Kids will experience a magical summer of fun at Oasis day camp because our summer camp activities are created specifically for them. We know that a well-rounded mix of activities is essential to a fun and memorable day camp experience. Learning how to swim, performing in a musical show, developing basic soccer skills, and connecting with nature on a hike are just a few examples of the activities we offer.

Our philosophy is to expose campers to a variety of exciting summer camp activities with expert instructors in athletics, arts and crafts, performing arts, outdoor adventure, and nature and science programs. Because we create an atmosphere of inclusiveness at Oasis day camp, kids feel safe trying new things whether that’s learning how to play softball or making a tie-dye shirt.

All of our summer camp activities are age appropriate and designed to challenge and build skills for all campers, from introductory to more advanced levels. And when a camper discovers an activity they love, they can choose to explore it on a deeper level during Choice Time.

Athletics & Aquatics

Our expert coaches teach all campers how to pass, shoot and score – whether or not they’ve played a sport before. Sports vary per camp but can include soccer, softball, basketball, volleyball, instructional swimming, flag football, and martial arts. All of the Oasis camp locations have modern athletic facilities where our experienced staff encourages the kids, while teaching the importance of teamwork and having fun.

Each week instructors review the rules of the game and focus on developing a variety of basic skills before everyone participates in playing. If a camper discovers a sport they love, they can choose it during Choice Time and spend more time playing the game. During this time, kids also participate in fun-filled skill clinics that culminate in tournaments and bracket playoff games.

One of our most popular summer camp activities is swimming. We offer indoor or outdoor pools (depending on the location) where kids get to improve their skills, cool off and have fun. All Oasis day camps feature an American Red Cross learn-to-swim program with a strong emphasis on safety. Parents can be assured that their child is being supervised at all times by our aquatics directors, instructors and lifeguards.

Creative and Performing Arts

We encourage all of our campers to let their creativity shine at Oasis day camp. Kids get to tap into their imaginations and express themselves artistically during a variety of art, music, dance and theater activities.

Oasis creative and performing arts instructors are experts in their field with years of experience. Instructors share their passion and encourage campers as they teach them how to make dreamcatchers, introduce the kids to world music, or show them the latest hip-hop dance moves.

Outdoor Adventure

Playing on lush fields, exploring natural woodlands, or hiking in the park allows kids to reconnect with nature, unplug and discover. Oasis outdoor adventure activities also give campers the chance to challenge themselves individually, while working together in a group.

Our expert instructors provide guidance and lead the kids in fun activities including leaf etching, bark rubbing, rock study, planting, and identifying small creatures and insects along the trails. Everyone has fun while building friendships, self-esteem and confidence!
