What does my child need to bring to camp?
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email with more information on what to bring to camp. PLEASE don’t forget to clearly label all of your child’s belongings with their full name as we have a camp-wide goal of no lost items each day.
Do you separate children by age and gender?
Can we request that my camper be placed in a group with another camper (buddy requests)?
Yes. Buddy requests can be made during the registration process until May 1. We always do our very best to accommodate buddy requests as we know how important this can be to our campers. Once a child is in a group they can not be moved.

All first-time attending campers will have to complete the necessary online camp forms and a waiver in order to participate in Oak Tree Camps. These forms are required by both the County and the State in some of our camp locations. We also require daily temperature checks and health screening. All campers are also required to have current health insurance.

How do you handle inclement weather?
Safety is our number one priority at all times, and we are extremely mindful of the weather. Camp directors receive alerts via phone if lightning is detected within 20 miles of their location. When lightning is detected within 10 miles of our current location, outdoor activities are brought into the pavilion. In the event of server weather such as tornado warning or flash flood, we are a short walk from an indoor facility to take shelter at the Stone Mountain Park Police and Fire Dept.
How do I register for Oak Tree Camps?
It’s easy to register online. Simply click on the registration link in the menu. Since all of our summer programs have limited enrollment, we encourage you to register early since we fill up quickly.
How do referrals work?
Should my camper enroll in multiple weeks of camp?
Yes! Oak Tree has a wide variety of activities so our campers never get bored with the same thing and our average camper enrolls in 4 weeks of camp each summer.
Do you offer discounts?
Do you accept walk-up registrations?
This year we will not accept walk-up registration. Our group numbers are limited and must be planned in advance to maintain our 10:1 ratio and pod groups.
Do I receive a confirmation when I register?
Once you register and pay for your camp program(s), you will receive a camp confirmation email for your own records. In addition, you will receive an informational email on the Wednesday morning prior to the upcoming camp week. This email will provide you with all necessary information including carpool, what to bring to camp, directions, and more.
What is your cancellation policy?
Can Oak Tree Camps accommodate children with peanut or other life-threatening allergies?
Yes. Families with children who have peanut or nut allergies can feel safe and comfortable at Oak Tree Camps. We are well aware of the dangers and concerns with all children's allergies and take our allergy procedures and systems seriously. Upon registration (and in the morning of each camp day), camp directors take special note of the children with allergies by placing a mandatory, but inconspicuous, colored bracelet around the child’s wrist marked with the child’s name for identification purposes (in case of EpiPen use, etc). If you have any questions about our policies, please feel free to contact us anytime or see the Site-Director on location. If your child requires an EpiPen at camp, please be sure to place the EpiPen in a clear plastic bag along with the name of the camper on the bag. This bag (and any necessary instructions) should be presented to the location Site-Director upon check-in on Monday morning. The EpiPen should stay on location throughout the week and then picked up on Friday.
What precautions do you take to handle the summer heat?
Oak Tree Camps is aware that the unwavering summer heat can drain a camper throughout the day and week.
In addition, we ensure that sunscreen is re-applied on your camper throughout the day. We typically plan to re-apply sunscreen at 9:30 am and 1 pm. We always have sunscreen on-site if your camper forgets or loses their sunscreen. All sunscreen applications are logged in our Sunscreen Log Book so that we can easily monitor all campers.
How does Oak Tree Camps differ from other camps?
Oak Tree Camps is not a specialty camp. If we had to specialize in anything it would be fun. Our primary focus is not on just physical fitness, but on a variety of activities to engage campers mentally and physically, of all ages and interests.
What is an elective?
Electives are activities that only meet once during the week and are scheduled based on demand with your camper's regular activities. If you select an elective it will be placed during one of the three periods on one day of the week for your camper to enjoy! Electives tend to be activities that do not require 4 full days to complete. Some electives are 2 activity periods in length. Elective require registration and are an additional fee.
How long is each activity?
Morning program begins at 8:30 and ends at 11:55 pm. Typically, each activity is 45 minutes long. Campers have 10 minutes between each activity to use the restroom, wash their hands, and hydrate. Our campwide walkie system notifies counselors when each activity begins and ends. In addition, attendance is taken at each activity period.
Who do you call first?
In any situation, regardless of the circumstance, the parents/guardians of the camper are called first (starting with the primary account holder). If no contact is made, the first listed emergency contact is called and then the others in sequence.
Separated or divorced parents that had legal custody during the marriage still retain legal custody of their children unless there is a court order terminating or changing their rights.
All prescription medications MUST be left in the original pharmacy container labeled with the child's first and last name, with the EXACT number of medication needed. Medications are administered exactly as prescribed by the physician, no exceptions. Therefore, medications must include pharmacy label with correct instructions as prescribed by the physician. Any medications submitted to camp in anything other than the original container WILL NOT be accepted.
How much is camp?
For summer 2021, camp is $350 per week.
