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 need the following items each day:
- Extra set of clothes

PLEASE MAKE SURE TO LABEL EVERYTHING SENT TO CAMP!
Does your staff participate in training?
All Oasis Day Camp staff participates in extensive training before and during the summer. Training topics include child development, behavior management, using transition times effectively, basic first aid, teamwork, how to teach to different learning styles and effective communication. Additional training and certification are required for all staff working in our Health Office and Aquatics Program.
What medical staff do you have on-site?
Oasis at LIU Post has always a full time RN or EMT on site. In addition to this, all leadership staff are certified in Red Cross CPR for the Professional Rescuer, First Aid Responding to Emergencies and Epi-Pen Administration. 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.
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. Your child’s physician should also note on the medical form as well. One epi-pen will be kept locked in the medical office, 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. Menus vary daily. Everything from meatballs and pasta to baked chicken fingers is part of the fare at Oasis. Of course, every meal comes with a healthy dose of vegetables and fruit as well! Do not like something? No worries, campers can choose substitutions for specific meals. Maybe you just want a bagel and cream cheese or a turkey sandwich. Thanks fine with us…we will make it right on the spot just for you!
What is required to enroll for camp?
Parents will have to fill out an online enrollment form and leave a deposit to reserve their child’s spot at camp. Before your child begins camp, a completed health form from within 12 months of the last day of camp must be submitted.
