Making Dreams Come True

Camp Cornish offers 15 acres of forested land bordered by the area’s beautiful Amish country. Grounds include Cornish Lodge and a primitive camping area. It was established on May 17, 1946, when the deed for the camp was transferred to Mount Vernon Girl Scouts. Ten years later, the Mount Vernon Rotary Club built a log cabin lodge there. In 2006, the club assisted with the demolition of the old building and a new lodge was dedicated on May 17, 2008. 

Camp Cornish Lodge Details:

Max occupancy: 50 people 

Max Sleeping occupancy: 20 people 

No alcohol or tobacco products permitted on the property.

Rental fees are $150 per day for corporate/ private parties $50 per day for non-profits. 


The Community Foundation and private donors, The Ariel Foundation and Ramser Arboretum, provided the funds to purchase the campsite. All three contributed significantly to the construction of the new lodge on the campgrounds, completed in 2007. The Camp Cornish Foundation manages the property. The Girl Scouts of Ohio’s Heartland is given access to the camp facilities 35 days per year.
