Do You Offer Sibling Discounts?

The Oak Hall Summer Program does not provide discounts as we believe our pricing is done in accordance with the cost associated with the camp and equitable comparable to other camp programs in the Gainesville area. We do however understand that families with multiple children may face hardship when considering quality summer camp programs and it is our goal to GET KIDS TO CAMP! If you have multiple children, please complete and submit by May 1st the Need Based Financial Assistance application found below. A sliding scale is used to determine awards and the formula considers not only income but also number of children.

What Should My Camper Wear to Camp?

Campers should wear comfortable shorts and shirts, athletic shoes and socks. Don’t forget the sunscreen!

Is Oak Hall Summer Camp Peanut Free?

Oak Hall Summer Camp is “Nut Aware.” Oak Hall provides “peanut free snacks and lunches, but we cannot guarantee there will be no peanut products brought to camp by other campers. We stay vigilant throughout the summer to remind campers and their families we do not allow peanut products on campus.

Peanut Allergies

Any camper with a PEANUT ALLERGY is strongly encouraged to provide their own lunch. Our staff has been educated to assist campers with allergies, and Oak Hall Summer Program will take every reasonable precaution to insure we have a nut-aware environment.
