“We just can’t thank you enough for allowing him this opportunity. When you say it’s going to be a life-changin experience, you aren’t kidding!…We will do whatever it takes to see our son look that confident and happy! It will be a bit of a financial dance for us but his enthusiasm for this experience will be worth our investment and I’m sure the rewards will be ongoing.” -Parent High School of Camper 


“I just wanted to thank you, the staff and anyone else involved in the OASC Summer Camp for the past week I had at camp. It was definitely the best time I’ve ever had and I learned so much from it. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to attend, and giving me a bit of scholarship money to do so, it really means a lot to me. Even through this was my first, and last year at the camp considering I will be a senior, and my first ever OASC event, I felt like I’ve known everyone there for much longer than a week. This past week has shown me that it’s ok to be yourself, even if people are against it, and to never be afraid to do so. You are truly in charge of one of the best organizations, and are changing so many lives, including mine.” -Former Camper


“I wanted you to know that our 2 middle school boys…had an amazing experience at the Middle School Leadership Camp! My husband and I were so impressed after listening to the boys tell us about what they did and what they learned, as well as looking at some of the paperwork they brought home. We haven’t seen them that excited about a camp in a long time, and as this was more of an academic camp in many ways, we were thrilled at their reaction–they couldn’t stop talking about it for days! I got a chance to chat with some of the staff when I picked up the boys on Wednesday, and I was also impressed by the young adults I met who were mentors for my boys; lots of constructive feedback, enthusiasm, and counselors who clearly were enjoying their summer job working with middle school students (not an easy age group)!” -Parent of Middle School Camper


“OASC!!! The door that opened and took [our daughter] to higher heights then I had ever imagined!” Honestly I recall signing her up for SUMMER LEADERSHIP CAMP her Freshman year and thinking…What, how much, where, overnight, a week?!? Um…I don’t know about that! Well she went & it was the BEST decision ever! I’m not a spokesman for OASC, better then that! I am a parent who has watched our daughter excel in skills that some of us as adults never reach. [Our Daughter] continues her path with OASC in becoming stronger in leadership, communication, motivational speaking, organization, networking, time management, and so much more. In addition to the many friendships she will have forever and mentors that have made strong foot prints in her life. We are beyond proud of what she has become and a thousand times more confident when she leaves for college in a year.  Why the reason for this Long email?  Because we want to share this extraordinary organization with every student and family. As it was shared to us!” –Parent of High School Camper
