Summer Activities Project

Beech Creek Botanical Garden, The Wilderness Center in Wilmot, Baylor Beach, and the Akron Art Museum are just a few of places we adventure to each summer. As a prime community builder of southeast Canton, we are committed to continuing relationships that Lighthouse staff and children have built throughout the school year. In the summertime, we focus on taking field trips outside of Canton, OH, enjoying the outdoors, and going to places where children can learn new things and have a lot of fun in the process. You can follow our summer adventures through pictures at @LHMCanton.
