Dreaming of Summer
In 2018, we as Oakhill introduced a brand-new summer camp program that brought the true summer experience back to our campers. We took out technology and returned the laughter, took out phones and put in smiles. Oakhill Fully Charged was a huge success and we cannot wait to show you what we have planned for 2019!
Oakhill Fully Charged is coming back again with a whole new program but not straying from our foundation. This summer your camper will experience a new lunch program, camp-wide field trips, a cultivating camp atmosphere, and multiple camp locations. This will be a summer that you and your camper won't want to miss.
After taking feedback about our lunch program last summer, we are now taking it so much farther. We will now have a full-service hot lunch option located in the South Building with multiple refreshment options, hot entree choices, and a dessert every day. This is a camp focus as we want to make lunch a focal point of the summer day. There will be table games present each lunch and a clean-up game that may make you the sweeper for the day. The environment will be family style as the counselors and campers will all intermingle as the enjoy a nice lunch and maybe even a dance party. Every camper will look forward to lunch for the amazing meals or the activities that come along with our lunchroom games. Who will be crowned the lunchroom champions?
Camp-Wide Field Trips
We are expanding our field trips to offer them camp-wide and to every age! As a camp, we understand that different ages need and want different field trips and we have listened. We will venture off-site each and every week so there is always something for your camper to look forward to. Our highlighted field trips for this year in our 4-8th-grade team are Worlds of Fun, Rowdy Ribbit's, and maybe an overnight trip! Our 1-3rd group will experience Lego Land, the Kansas City Zoo, and a trampoline park. Our youngest campers will have their field trips brought to them, whether it is a magician, bounce house or the local fire department bringing over their firetruck for us to tour. We are really focusing in on making these field trips opportunities that will build new friendships and memories that will extend far beyond this camp.
Finally, our camp atmosphere is being brought into a new light in 2019. As last year the excitement was at an all-time high, but we only plan to build on that environment. This year we will incorporate camp cheers, dress up days and a summer remodel to our buildings. We will use our camp cheers from the time we arrive until the moment your camper leaves. It may even be brought up at home as the campers will get to bond as they scream out their favorite cheers throughout the summer. Our brand-new dress up days for our campers will be a challenge every Monday with a group being crowned champion each day and shown off on our social media profiles. The dress-up days include superhero showdown, twin day and much more. Everyone involved in camp will be encouraged to participate, from counselors all the way down. Also, our buildings will get a summer makeover for when you arrive to drop your camper off on the first day you will know its time to party as the school building will look similar but now will scream summer time!
Room to Grow
This year we are so excited to announce the inclusion of both buildings at Oakhill Day School giving us more room for our campers and for activities. Our oldest team will call the South Building home, while our youngest campers will be in the Main Building for their own space. This will give each group a sense of belonging and a place they can grow and design.
Overall, this year is going to be everything 2018 was and so much more! We plan to deliver the best summer ever in 2019. This summer will deliver a delicious lunch each and every day, adventures your camper will never forget, an environment they can be themselves and big enough room to fulfill all dreams. Please come to see what we are about here at Oakhill Fully Charged before your sections fill up! This will be the best summer your camper has ever been a part of!
