Now more than ever, kids need summer camp. According to health officials, the risk of transmitting COVID-19 in an outdoor environment like camp is low, but the benefits of socialization, exercise, and learning would be tremendous.
The Oasis team is taking steps to keep campers and staff safe this summer by implementing guidelines from the CDC, American Camp Association, and New York State Health Department at LIU Post, Downtown, and Dobbs Ferry day camps.
Oasis at LIU Post will open on July 6, and the Downtown and Dobbs Ferry summer camps will begin on July 13. Camp runs through August 21, and there’s still time to enroll.
The Oasis team's priority is to provide a safe and fun environment while adhering to the CDC and the Department of Health guidelines for COVID-19. Our dedicated staff is prepared to operate under these new guidelines and are committed to sharing timely communications with our families. We've designed our COVID-19 safety plan to be flexible, so we can adapt and refine our responses.

Reimagining a Safer Summer Camp
Oasis day camps offer unique settings for children to be outside and practice social distancing with greater ease. This summer, campers will be organized into small self-contained groups called cohorts that stay together each day with the same dedicated staff members.
Although electives will not be an option, our programming provides campers with a full schedule of fun-filled, age-appropriate activities. Athletics, swimming, arts and crafts, performing arts, outdoor adventure, and interactive play will be offered and taught by expert instructors. Sports and games will focus on skill-building and drills to limit contact as much as possible. All equipment and supplies will be cleaned and disinfected before being used by another group.
If rain is in the forecast, the LIU Post and Downtown locations will be open for rainy days with sufficient indoor space. Dobbs Ferry may need to cancel camp for the day and will notify parents ahead of time.
In these uncertain times, Oasis is excited to offer an amazing summer for our campers. Parents can contact camp directors with any questions about the 2020 season:
