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. The Sexual Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS) has put forth National Sex Education Standards to outline the information students should be taught. However, only 7.2% of students in Ohio received instruction in all 20 comprehensive sex education topics. The Ohio Revised code does not include any requirement for sex education to be medically accurate or comprehensive. In addition, it does not require important topics like consent or gender identity be taught. Camp MEE fills this need by providing campers with factual information in a fun setting.
Dates: Dayton – June 13 – 17, Cincinnati – July 18-22 • Hours: 8 am – 5 pm
Location: Clifton Neighborhood in Cincinnati, Washington Township in Dayton
