The Ohio Center for Sex Education is dedicated to the proposition that all people have a right to relationship and sexual health education that will help them understand, appreciate and take responsibility for their lives. Ohio law does not require sex education to be medically accurate or comprehensive. Camp MEE fulfills this need by providing factual information in a fun setting.

Q&A with Camp MEE:
What makes Camp MEE unique?
Camp MEE is a holistic health camp that focuses on adolescent wellness. Topics range from nutrition and movement to alcohol and drugs, mental health, sexual health and decision making, and more! Camp MEE is a community camp that incorporates speakers that are experts in their field and have plentiful experience engaging with youth on topics in a way that is relevant and interactive.
What activities are offered at Camp MEE?
Each morning, campers start the day with morning movement, which could include yoga, self-defense class, dances, Simon Says and other youth-friendly games that incorporate movement. Sessions not only include the mind, but also prompt campers to interact with body movement. Each afternoon, campers will participate in a group activity that serves as a review of that day’s content. Activities include games like Taboo and Jeopardy, coloring sheets with messages about consent, and an obstacle course that requires recalling lessons learned. On the final day, campers partake in a creative expression project as a culmination of all they learned during the week.
