We like to think of Camp O’Bannon in the summer as a family of 90 or so. So pretty much anything a family needs, we use too. We do provide t-shirts and shorts for the campers each day, so clothes donations can be better used at other social service agencies.
And our beds are ‘camp size’, so sheets are not a need.
Other things we use include:
1920s - 1930s
* “Fresh air” camp supported by the State Ohio opens
* 20th Century Club and Newark Kiwanis Club begin involvement and support
* Camp relocated to present site
* One of the original 6 United Way Agencies
1940s - 1950s
* Adjacent properties purchased and facility improvements completed
* Outpost program begins and locates to present site- 145 acres adjacent to Blackhand Gorge
* Camp embarks on facilities and infrastructure upgrades
* Conselor-in-Training program begins
* New pool constructed on camp property
