Application and Information for SENIOR & JUNIOR Counselors
OASC has a long-standing reputation for having one of the finest summer leadership camps in the country. The secret is simple: We have quality staff with education, experience and a passion for what they do. If you ask them why they give a week of their summer each year for OASC, they will tell you that they come away just as re-energized and excited as the campers. Even though we have staff members who return every year, we also know that in order to keep the program fresh and alive we need to bring on creative new staff each year.
It could be YOU!
