Common Ground is a nonprofit organization that is home to summer day camps for youth, adult team-building programs, and custom-designed seminars. We have a top-rated zipline canopy tour open to the public, the proceeds from which are reinvested in our youth programs.

We are located on 30 wooded acres along the Vermilion River just 10 minutes west of Oberlin, Ohio.
