Since 1980, Ruffing has offered dynamic camp programs for children from all educational experiences. Camps are held on Ruffing’s campus with private children’s gardens, an extensive playground and access to Shaker Lakes. Our LEED certified building features environmentally conscious design and construction elements with comfortable classrooms, attractive commons areas, kitchens, an art studio, a theatrical stage, and a gymnasium with a rock wall. Waste-free lunches, energy efficiency, and care of the environment and each other inspire our work with children.
A Ruffing staple for over forty years, Summer Ruffing It! is a 6 week day camp designed to promote academic, athletic, and artistic enrichment. Campers work with a variety of professionals and trained educators who provide a joyful, quality experience in small, student-centered groups. Topics covered include art, athletics, community service, drama, media, music, science, and technology. Field trips to a variety of nearby educational/cultural institutions further enhance each camper's experience.
