OYO Camp, August 1-7 2021

The best week of summer will be back this year!

Hello Everyone!

The weather is getting warmer and warmer, the days are getting longer and longer, and trees and flowers are starting to blossom. This can only mean one thing! Summer is well on its way and with it, yet another session of OYO Camp!

After missing last summer due to COVID, We are back this summer but with some changes to ensure that we can still provide a top-notch, high-quality, safe, and healthy program. We will be adhering to the Center for Disease Control, the Department of Health for the State of Ohio, and the American Camp Association guidelines.

Registration opens on April 15th

Camp Fee will be $275

When applications are sent in, this does not mean a spot is guaranteed.

Transportation to and from camp this year will be the responsibility of the parents or legal guardian. We cannot safely provide transportation from the individual CCDs.

Jr. Oyo is limited to 10 campers and will now be a full week

There will only be 50 campers in total and each age group will remain together as a cohort for the full week with minimal interaction with other groups. Each age group ( 10-12, 13-14, 15-16) will be limited to 12 campers each.

The 17-18-year-old group will be limited to 4 campers and will operate as a counselor in training and leadership program to prepare them for a future at OYO and the real world! They will embark on a two-day backpacking trip with staff into Mohican State Forest.

There will still be many of the same activities that we’ve all come to know and love in addition to some new ones!!

Cabins are limited to 8 people( including staff) so there will be an option for campers to bring their tents and camping equipment and camp outdoors all week in a designated area with staff supervision. ( the Camp Director will be camping out in this area!)

There will be a rapid COVID test administered on Registration Day before you will be allowed on the property

There will be an increased focus on cleanliness and health care with nurses to reduce the risk of spread. Masks will be worn when social distancing cannot be adhered to. Hand sanitizers will be placed throughout the camp.

Most importantly, we believe that every child deserves the right to be a camper and If there isn’t a spot this summer, we fully anticipate that 2022 will allow us to reopen at full strength and without any limitations.

As always, feel free to reach out to us with questions at OYOcoordinator@dsc.org or OYOCamp@dsc.org
