Frequently Asked Questions

Where is camp located?

For campers entering pre-k through 1st grade in the fall, camp is located at the Master's School (49 Clinton Avenue, Dobbs Ferry) while campers entering grades 2nd or above, will use the Mercy College Campus as their home-base (555 Broadway).

 

The Master's School gives Oasis the opprotunity to provide a traditional camp experience with a variety of age appropriate activities for our youngest campers, that allow kids to learn new ways to express their individuality, leadership and creativity, while utilizing their grassy fields, indoor meeting spaces and newly built athletic complex. The Mercy College Campus provides our older campers with access to phenomenal athletic facilities including playing fields, tennis courts, basketball courts, an outdoor swimming pool, nature trails and much more - all against the picturesque backdrop of the Hudson River.

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.  Starting their second week 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 hours 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 tshirt, 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 flipflops/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 our scalp and eyes. 

What should my child bring to camp?

LABEL EVERYTHING!

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)
  • lunch
  • sunscreen
  • 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 guide line 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 campers 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?

You can send your child to camp with a packed lunch in a insulated, non-disposable lunch bag that will be kept in coolers during the day. You can also sign up for our catered hot lunch service for an additional fee. 

What is required to enroll for camp?

Parents will have to fill out a registration form to enroll for camp, or use our online system to do so. Before your child begins their stay at camp with us, they will need a completed health form. Immunizations are required to be submitted in order for a health form to be considered complete. The completed health form cannot be over a year old, and is REQUIRED for your child to attend camp.
