Oasis in Bayside

At Oasis in Bayside, campers have the opportunity to learn from adult role models, develop self-confidence, find adventure in a safe environment, and make friends that will last a lifetime. This summer, Oasis in Bayside offers a day camp experience tailored to your child's interests with our Camper Academies. For wide-ranging skill development campers will participate in the following academies: Science Exploration, Engineering, and Fine Arts. During academy time, your child will get to focus and develop their skills in specific content areas! Campers can learn more about the ocean through Science Exploration, build simple machines in Engineering or experiment with watercolors in Fine Arts.

Oasis in Bayside has partnered up with the QCC Chinese Academy! It offers all children Mandarin Chinese language and cultural classes, such as Chinese Dance, Kung Fu, Paper Cutting and Abacus. Chinese Academy campers will attend academy courses during the morning Monday through Friday. Parents can have their campers opt-in for no charge at all!
Can't wait for summer? Neither can we!
