How can I get in touch with you?
Can I visit my child at camp?
YES!! Starting your camper’s second week we highly encourage you to visit us. We do not allow parent visits during the first week of camp in order to allow your campers time to acclimate to their new surroundings. So come ready to have fun and join in. Call the office to make set up a time to visit. We ask that you give us 24-hour notice. When you arrive for your visit please come to the main office. We will outfit you in your own Oasis t-shirt. Make sure you come dressed ready to fully participate in all aspects of the program. Yes, if you are coming during your camper’s swim period bring your suit and be ready to jump in the pool!
What do campers wear at camp?
All campers must wear their Oasis t-shirt, shorts, socks, and sneakers.
For the pool, please send your camper with a bathing suit (either on them or in a plastic bag), a towel, and flip-flops/Crocs (you may also want to send goggles and a swim cap).
We highly encourage sending your camper with a hat and sunglasses to protect their scalp and eyes.
For our younger campers, parents may send an extra change of clothes in their bookbag.
What should my child bring to camp?
Campers should bring everything that they need for camp in the Oasis backpacks. Campers should bring:
- swim gear
- water bottle (not the metal ones, they get hot too fast)
- spare change of clothes
What medical staff do you have on-site?
Oasis in Dobbs Ferry has a full-time RN or EMT on-site at all times. In addition to this, all leadership staff and several group leaders are Red Cross CPR, First Aid and Epi-Pen Administration certified. Please know that our staff IS NOT allowed to administer medicine to your child. The only exception to this Department of Health guideline is epi-pens. A member of our medical staff or your Division Leader will call you if your child receives medical attention of any kind.
If your child should require an epi-pen or an asthma pump, please feel free to send one to the camp’s summer office in a labeled Ziploc bag. Staff will have the medication ready in case of an emergency.
My child has severe allergies and needs to bring an Epi-pen, what should I do?
Please make sure that you indicate any and all important medical information that we need to know about your camper on his/her medical form. Please alert your Division Leader that your child will be bringing epi-pens to camp. Please bring 2 pens, both of which need to have a copy of the original prescription taped to them and be clearly labeled with your camper’s name. One epi-pen will be kept locked in the medical office safe. The other will go out into camp with your camper’s Division Leader every day.
What do children eat for lunch at camp?
Camp lunch is included in your tuition and the camp spirit comes to life when our campers come together at lunchtime. Whether it is beneath a shady tree or in the cool air-conditioned dining hall, campers have the chance to mingle with each other and eat with their counselors.
