What is the Akron Rotary Chili Open Golf Classic?

<Watch the video on the left to experience the Chili Open.

Your participation in Akron Rotary’s Chili Open Golf Classic presented by Wayne Homes will help serve more than 1,800 children and adults along with their families with a wide range of developmental and physical disabilities and mental health disorders through our day, overnight and year round respite camp programs. 

At Rotary Camp, campers are provided the opportunity to experience traditional camping activities, develop relationships, learn life skills and create memories that last a lifetime. When campers leave Rotary camp at the end of each session, they not only leave with l
ifelong memories and friends, but they often show more independence as well as a greater understanding of themselves and their abilities.
