Thankfully the only bears at this year’s Camp Ed Bear were of the stuffed variety.

This yearly tradition, which started in 1982, offered a weekend of fun and games at Camp Carl in Ravenna for 91 kids who have or are currently undergoing treatment for cancer or blood disorders at Akron Children’s Hospital.
