With the days getting longer and spring right around the corner, it’s time to “gear up” and get ready for our annual Footpath Camp. This year, Footpath will take 135 campers from Cleveland Metropolitan School District to camp in May 2023.

Our campers are excited and nervous since they've never been on an overnight adventure like this!
