Can I request a roommate? How are roommates selected?

OASC summer camps strive to make our students as comfortable as possible. Our camps are staffed with compassionate individuals who are trained to deal with a number of issues, ranging from homesickness to medical issues. High School are housed in Ackerman Hall, which is a co-ed building with same gender floors and same gender roommates. Middle School students are housed in Heritage Hall, which is a co-ed building with same gender floors and same gender roommates. For safety and security, each student is given a unique key that will unlock the building, their floor, and their room.
We attempt to room each camper with a camper from a different school and of similar grade. We hope campers see this, in addition to the rest of camp, as an opportunity to grow in their leadership skills. In line with this philosophy, we are unable to accommodate specific rooming requests. Campers are often in the same hallway as, or near to, fellow schoolmates. Campers should not “pack as pairs,” or plan to share personal items. In appropriate circumstances (e.g., medical, availability of space, returning upperclassmen campers), OASC can accommodate a single room for a camper. To ensure equal access and privacy for campers, each dorm wing has a private, non-binary bathroom available for campers in addition to the two multi-stall restroom and showering bathrooms. OASC staff would like each student to have an equal and amazing experience, and this policy assists staff in creating this equal opportunity. If there is a medical or personal need that requires rooming attention, please contact OASC Executive Director, Sara Nilles.

Can my student drive themselves to camp? (Transportation Policy)

Students are not required to have a parent or guardian present to check them in or out of camp. Many schools arrange for groups to travel together, with the ride responsibility split among family members of campers. Students may drive themselves and park their car on campus (in a designated area). Once their car is parked they are not allowed to go back and forth to their vehicle. It is NOT RECOMMENDED that students drive themselves due to emotional and physical drain that students coming to camp will experience over the course of the time together. Vehicles parked on-campus are parked at their own-risk. OASC is not responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged items during or after the camp schedule.

OASC is not responsible for transportation to and from camp.
