camping. We provide the youth of our community with an opportunity to live, play and learn in an environment that is racially, ethnically, and socio-economically diverse. Hiram House is committed to promoting family values, building character, and opening new horizons for youth.

Hiram House offers day and overnight camp, school camp, teambuilding retreats, weekend rentals, horseback riding lessons and more. The camp programs at Hiram House are for youth ages 5-14. During the summer, campers participate in various outdoor activities including archery, canoeing, camp crafts, high/low ropes, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, orienteering, outdoor skills, performing arts, swimming, wildlife, and environmental studies.

New camper enrollment will begin on January 2, 2023. The summer camp season will begin on June 12th for the day camp and June 18th for overnight camp. Families interested in enrolling for the summer can log on to the camp’s website for more information.  

Hiram House has also started recruiting for the 2023 summer season. Camp staff is recruited from colleges and universities throughout the country and abroad. Overnight Camp staff must have completed their first year of college while Summer Day Camp and Junior Day Camp staff must be at least 16 years old. There are a variety of instructor positions available, including Archery, Horseback Riding, Arts & Crafts, Sports, Boating, Performing Arts, Nature, Lifeguards, Camp Nurse and more. If you know of anyone interested in applying for a summer job, please contact the camp’s Program Director Konner Lashley at (216) 831-5045.

Hiram House also helps Campership youth for the overnight summer camp program. A Campership is financial assistance available to youth from low-income families, youth in foster care and various social service agencies. Hiram House partners with agencies across Northeast Ohio to enroll you for overnight camp. This experience can be life changing for a camper and creates memories that last a lifetime. If anyone is interested in supporting the mission of Hiram House, please contact Executive Director Courtney Nicolai at (216) 831-5045 or
