Week 5 Schedules and Events!

Hi-Dee-Hi Oasis families!

It's hard to believe we've already into the second half of the summer! Last week's Harry Potter and Halloween celebrations were a great success, and I encourage you to take a look at some of the photos and videos from last week (as well as the entire summer so far) at a link to our summer albums here. If you have mot yet received the password or have forgotten it, please email us at union@oasischildren.com. This week we will return to our Week "A" schedule. Check below for the schedule for each group!

Here are a couple quick notes about our events this week:

A couple quick notes:

  • Water and snack break times (as well as a time to do a sunscreen check) are built into all periods, so anytime campers need to re-hydrate or get a snack they'll be able to! Snacks will be provided but campers are encouraged to bring their favorite snacks from home!
  • Wednesdays are our Crazy Dress-Up Days! As this week is our Camper Talent Show on Thursday (more info on that below), campers are encouraged to dress up and wear any costume that they may need for their Talent Show performance on Thursday this week. More info will be sent home this week regarding the show will be sent home in the next few days.
  • On Wednesdays, campers also pay a visit to the Liberty Hall Museum! The Liberty Hall Museum staff continues to deliver exciting programming to our campers, and this week will be no different!
  • Additionally, this Wednesday is a special event for all the 11 Oasis camp locations: it's the Tully Cup competition at our Tully Park location in Long Island. Our campers from 1D (Lenape Village) will head to there on Wednesday to compete in this Oasis-wide competition, with activities ranging from relay races to kickball to a banner-making competition. Campers in 1D are encouraged to wear red on Wednesday, since Oasis in Union is the red team! Additional information will be sent home in the next few days and I'll post updates on our blog as soon as information from the competition comes in! 
  • Thursdays have a special period for Choice, a camp-wide event that allows campers in all groups to participate with each other in tons of exciting activities that are normally not on our schedule! Among other activities, last week campers were able to choose from football, croquet and an Oasis in Union original game we call "Ball Ball" (an intense, fast-paced game of catch played in a circle). Campers had a blast in all the Choice activities last week and we're looking forward to more choices this week!
  • Fridays are our Special Event Days and every week is different based on our weekly theme! This week, we are actually hosting two large events: Thursday (as mentioned above), is the Camper Talent Show! Campers will have lots of time to practice their talent, which can be a song, dance, musical performance, etc. this week in preparation for the show! Of course, families are invited and encouraged to attend! On Friday, we're hosting our Staff Talent Show along with a Battle of the Network Stars/America's Got Talent-style competition. May the best staff member win! More information about both shows including timings and locations on Monday and Tuesday. Our last family event, the Block Party was a great success and it was awesome to see so many families in attendance! I hope to see you this week, as well!
  • Fridays are also the day our campers visit the farm which is located right at Liberty Hall! The Groundwork Elizabeth's Come Grow With Us Program has invited us to tour their farm and participate in some enriching farming activities! Our time on the farm continued last week as campers harvested tomatoes! I can't wait to see what's in store for this week!
