Fun for Now, Skills for Life Widely recognized throughout the Midwest as Ohio’s premier summer camp since 1959, Falcon Camp offers a beautiful lakefront setting, talented experienced staff, and a wide range of activities. “Fun for Now, Skills for Life” is not just a catchy motto but truly defines what Falcon is about.
Camp is designed for boys and girls ages 6 – 16 in 2,4,6 or 8 week sessions. Each day campers choose their own schedule within a general framework. Daily activities are separate for boys and girls with planned coed events. Riding, sailing, swimming, riflery, crafts, tennis, drama, archery, mountain biking and so many more activities are offered. Instruction from beginner to advanced is offered in each activity.
We have a strong reputation for making sure a camper’s first overnight experience is very positive. Our non-competitive environment is inviting to campers who may be hesitant to try something they have never done before, while our awards system challenges our most experienced campers. The 1:4 staff/camper ratio allows individual instruction and attention. Most of all it’s great fun!
Falcon also has a special Young Adventure program for campers ages 6 -9. These one week intro sessions are designed for first time campers. ACA accredited, many NE Ohio references are available along with campers from all over the United States and the world. Being so close to several major cities allows families to visit beforehand, meet staff and feel “at home” prior to attending. Falcon is an outstanding opportunity for fun and learning.
A summer at Falcon is a special experience where good things happen by design. Visit our website, www.falconcamp.com, call 800/837-CAMP or email Info@FalconCamp.com for more information. Located on Leesville Lake in Carrollton, Ohio.

I was contacted by Costume Supercenter to do a review of one of their costumes. I was really excited about this because my kids love to not only play dress up but they are also very excited each year about Halloween. As soon as Halloween ends they are already planning what they want to be next year!
My daughter and I looked over the many girls dress up costumes available on the Costume SuperCenter website and were amazed at just how many choices were available! They not only have the Halloween costumes that you would expect but even St. Patrick’s Day costumes, Easter costumes and Biblical costumes for kids that would be perfect for that nativity play when you have to have a shepherd costume or else!
Alex and I talked for a while about the Historical costumes — I thought the Colonial Girl costume was really cute. But Alex has had her heart set on being a Native American Indian since last October so we looked over the selection of Indian costumes that Costume SuperCenter offers.
Alex fell in love with the Indian Girl costume because she liked the colors of the dress and the fact that it came with a matching headband. I wasn’t sure how it would look on her but we agreed that it certainly looked cute in the photo on the Costume SuperCenter site.
The costume arrived promptly and was carefully packaged. As soon as I opened it up Alex rushed to try it on. The dress was of a much better quality then I would have expected — the material, a faux suede, is very soft and Alex appreciated the fact that it wasn’t itchy like some of her dress up outfits and costumes have been in the past. The headband slips on easily and the included feather makes for a very sweet Indian princess. There is also a tie that goes around the waist and hangs down to finish off the look. The costume is very easy to get on and off and fits Alex quite well.
Alex loved the costume! She tested it thoroughly by running through the house and up and down the stairs pretending to be an Indian princess — the dress is sturdy enough that it should hold up well to being used for dress up until she can use it for Halloween later this year. She also plans to use it for the costume contest at the stable where she rides — we’re going to add some war paint for both her and her horse, along with some extra feathers and a bow and arrow and she’ll be ready to impress the judges!
Here are a couple photos of my Indian princess — doesn’t she look cute all dressed up:
Thank you to Costume Supercenter for the neat dress up/Halloween costume, Alex is looking forward to using it for dress up as well as for her Halloween costume this year — it’s just perfect!
