Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Is Oak Hill a day camp?

A: We currently do not have any day camp options but are considering this for a future program. Our current programs range from one night for first chance campers to 5 nights for the standard weeks.

Q: Is my child allowed to leave camp?

Q: What is your communication policy?

A: For safety purposes, we can not accommodate re-entry to camp after check-in has ended for each program.

You are welcome to pick up your child whenever necessary should an event arise, but we can not allow campers to return if they leave camp for any reason.

Q: Is my child allowed to have a cell phone?

A: Cell phones are not permitted at camp unless used for medical monitoring devices (ie: glucose monitors with phone notifications). For our campers privacy and safety, violations of the policy can lead to camp dismissal without refund.

The exception to this rule is High School week where campers are permitted to use their phones during certain activities.
